Fortnite Battle Royale to Get a New City, Underground Mine & More In Next Week’s Update

Epic Games has provided a tease of what’s to come in next week’s Fortnite update. Players who boot up the game will see a “New Updates” popup. Two of three notifications show off the newly-added Cozy Campfire trap and Nvidia ShadowPlay Highlights functionality. The third notification, however, offers a preview of what’s to come.

It reads:

New City & Points of Interest (Coming Soon)

Discover a new city, underground mine and more in next week’s update.

Fortnite Battle Royale to Get a New City, Underground Mine & More In Next Week’s Update

So that’s the new content players can expect for next week!

If you missed this week’s Fortnite Battle Royale patch notes, let me break them down for you:

WEAPONS

The Boogie Bomb dance effect is now removed upon taking any damage. We will continue to monitor and iterate on this item’s functionality.
Changed the Boogie Bomb rarity to blue/rare to more accurately represent its true rarity.

GAMEPLAY

Fixed an issue which caused players to pass through their recently built and edited structures.

Fixed an issue which allowed sniper bullets to pass through players without applying any damage.

Fixed an animation issue caused by entering the DBNO state while in the air.

AUDIO

Increased the audible range of enemy footsteps, as well as their overall volume.

We’re aware of an issue causing footsteps to sometimes play at irregular intervals when offscreen. We’re working on a fix now, expect it next update.
Enemy footsteps are easier to hear when performing certain actions such as building, shooting, or collecting resources.

Fixed an issue which caused sniper bullet impact sounds to trigger more than once per shot.

Fixed the phantom bullet sounds that are sometimes heard throughout a match.

Adjusted the volume of the AC/DC Pickaxe.

Reduced the volume of the drone that teleports player out of each match.

UI

Fixed an issue which caused the “Push to Talk” setting to disappear from the Battle Royale settings when restoring default settings in Save the World.

Shortened a few Daily Challenge descriptions which would run off the screen in a few languages.

Daily challenge rewards are automatically collected if another challenge is completed in the same category.

For instance, if you complete a Battle Pass daily challenge but do not “collect” the reward, the reward will automatically be collected upon completing the next Battle Pass daily challenge.

GENERAL

Fortnite Battle Royale now supports NVIDIA ShadowPlay highlights on PC.
Fixed a rare Battle Royale server crash.

Are you looking forward to exploring a new city and underground mine? Let us know.

In other Fortnite news, Epic Games is blaming the CPU “Meltdown” flaw for the game’s downtime, the developer has acknowledged that some players are having trouble logging into their account, and the previous patch introduced a new pistol.
