Fortnite’s Survive the Storm update adds features and improves performance

A big storm is about to roll through the world of Fortnite! Available on August 29, the Survive the Storm update includes an all-new…you guessed it…Survive the Storm mode, special mutant storms with unique challenges and rewards, new weapons, new heroes, and much more. The threat is only here for a limited time, so players are encouraged to jump in to see if they can survive the storm and earn some exclusive loot.

For those wondering, the timited-time Storms have modifiers like enraged husks or limited health. Survive these Storms and players can earn some special loot. That’s not all though, the best addition has to be the weapon set. The Survive the Storm update adds the hydraulic weapon set. Scavenged from the industrial yards of Plankerton, and rebuilt into husk-destroying machines, these high-impact weapons can only be acquired by earning tickets as players complete mutant storms.

Well, now you might be wondering that’s all well and good but what about the game’s performance? Well, we got you covered. The update includes a host of performance improvements which should make shooting feel even smoother. BE sure to check out the update on August 29! If you haven’t played Fortnite in a while, this may be the time to jump back in.
