Fortnite Season 4 patch notes v4.0

Fortnite has just received a big update from developer Epic Games, which brings the game up to version 4.0. This update is significant seeing as it is releasing alongside of season 4, which brings plenty of interesting new content to the table. This includes the likes of a new Save the World questline, gravity-defying Hop Rocks and much more.

Fortnite 4.0 Patch Notes

General

  • Input settings are now filtered based on game mode. ◦They’ve also been grouped by category (Combat, Building, Editing, etc.) to make it easier to search through them.
  • Added icons for the tabs at the top of the Settings screen.
  • Added “Ignore Gamepad Input” option to the Accessibility settings tab. ◦This setting can be helpful to players who use external programs to remap their controller input and need the game to ignore the controller input.

Gameplay

  • Structures on the starting island can now be destroyed. Not the Battle Bus, though.
  • Headshots are now prioritized when other body parts are in the way. ◦Incoming headshots (from above or straight on) will no longer be blocked by your character’s other body parts.
    • For example, a shot that hits your target’s hand will be able to penetrate through and hit their head if your aim was on point. You’ll be credited headshot damage instead of normal damage.
    • Headshots from below that are blocked by a body part (legs, torso, hands, shoulders, arms) will do normal damage, except for impacts very close to your character’s head.
    • This change affects all weapons, except for the Rocket Launcher and Grenade Launcher.
  • Slightly reduced the hitbox size of player hands.
  • Damage numbers are now visible when spectating a player.
  • Knocking a player off the island will award elimination credit like normal fall damage.
  • Fall distance is now shown in the elimination feed when a player is forced to fall by an opponent.
  • On the starting island, you can now see other players (and player-created structures) about three times further away than before.

This was all revealed over on the official Epic Games website, so be sure to click the link for even more details. A trailer announcing the launch of season 4 was also released, which you can view below.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
