Battle Royale

Limited Time Mode: Disco Domination

Summary
It’s time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor. The team that fills their meter the fastest by capturing and defending the dance floors will win the match!

What’s New?

  • Reduced all bandage spawns by 50%.
  • Removed all Common weapons.
  • increased the variability of where you can spawn by 30% along your sides storm circle.
  • Brought in the side dance floors closer to the Storm edge.
  • Reduced max respawn distance by 20%.

Weapons + Items

  • The Port-a-Fortress has been disabled as we work to resolve some issues related to this item.
    • Drop rate for Port-a-Fort increased from 3.05% to 4.89% while Port-a-Fortress is disabled.
      • The goal is to keep the drop rate of Port-a-Fort the same as if both items were enabled to help with the completion of Challenges.

Bug Fixes

  • Guided Missile no longer fires the wrong direction
  • Players will no longer permanently attach to a Supply Drop when grappling to it.
  • Attempting to fire while reloading the Double Barrel Shotgun will no longer interrupt the animation.
  • Weapon equip animations no longer skip when simultaneously attempting to sprint and target.

Gameplay

  • Quadcrasher
    • Seats two players.
    • You build boost just by driving. Unleash that speed with the hotkey once you’ve filled your boost meter.
    • Smash through buildings while boosting.
    • Boost off ramps or cliffs to catch sick air.
    • Launch players into the air by smashing into them.
  • You can now view and change Edit Controls separately from Combat and Build Controls in the controller menu.
  • You can now set building mode sensitivity for controllers in the options menu. It is a multiplier on the default controller sensitivity and allows up to a 2x increase.
  • Controller sensitivity slider in the options menu now allows for more than 10 values.
  • Added an option to Builder Pro that allows for building as soon as you switch to the piece, instead of selecting first and then placing. This allows for faster building without a preview.
  • Added an option that allows for edit hold timing to be adjusted.
  • Opening the Emote Picker with a controller will happen when the button is released, while holding the button will replay the emote that was last played.

Epic Games issued the notable 6.01 update for Fortnite yesterday. Following up on that, another small patch has been released.

Nintendo shared a new European Switch commercial for Fortnite today that promotes the game itself as well as the upcoming bundle. View it below.

A new update for Fornite is now available. Version 6.01 is here, featuring a bit of new content and more.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Fortnite teased an upcoming game mode in its news feed that makes emotes more important than ever. Polygon provides more detail:

It seems like the new mode will be all about dancing, or emoting, and require players to spend as much time using emotes in a certain area as possible, according to the description. While dancing may be the focus, it’s unlikely that this means guns will be gone from the mode completely, which means you’ll have to make sure you’re dancing safely.

Fortnite didn’t include a release date, but Season 6’s first content update arrives this week so we probably won’t have to wait long.

Following up on yesterday’s big 6.0 update, Fortnite has received another patch. Version 6.01 has gone live for all players.

The latest update isn’t quite as significant as yesterday, but is still notable. Version 6.01 has “fixes for item and animation issues.”

Fortnite’s Season 6 has started, and with it the game has been updated to version 6.00. Here’s the trailer for Season 6:

And a video showcasing the new Battle Pass, which is available for 950 V-Bucks:

Head past the break for the patch notes of version 6.00:

With Sony finally opening up the PlayStation 4 to cross-platform play with Fortnite, Epic Games is planning a couple of features for those who created an extra account to play the game on multiple console platforms.

First, an account-merging feature is in the works. This is scheduled for November and will allow users to combine Battle Royale purchases.

Also planned is functionality so that you’ll be able to unlink a console from one Fortnite account and relink it to another Fortnite account. Epic will make the feature available very soon, as it’s coming in just a few days.
