Fortnite Update Adds New Limited Time Mode Called “Steady Storm”; Patch Notes Inside

Players of Fortnite will be stirring up this morning to find a laundry list of changes and enhancements to the ever-popular shooter. Together with the previously leaked double barrel shotgun, version 5.20 of Fortnite will include a Limited Time Mode called “Steady Storm,” and it’s exactly what it seems like.

Like many battle royale games, Fortnite has a closing circle, also referred to as this “storm. ” But in Steady Storm, rather than closing after a particular quantity of time, providing players to get into a designated secure zonethe storm is continually closing during the match, with no safe zones whatsoever. Players might have to be aware of the inconsistent ring, which makes for a few feverish rounds.

Also contained in the spot are a couple of additions to the co-operative Save the World Section of the game: Ragnarok has made the leap from a Battle Royale skin to some Mythic Outlander Hero in Save the World, and new Horde Challenges have been added.

Check out the entire patch notes below.
