Rather,"Fortnite" manufacturer Epic Games says it's exploring ways to evolve the gameplay of Battle Royale so the last couple of moments of every match,"do not boil down to'simply construct lol'." That's a direct quote, mind you.
As things are right now, players that reach the end of a given match in"Fortnite" are likely to experience rockets, endless building, and shotguns. "The superiority of shotguns, rockets, and uncapped construction are such a dominant play fashion in the final circle that many other approaches have been drowned out," the post from Epic Games says.
And when? That's not apparent. "We are exploring modifications to weapon balance and resource economy, such as e.g. resource caps," the post states, below the"Recent & Upcoming Changes" section. Anticipate those changes"within the next few weeks."
Epic is suggesting some major changes to the core of"Fortnite" -- with over 125 million people enjoying the game any little change impacts a slew of people. One very notable member of the huge audience is Tyler"Ninja" Blevins, who makes his living flowing"Fortnite" online.
And Blevins isn't happy with the potential for resource caps. "You're just gont possess a potential scenario in which a lousy player is just spraying [shooting] you, and you use up all your materials, and then you die. That might make a fantastic player rage," he explained on a stream this week. "I took the opportunity to farm 999 timber, by golly I wan na na use it!"
Given the huge popularity of Battle Royale matches generally -- from"Fortnite" into"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and beyond -- it is reasonable that Epic wishes to continue evolving its game. In case"Fortnite" stays the exact same forever, it dangers boring players and eventually losing themif"Fortnite" changes too much, Fortnite Items risks alienating gamers and eventually losing them. We'll see how it plays out in the coming weeks as Epic implements shifts for"Fortnite."
