PlayStation 5 players rejoice, as Epic Games has now released the Fortnite update 1.000.056 patch this February 15, and this one is for major changes included in the v19.30 patch! To find out what’s new, as well as everything datamined in the latest patch, check out the full release notes below.

Fortnite Update 1.000.056 Patch Notes | Fortnite Update 19.30 Patch Notes:

Update: Epic Games has released the official list of new content and tweaks!

GYRO AND FLICK STICK – MORE CONTROLLER OPTIONS!Made in collaboration with input specialist and flick stick creator Julian “Jibb” Smart, we’ve added optional gyro controls to Fortnite on gyro-supported platforms. And flick stick too!Fortnite Gyro ControlsFortnite on Nintendo Switch and Android had gyro-based motion controls before the release of v19.30, but this update brings more robust gyro controls to Fortnite on these two platforms plus PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

With gyro controls, you control the camera by turning the controller. Enable or disable gyro controls in Fortnite by going to the “Touch and Motion” tab of the settings. Gyro controls can offer more precision than standard stick aiming – but don’t have to replace it entirely. (With flick stick, for example, pointing the right stick moves the camera quickly in its direction.) For more info on gyro, watch Jibb’s video below and read our Gyro and Flick Stick blog post!

Plan to turn on gyro next time you play? Our blog post linked above has tips for new and experienced gyro players.

GAME MODE SELECT SCREEN REMOVED

With v19.30, we’ve removed the initial game screen (which appeared on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC) where players would select either Save the World, Battle Royale, or Creative. You’ll now boot up directly into the Lobby, ready to join the party and explore Fortnite!

What does this mean for Save the World and Creative? You can now find both modes via the “Discover” screen, accessible by clicking on the “CHANGE” button above “PLAY!” See our Loading into the Lobby blog post for more information.

COMPETITIVE NOTES

  • Removed Armored Walls from Supply Drop loot in competitive playlists.

MAJOR BUG FIXES

  • Fixed an issue involving some players only having two Tent slots available, as opposed to the intended three.
  • Fixed an issue on mobile involving build pieces not being placed after players double-tapped the associated icon.
  • Fixed an issue — occurring in competitive playlists only — involving Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters dropping from eliminated players with the full 20 uses even if they didn’t have the full 20 before the player was eliminated.

Currently, the official Fortnite Trello board has not updated to reflect the changes in v19.30! Once the list of fixes is out, we’ll update the post. We’re also expecting Epic to release the official patch notes which the devs have been doing the past few title updates.

In the meantime, here are the top issues as of now for Fortnite Battle Royale:

  • Some players on PC, Xbox or Playstation may find they only have two slots available instead of three
  • Some players will find that after completing the quest “Get Eliminations with an Assault Rifle” it remains in the quest log.
  • Spiderman’s Web Shooters will restock to the full 20 uses when dropped from eliminated players in competitive playlists only.
  • In the air, players are unable to use movement keys while piloting the Quadcrasher.
  • When using Performance Mode players may find the tree leaves have a lower resolution than intended

 

Fortnite v19.30 Datamined Info:

We’ll update this post accordingly once the full patch notes are out and if there are any more datamined content discovered.
