Epic Games heeft Fortnite van een nieuwe update voorzien en het gaat om versie 2.48. Deze update weegt zo’n 4GB en brengt toch wel wat vernieuwingen met zich mee. Ongetwijfeld zullen ook dataminers weer wat vinden, want waarschijnlijk zitten hier ook de files in voor het aankomende Fortnite x Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker event dat op 14 december zal plaatsvinden.

Opvallend is dat het vanaf nu mogelijk is om split-screen Fortnite te spelen. Deze optie is nog wel in early access en zal nog goed gemonitord worden door de ontwikkelaar. Daarnaast zijn er wat bugs verholpen en krijgen ook de andere modi diverse aanpassingen, zoals je hieronder kunt zien.
