Epic Games has revealed a new limited time mode coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale tonight at The Game Awards. While these updates have been well-received, some fans are still waiting to see cross-play added back to Fortnite after it was removed earlier this year.
Fortnite Battle Royale has become a much-needed twist on the Battle Royale formula established by the likes of PUBG, with it presenting a more casual approach to the genre that has seen it become a big hit on Twitch. This continued development displays why Fortnite was nominated for the best multiplayer title of 2017 alongside COD: World War II, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8, Destiny 2, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Epic has also stated that it's found a way to reduce the size of future patches for Fortnite, so update v1.1.0 should be the last one that's aproximately 10 GB.
