In a “State of Development” post, Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced that the game’s Save the World mode (which to this point has cost money) will not become free to play this year as was originally planned.
The delay is happening because Epic wants to keep working on the mode, including “a broad set of features, reworks, and backend system scaling” before it makes the change.
In other Save the World mode news, the hero system is being updated – upping the number of hero slots from three to six – and more customizable loadouts are also being worked on. Epic says it have more details on these changes in the future.
Finally, the State of Development blog post discusses an investment refund feature, this year’s Fortnitemares event (where you can get Brainiac Jonesy and Skull Ranger Ramirez for free), and discounts on Founder’s packs. Click on the source link below for more info.
