Big Plans for Battle Royale to Bring New Social Features On Board & More -

Epic Games has a new blog post on the Fortnite site to lay out the first details for changes coming to Battle Royale. The team acknowledges that its social features are somewhat lacking and will be addressing that through the addition of simpler ways to game with friends and by connecting friends lists from "other social networks". 

In addition, Epic also admits that team killing is something that needs attention. The reporting system and analytical tools for finding team killers is being streamlined and tweaked to "weed out the worst offenders and long term would love to have the ability to pair you with players with good reputations".

Other items in the pipeline include:

  • a new shooting model, currently in testing, that will remove random bullet spread while aiming
  • inventory revamp with a new interface and simpler management task
  • post match stats will provide more feedback
  • updating maps with more unique points of interest
  • cosmetics to be added to gliders and adding new textures
  • audio improvements
  • new game mode - Limited Time coming this month "are temporary experiences with special conditions that provide new ways to play and allow us to run fun experiments".
  • optimizations
  • map streaming improvements
  • regional matchmaking
  • tweaked controls
  • leaderboards / stats
  • special 'season store'

Looking to the future, Epic has plans for more items and weapons, custom games, performance tweaks, badges / medals and more.
