What Would Make Fortnite Better?
Fortnite: Battle Royale is a household name at this point; whether you keep up with the world of games or pay no mind to the industry, you’ve likely heard the name Fortnite (or Fork Knife). Rarely do we see a game explode to this level of popularity, but developer Epic Games struck at the right time with its version of the last-person-standing game mode. Players scavenge a huge map for not only weapons and health items, but also raw materials to build structures. Fortnite finds inspiration from the likes of Minecraft and throws construction into the mix, so even if you get caught in the middle of a field, you’re not a sitting duck as long as you have the necessary resources and wit to put a protective fort together.
With Season 5 right around the corner (kicking off June 12), exciting additions are bound to come to the game. As of now, there appears to be tears or cracks in the sky of the battle royale map; although it’s not clear what this means, this is almost certainly tied to what’s in store for Season 5. Could it lead to a new map? Does this imply dramatic changes to the current map? Is the next theme going involve some inter-dimensional phenomena? We’ll find out soon enough, but it also has us thinking about changes we’d like to see in Fortnite. Season 4 launched with a superhero theme and a number of skins to go along with it. We even had the Marvel villain Thanos make a guest appearance as a playable character with a slew of unique abilities. In other words, anything can happen.
Tens of millions of people have played Fortnite, and for good reason: it’s a great game. It’s a ton of fun to outlast and eliminate enemy squads with a group of friends or by yourself. In our Fortnite: Battle Royale review, we stated, “Although a few shortcomings in the map design eventually surface and fatigue in looting can set in, Fortnite rarely fails at challenging you in unexpected ways, resulting in something more than just another typical last-person-standing shooter.”
Epic has been committed to adding new features to keep the game fresh and players interested. Weekly challenges provide different objectives to complete aside from winning matches. Limited time modes have also helped change up the traditional formula by making slight twists to the gameplay. However, there are still some aspects of the game that can be improved. With Epic so responsive to feedback, we compiled a list of changes we’d like to see come to Fortnite: Battle Royale.
