Fortnite Battle Royale map update to include new biomes, points of interest

The update will be rolling out next week - so get yourselves ready for the next big Fortnite: Battle Royale update!

A new update is coming very soon to "Fortnite Battle Royale", and this one is focused primarily on improving the game's map.

The 3 new locations, 1 being a city, will be added to the West-side of the map, helping to fill the empty void and even the map out, providing more points of interest, as explained in the below video. What are you most excited to see in next week's update? In the meantime, if you haven't already, you might want to update Fortnite to version 2.1.0.

Williamson also shared that certain areas of the map are about to become more clearly defined once the new update is applied. "The swamp feels swampier, the mountains feel more mountain-y". For a game that could have just as quickly been forgotten within weeks after launch, its Battle Royale mode has launched the game into the stratosphere and has been a mainstay among the most prominent titles out there.

Lead systems designer Eric Williamson talked about the main features of the upcoming update in a new developer video, revealing that additional points of interest were among the features set to be introduced. This is in addition to unspecified quality-of-life improvements that are described as a "work-in-progress".
