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.”

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.
