However, the update coming next week will contain one of the largest changes to the game yet, bringing with it a revamped map containing numerous new locations for players to drop in for their bout of looting and scooting. Key to this goal are points of interest that include more named areas in the city and more defined locations within it.

Furthermore, Williamson says that Fortnite's different "biomes" in Battle Royale have been divided up in a way to have them be more distinguishable from one another. The quick two-minute development update goes over some high level changes you can expect to see when the Fortnite update goes live, with much more detailed patch notes expected to come sometime next week. Cities will be more cramped, swamps will be swampier and mountainous areas will have rougher terrain. The map is getting new spots to shake things up on the current map.

Last but not least, the Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update will remove the existent Christmas trees along with the chests that were placed beside them. "The second reason is, with all of the additional points of interest on the map update, we've got a lot more treasure chests, a lot more ammo crates, and we wanted to make sure that loot was distributed evenly, so that there isn't too much additional rare loot in the match". "Really, the different areas of the map feel more unique", he explained.

With smaller additions of guns, items, and special modes coinciding with these weekly updates, the game has received a steady stream of content since its release.
