The Battle Royale aspect of Fortnite has been rolling out an update across all platforms, with the Xbox One update coming out a little later than the PS4 and PC versions.
There was thankfully no downtime for the newly implemented update, though players were required to close the game and update it once they had been notified by their respective clients.
The patch notes for update 188.8.131.52 sees a gameplay issue being fixed which was causing raindrops to appear on the screen when teammates were in the storm, even if you were not. As far as audio is concerned, there had been a problem which saw storm audio to persist even after leaving the storm. On the subject of audio, another bug has been seen to which allowed players to hear both glider and umbrella deployment sounds from far away.
Also, there has been problems with stability in the game which would see a client crash occurring whenever a player deployed their glider.
Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode is certainly the dominant game in the genre as far as consoles are concerned. This might all be about to change next month, when we see the release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as part of the Xbox One Preview program. It could be a while before we see it on PS4, but still it will be interesting to see how far Fortnite’s popularity has grown by then.
Fortnite is now available on PC, Xbox One and PC.
