New Physics Engine
Epic Games recently shared a blog post revealing Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2’s release date, as well as some massive news regarding Fortnite's shift to a new physics engine in early February.
In a blog post from the Fortnite Team, they share the news that Fortnite will be moving to a new physics engine in the coming weeks.
CHANGE IS COMING: This is the first time Fortnite has seen a major engine update since it launched
The post said:
“Beginning with the release of the 11.50 update in early February, Fortnite will be moving to Unreal Engine’s Chaos Physics Engine.”
There will undoubtedly be some issues when the change is first implemented, but it will be “closely monitoring feedback and making improvements over time.”
ASHES TO ASHES: Buildings will now crumble away, rather than just vanishing when destroyed
Furthermore, switching to the "Chaos physics engine" allows a build to collapse if it gets shot or exploded, rather than just disappearing.
This is something that Fortnite players have been calling out for, so it's great to see the development team listening to the demands of the community.
NINJA'S HYPER - Who will we see next get an Icon skin?
Epic Games recently announced their new Icon Series and with the release of the Ninja skin and other cosmetic items into the item shop.
Be on the lookout for more creators getting their own personalized skin in Fortnite. Popular streamers such as Tfue, Dr Lupo and TimTheTatman could be getting their own skins in Fortnite soon!
