Fortnite’s Crafting Update Detailed

Published

on

An impressive new update is heading to Fortnite and Epic Games has a lot of gamers buzzing about what’s on the way in the crafting v. 3.0.0, which was initially delayed but is now back on track.

According to the latest blog update from Epic Games, here is what is heading to Fortnite:

Turbo Building
“Turbo Building” allows you to hold down primary fire and continuously place the selected building piece (Toggled in the Game options). Now you can “paint” building pieces into the world quickly. This will be very useful for defensively building walls around you and sprinting up ramps while building them simultaneously.

Automatic Material Swapping
“Auto Change Materials” will switch to another material when your current supply runs dry(this can be toggled in the Game options). In addition to “Turbo Building” this makes the building process fast and simple. It also allows for quick defensive structures from flanking with less input and worry about running out of a particular material.

Build Through Stuff
Sometimes it’s frustrating when your placement is blocked unexpectedly and you aren’t sure why. Currently, smaller objects like furniture and shrubs are destroyed when you build over them, but trees, rocks and vehicles can still get in the way. We’ve changed the building system to allow you place structures right through large objects, meaning you can now build pretty much anywhere at anytime!

NOTE: Player structures must still be supported by the terrain and other buildings. For example: A sky ramp that passes through a tree will still fall if the connection to the terrain or floor is destroyed.

Switching Building Pieces (Battle Royale only, for now)
Switching between building pieces can sometimes feel laggy or unpredictable, especially on controllers. To improve this, we’ve changed the network code so cycling through building pieces no longer requires a round trip to Epic’s servers. Initially this improvement will be Battle Royale only, but we’re working to bring it to Save the World!

Though the above changes are only coming to Battle Royale to begin with, it will be arriving later for their first game mode: Save the World. Haven’t checked that aspect of the title out yet? Now’s a great time because all editions of the game outside of the free Royale mode are half off for a limited time!


That’s not all as Epic Games has teased a John Wick Character Skin and a brand new weapon.

An Epic Games employee going by the name ‘arctyczyn’ responded to comments that the new character resembles movie character John Wick by saying: “The name’s Jason … Jason Wick. He has a particular set of skills” and also teasing more information about the character coming on Thursday.

Worm Game

Google has launched one final game for the Stadia console as a “goodbye” ahead of it’s official shutdown this year.

The game is “Worm Game” which Google says was “a humble title we used to test many of Stadia’s features, starting well before our 2019 public launch, right through 2022” and adding “It won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a LOT of time playing it, and we thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing, and for everything.”

The game is quite simple as players will be tasked with controlling a worm as it tried to eat fruit that appears on screen. As the fruit is eaten, the worm gets bigger, which is a lot like the retro game ‘Snake’, but with a lot more to it.

Enjoy.
