Epic Games announces
chapter 2 of Fortnite
is expected to get
underway on February 20th. They say this will follow the release of version
11.50 of the survival/battle royale game early next month. They say this will
also mark the game's move to the Chaos physics system in the Unreal engine, so
they will be conducting some testing to make sure this doesn't change the feel
of the game too much. Here's the announcement, which includes some redactions,
as they are still playing part of this close to the vest:
the release of the 11.50 update in early February, Fortnite will be moving to
Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system. At launch, the goal is to ensure that
Fortnite still feels like Fortnite. Along the way there will be some bumps, so
we’re starting tests with a small group of players. We’ll also closely monitor
feedback and make improvements over time.
With the addition of the 11.50 update, Chapter 2 - Season 2 is now expected to
launch Thursday, February 20. Chapter 2 - Season 2 will feature
. We can’t brief you on all of next Season’s secrets just yet...
Before the Season ends, we’ll have additional Overtime Challenges and a new
two-week event. Stay tuned to Fortnite social channels for more details!
