Fortnite: Battle Royale has faced a myriad of technical issues since the launch of its map redesign, with the latest issues forcing some systemic backtracking.
Fortnite‘s update 2.4.0 was slated to launch yesterday, but various bugs delayed its launch to allow for time to deal with them. The developer released a statement on Reddit assuring fans that the issues are being addressed, although it is taking longer than anticipated.
“We hear your concerns regarding bugs that you are experiencing since V.2.3.0, especially those regarding building,” Epic wrote. “It’s taking us longer than expected to fix these issues and we’re working through some major ones. If we’re unable to fix them today the v2.4.0 release will be delayed. Once we have a better idea of when the patch will arrive we’ll update everyone.”
One of the game’s primarily afflicted areas is the building system, facing issues such as the game building structures other than the one selected. Epic’s solution will be to temporarily revert the game’s building system to the 2.2.0 version while the developer searches for a more permanent fix.
“In order to help make building feel better we’ll be reverting to the building bar system that was present in V.2.2.0. We intend on finding a more permanent fix to make building and item selection feel more crisp in the future. We’ve also added some tools to help us better diagnose in-game issues when new bugs do arise.”
The revert will launch with update 2.4.0, whenever it finally drops. Fortnite players were recently offered content compensation for the game’s previous issues, so it seems a safe bet that fans can expect some perks for dealing with these latest obstacles as well.
