Epic teases upcoming Fortnite Battle Royale changes in a new developer video

Fortnite BR Adds Funny Dance Party Grenade

This is in addition to unspecified quality-of-life improvements that are described as a "work-in-progress".

The map update itself will add new POIs and also named areas on the west side of the map, which Eric said is now "a little bit light on points of interest".

As of late, Fortnite's Battle Royale mode has been on a roll with updates, with the latest patch adding a new Campfire item that heals, a change to the Boogie Bomb, and a much-needed fix to a major bug in the game. That means the swamp will be "swampier", and the mountains will be more "mountainy".

With the end of the holiday event, the Christmas trees and associated treasures will also naturally be disappearing, and the team hopes the new treasure chests that will be populating the map alongside the new points of interest will help to fill out the loot drops in a more even way.

Durbin: Trump said 'shithole' repeatedly, comments were 'vile, racist'
Uganda's state minister for worldwide relations, Henry Okello Oryem, called Trump's remarks "unfortunate and regrettable". During the meeting, according to several sources, Trump was flabbergasted by the inclusion of these countries in the deal.

The update will be huge and it will add many changes to the "Fortnite" Battle Royale map.

According to the game developer, the new city will have many chests and ammo boxes, so there is no doubt that this will be one of the hottest drop zones, especially in the first few weeks after the update. Another reason for their removal is due to the newly expanded map having a lot of new places to find loot.

Epic Games is also doubling down on themes for different regions of the map, explaining that the map will now be divided into different biomes, each with its own unique personality.

Fortnite is available now in early access on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with its full launch occurring at some point in 2018.
