On February 11, Epic Games gave players sneak peek into what to expect from the upcoming patch.

These changes were universally praised by prominent members of the community so it’s clear Fortnite was listening to the community.

This patch will be adding in new features for Fortnite players on mobile and Switch as well so fans there are being taken care of.
