Fortnite update 3.0.0 adds extensive building improvements

Fortnite's Season 3 Battle Pass is space-themed, has 100 tiers

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple of days, then you would know that "Fortnite: Battle Royale" just recently had an update that was met with nothing but controversy from fans.

"Music is so important in setting the tone for the players' emotional experience, so it was extremely important for us to have a high quality score for Fortnite", said Epic Games creative director Darren Sugg to Glixel.

Players will be taken to the furthest regions of the galaxy this time with space-themed cosmetics. Focused on building improvements for the most part, loads of changes befall both Battle Royale and its Save the World counterpart. Just be sure to keep checking in and hoping for the best, otherwise, get your Season 3 Battle Pass and hop on the grind.

There will be 30 new tiers set to be added, bringing its total to 100 for Season 3. It's an impressive bit of kit, which Epic Games describes as being "big", "loud", and "packs a punch". This content will be distributed throughout the year as you play and reach new tiers of items, but those who purchase the pass will be able to access certain items right away.

Meanwhile, players will have the option to buy their way up to finishing the tiers and acquiring the in-game upgrades for the third season.

"Turbo Building" will technically let players paint structures with primary fire button held down. Another feature, called "Automobile Change Materials", provides the game permission to use another, more valuable construction resource automatically once you run out. It also allows for quick defensive structures from flanking with less input and worry about running out of a particular material.

The competitive Battle Royale component of "Fortnite" has grown significantly since its launch in September.

NOTE: Player structures must still be supported by the terrain and other buildings. It changes Fortnite's network code to make it so picking your building piece doesn't have to go through Epic's servers, which should make it more responsive.
