Dopo averlo annunciato qualche giorno fa, nella giornata di ieri Epic Games ha finalmente rilasciato un nuovo aggiornamento dedicato a Fortnite, che porta il titolo alla versione 3.3.0.

La novità più rilevante dell’update è sicuramente l’aggiunta del C4, una nuova arma di distruzione che garantisce un pizzico di tatticismo in più alla modalità Battle Royale. Diamo un’occhiata ai possibili utilizzi:

Disponibili, inoltre, dei piccoli lama di supporto sparsi per la mappa che, al loro ritrovamento, garantiranno una buona dose di munizioni, trappole e materiali utili per avere la meglio sui propri avversari. Immancabile, infine, la solita correzione di bug e glitch segnalati dagli utenti nell’ultimo periodo.
