Epic Games has outlined the changes coming to the Fortnite: Battle Royale map next week in a new developer update. Epic Games' representative Erik Williamson shared some information about the upcoming Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update which will bring new areas to the original map as well as different biomes.

The 3 new locations, 1 being a city, will be added to the West-side of the map, helping to fill the empty void and even the map out, providing more points of interest, as explained in the below video.

As lead systems engineer Eric Williams explains in a new video posted on the game's YouTube channel, seen below, the biggest attraction of the new map will be a whole new city area for players to explore.

Did Google Assistant win CES 2018?
Not a lot is known about the specs, but Google has confirmed the smart display will run on the Qualcomm SD624 Home Hub Platform. They are due out in the USA this summer, but we don't know when they are coming to the United Kingdom or what prices will be.

To be more specific, the update is going to make the areas known as biomes more unique.

Williamson also confirmed that the Christmas trees and the chests underneath them will be leaving the game in the next update as well. We felt [the west] was a little bit light on points of interest, so we wanted to even the island out and make it feel like there were more locations to drop into.

The map-focused update is expected to arrive soon.

"I think Stoke City fans would see Martin O'Neill as a pragmatic appointment, I wouldn't say it would generate too much excitement, but fans would ultimately get behind him".

The new feature is known as the NVIDIA ShadowPlay Highlights, and with it, certain plays will be automatically saved depending on a player's preference.

Fortnite's Battle Royale mode, for all the controversy that initially surrounded it, has found a solid footing within the genre.
