Fortnite Battle Royale talks Map Update in new video

Thankfully, Xbox Live support now indicates that all services are up and running as per usual, so those who were experiencing problems with PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale yesterday should hopefully be able to jump back into the games.

This would represent the first meaty developer update to the game of 2018.

More specifically Eric highlighted a number of key changes from the new points of interest as well as more work on making the map feature more different biomes.

With the additional points of interest, Epic wanted to make sure that loot was evenly spread out, so the event trees and treasure chests will be removed in the interest of this new update.

President Trump says 'DACA is probably dead'
Perdue said that "the potential is there" for a deal to protect the "Dreamers" but that Democrats needed to get serious. Trump last week rejected an immigration deal drafted by a bipartisan group of senators.

Le'Veon Bell would consider retiring if franchise tagged
If he gets tagged and doesn't get to test free agency, then things might get sticky. "I'm trying to win a super bowl", he wrote. Teams can tag a player between February 20 and March 6, after which they would have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal.

Gold jumps on report China may slow US Treasury buys
ASIA'S DAY: Japan's Nikkei 225 fell 0.3 percent to 23,710.43 and South Korea's Kospi retreated 0.5 percent to 2,487.91. The report suggests that China feels US debt is becoming less attractive when compared to other types of investments.

"[Our map update includes] a bunch of new points of interest, including the city, and a bunch of new named areas on the west side of the map".

We've also separated the map into more clearly-defined 'biomes.' The swamp feels swampier, the mountains feel more mountain-ey...really, the different areas of the map feel more unique. A motel and a junkheap called the Boneyard are among the new areas displayed in the video. Williamson has already revealed two of those, the swamps and the mountains.

As announced on the game's official forum, friendly fire was disabled "in an attempt to reduce team killing in Fortnite Battle Royale".

More "quality of life" improvements are also coming, but the update's not specific on what form those will take in the short term.
