Fortnite recently released a new update – The v11.50 update brought with it some much needed bug fixes related to FPS drops and in-game performance which a lot of players were very happy with. Aside from the bug fixes, Epic Games also announced the start of their Winterfest event where players can get a ton of free presents straight from the Fortnite Team. They also moved Playground under the Creative mode so be sure to check it out there. The last thing is one of the most interesting new additions to the game, the new Fortnite Battle Lab. The Battle Lab allows players to create their own games and invite their friends to play in it. It’s definitely an interesting concept and can definitely promote creativity among players.
Playground was probably moved to Creative since it features a more sandbox and free environment where players can easily collect materials and items, and simply practice their skill inside the Fortnite map. Another reason why it was moved was probably to make way for the new Battle Lab mode. The new Battle Lab mode is a new customizable mode that allows you to battle it out with up to 15 of your friends on your own private battle royal island. You can finally find out who the best among the rest is and who will be the last one standing. Battle lab allows you to create and island where you can choose from different Limited Time Mode loot pool and create your very own mode by messing with gravity or fall damage. You can also choose to match make with other players, though you can only play with the default settings. Battle Lab enables players to experience Fortnite in entirely new ways, forcing players to adjust and think carefully before doing any moves. You set the rules, you play the game you want it to be played.
