Fortnite: Save the World revealed that players are going to meet the Mythic Storm King when update 11.20 rolls in. This is going to be the most challenging battle the game has seen and offers players new mechanics, new challenges, and an enrage timer. For players who take on this challenge and succeed, they get the chance to earn Mythic weapons.

These unique weapons represent the Storm King both visually and with how powerful they are. Each weapon comes with a unique perk which unlocks special behaviors starting at level 1. In addition, the weapons drop exclusively from the Mythic Storm King. For players who want them, they have to be earned as they cannot be dropped from the backpack.

Fortnite: Save the World also made some changes to the gameplay based on the concerns coming from the community. In particular, there was a need to shake up how the game is played in order to make sure that gameplay remained exciting with the renewed focus on counterplay. Players can expect changes to the how the traps work, for example. Traps are going to be more effective in some situations while also reducing exploitation in other situations. Adjustments are also going to be made for some of the AI to make them less frustrating.

Overall, players are likely to notice that the update is lighter than usual, especially for a ".00" release. This is because there is a need to shift to a less frequent cadence in order to have more meaningful updates. This also allows the game to diverge from shipping features around Battle Pass launches and to be able to release them in a more polished state.
