Epic Games has outlined the changes coming to the Fortnite: Battle Royale map next week in a new developer update.

Epic says that this Fortnite update should drop sometime next week, and if they follow their usual pattern, full patch notes will be available a couple of days before the update actually releases. "The second reason is, with all of the additional points of interest on the map update, we've got a lot more treasure chests, a lot more ammo crates, and we wanted to make sure that loot was distributed evenly, so that there isn't too much additional rare loot in the match".

"[Our map update includes] a bunch of new points of interest, including the city, and a bunch of new named areas on the west side of the map". The swamp feel "swampier", mountains feel "more mountainous", etc.

IPG Photonics Corporation (IPGP) Receives Average Recommendation of "Buy" from Analysts
The stock of IPG Photonics Corporation (NASDAQ:IPGP) has "Neutral" rating given on Thursday, April 28 by Dougherty & Company. ValuEngine downgraded shares of IPG Photonics from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Friday, December 1st.

Epic Games is also doubling down on themes for different regions of the map, explaining that the map will now be divided into different biomes, each with its own unique personality. Williams explained that this was being done not only because the special event was now over but also to improve the balance in the game, with the addition of new points of interest already adding a bunch more locations for you to find that elusive Legendary Scar in. The map is getting new spots to shake things up on the current map.

The Fortnite Battle Royale map update is due to go live next week. While all of this definitely sounds promising, hopefully the implementation of the new map update won't bring about any unforeseen server issues next week.
