Epic Games ha diffuso sul proprio sito ufficiale novità sull’aggiornamento 2.4.2 di Fortnite, disponibile dalla giornata odierna.

Tra le novità dell’update, segnaliamo l’introduzione di nuovi oggetti a tema San Valentino per entrambe le modalità di gioco. Nel dettaglio, nella modalità Battle Royale sarà possibile ottenere due nuove skin Cupido e Orsetto rosa, oltre a una devastante Balestra dai colpi infiniti con cui eliminare i propri nemici all’insegna dello stealth. La modalità Salva il Mondo vedrà, invece, l’arrivo di una missione a tema San Valentino, ma al momento non sono stati diffusi ulteriori dettagli in merito.

Ecco di seguito la lista completa delle novità di questa patch (in inglese):
