Fortnite Update 1.000.029 Patch Notes (v17.00):

Info straight from Epic Games:

PC gets a new visual upgrade! Detailed here.

The Primal Season — and Makeshift weapons — will soon be extinct. Craft ‘em while you got ‘em. Downtime for Chapter 2 Season 7 begins at 2 AM ET (06:00 UTC).

With the launch of the new Season, please note that patch sizes will be larger than normal on all platforms.

In Season 7, we’re adding the ability to cancel your Shakedown of an opponent.

Hitting Reload or the same button/key you used to pick the opponent up will immediately drop them mid-shake, cancelling any accidental interrogations.

RETURN TO THE BLASTED BADLANDS VENTURE!

Get ready for a new Ventures Season, Commanders. The next Save the World Ventures Season sends us back to the Blasted Badlands!

Beginning June 19, 2021 at 8PM ET,  join your fellow Commanders in the Blasted Badlands and battle the Husks with the returning (and newly improved) Rage Meter modifier. Also to note, Venture Level rewards and experience gained has been updated to match previous recent Venture Seasons.

Rather than constantly draining your energy, this modifier now just prevents energy from regenerating on it’s own. Battle the Husks to refill your energy and then wreak havoc with your abilities.

Unchanged from the last Blasted Badlands Season, Rage Meter drastically reduces your ability cooldowns and increases their damage. Energy management is key here, Commanders! It’s wise to fill your energy bar before taking on the next wave of husks.

This Ventures Season is expected to conclude on September 4, 2021.
