With a new season comes a new update. The 11.50 will be released in early February and will also include a transition from the game’s original engine to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system. Epic Games have also explained that there may be ” some bumps” so the company is also testing the engine using small groups of players. It also appears that Epic Games is also letting some players try out the new engine before they release it in February. The company stated that “At launch, the goal is to ensure that Fortnite still feels like Fortnite. Along the way there will be some bumps, so we’re starting tests with a small group of players. We’ll also closely monitor feedback and make improvements over time.”
Beyond the new season and the engine transition, the announcement also stated that before Chapter 1 Season 1 is over, the company intends to add more Overtime Challenges as well as a two-week event. No other details were revealed regarding these challenges and events but they hinted that players would be given the details on their social channels soon.
