New Fortnite update brings 60FPS, hoverboards and building improvements to PS4 shooter

Plus info on Season 3 which is kicking off on PS4, get all the details below

We’re kicking off Season 3 of Fortnite Battle Royale this week, and along with it our new Battle Pass! In addition to the Battle Pass, we have some awesome features coming in, a movement tool in Save the World, and improvements to how you build in Battle Royale!

Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite in 60 FPS

The v.3.0.0 update brings a new 60 FPS mode for PS4 and PS4 Pro. You’ll be able to pick up those Victory Royales with more clarity than ever before with buttery smooth framerates. If the highest-quality graphics are still your preference, you can toggle the 60 FPS mode at any time for improved visuals instead. We plan to continue work on the mode and improve it over time so definitely give us your feedback!

Better building

Building is vital to your survival in Battle Royale, so we want to make it feel as good as possible. Find a tiresome tree in your way? No problem, now you can build right through it and continue on your way to a Victory Royale. Additionally, with the Turbo Build mode and Material Swapping you can keep building those stairs as you sprint ‘n shoot and if you run out of wood the brick or metal (whatever is available) will swap right in!

Save the World updates

Fans of our Save the World mode also get a slew of new content. Cruise around the storm in style with the brand-new Hoverboard, a new way to traverse the map. No need to use stamina as you surf to your quest objectives and complete them quicker than before. The v.3.0.0 update also brings in a new Lunar New Year questline with all new Heroes and weapons.

P.S. If you’re feeling Heroic, I’d give a listen to the newly overhauled orchestral Save the World music. There may even be a little in Battle Royale as well.

New to the Battle Pass? It’s a way to get exclusive loot by playing Fortnite, and then earn or buy tiers to unlock even more rewards!

When you buy the Season 3 Battle Pass, you’ll instantly unlock a batch of great in-game rewards including the new Mission Specialist Outfit! As you play during the season, you unlock a series of reward tiers. 100 tiers, 100 rewards. The more you play, the more you’ll unlock.

Fortnite Season 3

So what’s different from the Season 2 Battle Pass? There are now 30 more tiers in Season 3 (100 total), and with more tiers comes more loot. Even though we added 30 tiers, you’ll still be able to complete the Season 3 Battle Pass in the same amount of time as the Season 2 Battle Pass (typically 75-150 hours). Don’t have the time? You can always purchase tiers for 150 V-Bucks each.

See you in Fortnite!

Love the BR mode. Just bought the save the world can’t wait to try it later tonight.

Just wondering if this 60FPS mode is for battle royal only? I just started save the world but I can’t seem to see any option for 60fps mode? I can see uncap FPS but had that not been an option for a while now?

Hoverboards and a ‘John Wick’ outfit, nice.

I wonder if the problems with Save the world has been fixed. I may try see later. For way too long there have been lag spikes whenever it turns day, when people joins and stuff like that. Countless of times people have walked out the edges and felt into the depths. Also there have been several hud/gui problems.

It has been a bit of a sad time for STW players as they have seen BR getting more and more fixes and updates while the problems in the paid gamemode persists. I know BattlePass cost money but it’s optional. Anyway still like the events in STW that’s the reason why I played it, the moment you get to CV it get’s stale, the missions are just the same “Clear x amount of y missions” no reason.

Just my thoughts (inb4 BR players getting angry)
