Fortnite Battle Royale map update to bring new points of interest and biomes

A new update is coming very soon to "Fortnite Battle Royale", and this one is focused primarily on improving the game's map.

Last but not least, the Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update will remove the existent Christmas trees along with the chests that were placed beside them.

Once the update is available, we'll be sure to let you know. The quick two-minute development update goes over some high level changes you can expect to see when the Fortnite update goes live, with much more detailed patch notes expected to come sometime next week.

In the latest developer diary, lead systems engineer Eric Williams states a new city area will be added along with new points of interest.

The update fixes a number of issues to Battle Royale and Save the World.

According to Williamson, the Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update must happen since the island on which the 100 players are competing seems to have fewer points of interest in certain places than it should, especially around the western side of the map. "The swamp feels swampier, the mountains feel more mountain-y, really the different areas of the map feel more unique".

The NVIDIA ShadowPlay Highlights feature is accessible to those PC players who own a GeForce GTX 650 graphics card or something more advanced.
