Epic's increasingly popular Fortnite: Battle Royale is now set up to facilitate shenanigans between a maximum of 100 players, but that may change in the future.
Following its most recent update, Fortnite's next set of challenges have gone live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile. As players know, completing Battle Pass Challenges allows gamers to move up the tiers and earn new gear. Fortnite itself has a 50v50 game mode that's previewed in the trailer above, a mode that Epic Games recently discussed while explaining how it's being improved.
Well since Epic Games switched up their release cycle and added new features, more ways of content leaking has appeared. With such inventive game modes already being introduced in several battle royale games, "Fornite" would certainly be following suit in this regard.
In the interview, Williamson also said the development team had a discussion on how they could more closely integrate the PvP and PvE modes.
While most of the technical problems have been resolved by Epic Games, the company announced that the servers should be back to normal very soon.
"It's been no secret that over the past 24 hours we've been experiencing issues with our services that have prevented many of you from playing Battle Royale and Save the World". One ambitious game called Mavericks: Proving Grounds has plans to take the player count much higher by allowing 1,000 players into each map. Perhaps if Epic does find a way to integrate the two modes, it will be a way for the developer to meet players in the middle.
However Epic Games has considered raising the max player count, it won't happen anytime soon, as Williamson said.
Once all seven Fortnite Week 9 challenges have been completed, and the rewards have been received, it'll be time to wait for next week's reset, where the Fortnite Week 10 challenges will be waiting for you! In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, design lead Eric Williamson has talked positively about the idea of increasing the player cap per match.
