The v4.4 Content Update is now live in Fortnite on all platforms including Microsoft’s Xbox One. This latest update adds a new stink bomb weapon and the new 8-Bit Demo hero skin who seems heavily inspired by Wreck-it-Ralph (see above image).
This latest Fortnite update also adds a new mode called Final Fight in Battle Royale that limits teams to 20 players and stops the storm shrinkage after the third circle. Here’s the full release notes.
Limited Time Mode: Final Fight: Teams of 20: Survive the countdown! The Storm Circles give players more room to hunt down opponents. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Victory Royale!
Final Fight plays similar to standard Battle Royale, but instead of the Storm circles closing all the way, the Storm stops after the 3rd circle. When the circles have finished closing in, the final countdown timer will begin. The remaining teams will battle it out until the timer expires. The team with the most players remaining at the end of the timer wins! In the event of a tie, the two (or more) teams tied for the lead win the match.
