Posted on by Ryan


Epic Games have released the Season 3 Battle Pass for their wildly popular game Fortnite.

This new update adds 60 FPS for all console platforms, a new orchestral score, a Hoverboard (!!) for “Save the World” (PvE), and other in-game rewards.

Fortnite is available for PC, Mac, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.You can view the full patch notes and announcement trailer down below…


  • Major Improvements to Building!
    • Players can now build structures just about anywhere, even through trees, rocks and cars.
      • This allows you more freedom when building (no more pesky trees stopping your ramps).
      • Structural support still works the same way — only terrain or other buildings will support your built structures, not objects you build through.
    • If you run out of materials while building, you’ll now automatically switch to the next material with available resources.
      • You can turn this feature off with the “Auto Material Change” option in the Game Settings menu.
    • You can now continuously place the selected building piece by holding down the Primary Fire button.
      • You can turn this feature off with the “Turbo Building” option in the Game Settings menu.
    • Battle Royale: Switching between building pieces is now much smoother, especially using console controls or under non-ideal network conditions.
  • New Orchestral Music Score!
    • The score was created by film composer Marco Beltrami (Logan, The Hurt Locker, etc.) and Pinar Toprak (Krypton TV series, additional composition for the Justice League film, etc.). The hour long score was recorded in Nashville with an amazing orchestra.
    • Save the World: All music has been updated with an entirely new soundtrack.
    • Battle Royale: The Login, Launch, and Lobby menus have updated remixes from the new score.
  • Added Color Blind Option
    • This can be found in the new “Accessibility” tab in the game’s options.
    • There’s a strength indicator so that you can find a level that works best for you.
    • This feature is still in development. We’d love to hear your feedback, especially if you’re unable to find a level that makes the colors better for you.
      • Holding down the “Interact/Use” button when approaching a chest or downed ally will now automatically perform the action once in range.
        • This also works when reviving teammates.
      • Messaging now displays when party functionality has degraded due to server issues.
        • This includes being able to join parties and send invitations.
      • Easy Anti-Cheat protection added to Mac.
      • Improved the look & feel of the game window title bar, buttons and borders on Windows.

      Bug Fixes

      • Fixed Auto-Run being cancelled when opening the map or inventory screens.
      • Inventory icons should no longer get stuck in a selected state after being dragged out of the inventory.
      • Improved CPU performance when activating overlaps, such as traps or triggers.
      • Optimized grass rendering to improve overall frame rate.
      • Fixed an issue where incorrect numbers could be shown if you enabled the “Show Net Stats” HUD option.


      • Microphones connected to controllers will be muted when changing any audio volume.
