Fortnite adds new Updates to the Game


Fortnite for Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, and PC finally received its first major update for the year 2019. The Fortnite 7.20 update has added up new One-Shot Limited Time Mode or LTM, which is an arctic island to the game’s Creative Mode, and will also serve as a new weapon in the scoped revolver. Gliders will work differently and will behave like items with limited uses. The Fortnite 7.20 update’s download size on iOS is around 155.8MB and is available right now on the App Store. There are some Android-related fixes which will significantly improve the performance of the game on Google’s OS.

List of updates-

  • There is low gravity, and every player will have 50 health.
  • Bandages the only healing item.
  • Jump high and aim well.
  • The Storm wait time has been greatly reduced in all phases of the game.
  • The only weapons in this mode are Hunting Rifles and Sniper Rifles.
  • Semi-auto Snipers and Bounce Pads have been removed from the Vault in this mode.
  • Players will spawn with 50 health and can only heal if they find Bandages.
  • Fixed graphical problems with the Player Spawner team assignment display on Android platforms.
  • Improved disk read times on the Xbox and Android in Battle Royale and Creative to reduce the occurrence of late HLODs.
  • Improved performance on Vulkan capable Android devices in Battle Royale and Creative.
  • Frosty Fortress: a new selectable arctic island with structures already placed on it. This island is ready for games to be played right away.
  • Preview images of islands will now be displayed on top of Featured Islands in the Creative Hub.

Fortnite update 7.20 will solve the issue due to which walls had been placed underground. Unlike other battle royale games, Fortnite is unique since it allows players to protect themselves from attacks by building walls or stairs around them. In the past, there have been various problems wherein structures built by players had gone underground.

In the previous times, a report claimed that Fortnite Battle Royale maker Epic Games has already raked in $3 billion (approximately Rs. 21,008 crores) in profits in 2018 only. This was primarily due to the phenomenal success of the game Fortnite, which is a battle royale game where 100 players are paradropped on an island and the last one who stands wins. If this information is to be believed, this explains the reason behind Epic Games shifting its focus solely on Fortnite and its own Epic Games Store.
