Epic Games has just released a brand-new update for Fortnite. It was confirmed yesterday by them that the new update will be released today, and it seems like it’s finally here. The servers went down a few hours ago for maintenance, but they are now back up meaning that you can now jump in the game to enjoy the new content.

The latest update of Fortnite basically adds a new limited time mode along with some new weapons. In addition to this, it also brings fixes for various issues which were present in the game.

New Air Royale Game Mode

The update basically adds a new Limited Time Air Royale mode in the game, which brings back the X-4 Stormwing plane. For those who don’t know, Fortnite data miners also leaked some information a while ago which hinted that the X-4 Storming planes are going to be back in the game. The new Air Royale mode features only a Duo mode, meaning that you cannot jump into it alone.

What the New Air Royale Mode Is

You basically have to defeat all the other planes and become the last plane standing to win the match. In addition to this, you will be able to stay in the battle until you are taken down three times. To make things interesting, you can also increase your plane count by stealing a plane of your enemy. Players can also unlock new Wraps for their planes by completing the challenges offered during this Limited Time Mode.

In addition to this, players will have to remain careful while flying planes. If you touch the ground, then you will instantly get eliminated. Not only this, but if you park your plane on the ground for more than a few seconds, it will explode. Loot chests will also fall from the sky, and players will be able to upgrade their guns and their planes through them.

New Weapons

In addition to the new game mode, the developers have also decided to add some new Epic and Legendary Infantry Rifles in the game. Fans have been waiting for these new weapons to arrive since they were discovered in the game’s files some time ago. For those wondering, these new guns can be found in Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Floor Loot.

The new update also brings a few changes to the gameplay. To start with, players will be now able to pet dogs and other animals. In addition to this, the Battle Pass Friend XP bonus has also been upgraded, something which players are going to love for sure. Through this, players will be able to get larger XP boost if they have one or more friends in their party.

In any case, the new update has surely added some amazing new content in the game. Players are now eagerly waiting to see what Epic will add further in the game through the future updates.
