Fortnite released a client patch aimed at addressing the issues related to Battle Royale Replays and Save the World localization last Friday. There was no downtime associated with the update, which means that there were no major gameplay changes.

Fortnite released patch 9.10 last week, which increased the loot rate at randomly selected areas on the map. These Hot Spots appear in gold text on the map and players who shoot down the Loot Carriers that appear at the spots get the chance to obtain high quality weapons.

Weapon changes in 9.10 include lowering the drop count of Shadow Bombs to two from three. The reason is due to a lot of late-game use. The team at Fortnite wanted to encourage the idea of risk versus reward for those planning to pick up the item. Meanwhile the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle has been unvaulted.

The update also revealed the Limited Time Mode rotation, which includes Sniper Shootout Duos, Unvaulted Squads, and Close Encounters Squad.

Patch 9.10 introduced the Fortnite x Jordan collaboration to Fortnite Creative. Inspired by New York City, the Downtown Drop LTM by Jordan features artists such as NotNellaf & Tollmolia. With the Haunted Hills theme, players are now able to create their own personal eerie islands.

Under Fortnite Save the World, the patch introduces Space Rocks, the newest war games simulation. In this simulation, meteors rain on the base, and players need to blast them out of the sky or build shelter for protection.

More details of Patch 9.10 can be viewed here.

Fortnite also revealed that it is joining E3 this June. The Fortnite booth is #601, and is located at the E3 show floor in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center. The booth is present from June 11 to June 13.

There is also a two-day Fortnite Summer Block Party on June 15 and June 16 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Here, fans and players can celebrate the game along with their favorite creators and celebrities. Part of this event is a Fortnite Creative Showdown involving eight teams in what may well be the first official Fortnite Creative tournament on the big stage. Then there is also the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, where 50 creators and 50 celebrities pair up and battle for ultimate glory.
