Which is your favorite flavour of Battle Royale? On the one hand, a spherical of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds affords a deep, tense and immersive expertise. On the opposite hand, Fortnite: Battle Royale allows you to surf around on pumpkin rockets.
If you want your 100 participant survivor clashes on the wacky aspect, you then is perhaps within the improvement roadmap the Fortnite devs put up final week, the place they discuss what they’re at the moment engaged on and what’s coming to the sport sooner or later. It consists of new modes, efforts to take care of group killers, and adjustments to the way in which taking pictures works.
You can see the total checklist of what’s deliberate by trying out the post your self, however I’ll run you thru probably the most attention-grabbing bits right here.
What stands out probably the most to me are their plans to overtake the taking pictures. They’ve at the moment acquired an inner construct that removes random bullet unfold whereas aiming down sights, with the intention being to “improve shooting while maintaining the usefulness of building cover while under fire and without changing engagement distances or the flow of the game”. I’m unsure that it’ll be sufficient to make that core a part of the sport really feel satisfying sufficient for me, however it’s positively good to see that work is being carried out on enhancing it.
The devs are already clamping down on group killing, issuing quite a few warnings and bans for offenders that they’ve acquired previously week. The system for reporting them will quickly be extra easy to make use of, and can let you know when motion has been taken based mostly on a report you made. They additionally say that they’re taking a look at implementing a system that matches you with gamers with a excessive status, which sounds a bit like Counter Strike: Global Offensive’s trust factor matchmaking.
Elsewhere within the submit, Limited Time Modes sound attention-grabbing. Coming in some unspecified time in the future in December, they’ll be “temporary experiences with special conditions that provide new ways to play”. If the primary one sounds attention-grabbing sufficient, I could nicely re-install the sport – it’d be nice to play a battle royale recreation the place everybody has the identical silly handicap, a la Playstyle Royale.
I’d like to see that come to Plunkbat, together with a few different options the Fortnite devs have deliberate. This postmatch display is one among them, which exhibits how far you travelled, your accuracy, how a lot injury you probably did and different attention-grabbing bits and items.
There’s lots extra stuff in the roadmap that I haven’t gone into, together with audio tweaks, map updates, cosmetics, efficiency optimisation and extra.
