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

Battle Royale will get its first major update of 2018 next week.

Epic Games has outlined the changes coming to the Fortnite: Battle Royale map next week in a new developer update.

More specifically Eric highlighted a number of key changes from the new points of interest as well as more work on making the map feature more different biomes.

Of course, there will also be additional "quality of life improvements," though what exactly they remain a mystery.

You can check out the full vlog below or head to the Fortnite site. "The swamp feels swampier, the mountains feel more mountain-y". What are you most excited to see in next week's update?

We've also separated the map into more clearly-defined "biomes". 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.

Epic didn't detail what these are, but they will be listed in the patch notes once the update goes live.

According to Williamson, the Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update must happen since the island on which the 100 players are competing seems to have fewer points of interest in certain places than it should, especially around the western side of the map.
