It’s been announced that Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode is set to get a map update next week, marking the first major update of 2018. Little is known about the specifics, but according to the video in the below accompanying announcement Tweet, we’ll be getting quite a few changes to look forward to.
Eric Williamson discusses the upcoming changes in brief detail, but does go on to mention that fans will get to enjoy refined biomes, a new city area, newly named areas on the west side of the map, and quality of life changes. Holiday trees will be heading out when the update arrives, but Williamson assures us that we’ll be seeing other seasonal additions in the future.
