The launch of Fortnite Chapter 2 wasn’t without a few hiccups. Epic has deployed a fix for several issues with a new patch. Here’s what they fixed.
No video game update is going to be perfect. Every gamer knows that. The player base collectively holds their breath with every patch, wondering if a game-breaking glitch is going to surface this time.
Fortnite Chapter 2 launched with several issues. There were severe FPS drops on PC, a strange zooming bug on consoles, a death zone outside of Frenzy Farm, and a list of other annoying problems like keybinds being completely reset when you log in for the first time.
Thankfully, Epic is one of the most diligent developers out there. One day after they released the biggest update in Fortnite history, they have a patch that fixes some of these problems.
So far, the Fortnite Status account has confirmed three issues that the 11.00.1 patch has resolved:
- Setting/keybind reset – if you’re playing your first game today, your settings will be untouched
- Incorrect achievements showing
- Screen appearing cropped/zoomed on consoles
This patch does not appear to address the FPS drop on PC nor the death zone outside of Frenzy. If you take a look at the Trello board, the latter doesn’t even appear to be on Epic’s radar right now.
Fast updates like this one are why we love Fortnite so much. Does Epic let some issues linger for a long time? Sure, but they work their asses off to make sure we are having the best possible experience on all platforms.
