Fortnite: Save The World Won't Be Going F2P This Year
Those waiting on the free-to-play launch of Fortnite: Save the World are going to have to wait a bit longer than expected. According to a post published on Epic Game's site this morning, the company has decided to push the F2P launch back to give themselves time to add new features, as well as rework systems and implement backend scaling that will allow them to handle the influx of players during the transition.
Included in the planned improvements are a reworked UI that should be easier for players to understand. The devs are reorganizing menu options, converting old UI tutorials, and adding a little pizzazz to the over-all look.
In addition, Epic announced an updated Hero System, designed to give players more flexibility when customizing their loadouts. The new system offers players more slots, and will eventually expand the variety of loadouts available to players.
Unfortunately, the post doesn't tell us when we can expect the F2P launch, but the full details on what to expect are available on the Epic Games site.
