Fortnite update 8.01 for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, and Xbox One is out now. Developer Epic Games has stated that it adds buried treasure to the map as well as the Slide Duos Limited Time Mode (LTM). In addition to this, there's a subtle gameplay tweak along with the Fortnite update 8.01, allowing players to slide down terrain without taking damage from 65 degrees to 75 degrees. Mobile players should breath a sigh of relief as this update also fixes a bug wherein pressing the fire button with two fingers causes the fire action to continuously loop. The Fortnite update 8.01 download size is around 150MB on iOS and roughly 837MB on Xbox One.
Fortnite season 8 is in full swing and with it, comes additions to the game's lore. The Ice King's castle had a powerful prisoner who's now free. This prisoner has brought fire and flame to Fortnite, which means that there's new treasure as well. You'll be slugging it out against other fighters, pirates, and ninjas for this treasure. There's a new weapon called Pirate Cannon in Fortnite season 8 along with new locations and the added challenges of playing on a map where lava can damage you.
