Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced some new features it’s working on to improve the game.
A post on the official website details the changes which include general improvements to controller play, Limited Time Modes, performance, quality of life, and the replay system.
For players using a controller, you can expect improvements to both Builder Pro and Turbo building after complaints that items wouldn’t always place or be accidentally canceled. You’ll also be able to turn off aim assist mode while building so your crosshair doesn’t move to an enemy mid-construction and custom keybindings are coming in the future.
Changes to Limited Time Modes may see 50v50 or something like it stick around after the mode’s popularity. A new mode called Playground LTM is also coming which will feature the standard Battle Royale Map but with extended time and increased resource generation. Treasure and crates will automatically spawn so players can immediately drop in on the loot and friendly fire lets you shoot your squad with immediate respawns.
Epic is also looking to implement more interesting limited time items like the accidentally leaked storm tracking backpack or the jetpack which was released a few days ago and has already changed the way people are playing.
Performance issues to be addressed include optimizing load times and getting large team modes at 30Hz as well as other server improvements.
Those looking to track challengers can look forward to in match pop-ups to let you know your progress to improve quality of life. A new high-resolution mini-map with the potential for more useful map markers is also being looked at alongside UI and victory screen improvements.
Lastly, the replay system is also getting its share of improvements in part to help with the celebrity vs pro E3 antics. The new camera features will give players more control and the ability to focus on a squad, rather than an individual. Bullet trajectories are being added to the map as well as some kind of x-ray outlines of players while they’re obstructed to make for more informative videos.
