What’s new in the Fortnite update?
This update adds in Preferred Item Slots, it allowing users to manage their inventories more effectively. The list of new fixes and additions is below:
– This update introduces Preferred Item Slots setting.
– Arena playlists will be disabled starting July 20 at 02:00 UTC. We plan to provide them available again after downtime has finished. But there may be a delay.
– Career statistics may stop updating shortly before downtime starts, but they should be accurate once downtime finishs.
– We have heard reports from users that the Deploy Alien Nanites anywhere other than Holly Hatchery mission is not tracking progress properly. We plan to auto-complete this Quest with the release of 3.23 (v17.20).
Preferred Item Slots are a huge change for Fortnite, with users now able to make a preset that will put items in certain places in their inventory. If you wish to have a sniper rifle at the start of your inventory, you can now pick to do so, helping you quick access to the weapons you use the most.
Additionally, Epic revealed that Bugha’s Late Game mode will roll out shortly following this new update. It’s a brand new competition held in honor of the 2019 World Cup Solo Champion that will enable users to compete for cash prizes from July 20 to July 28.
