Fortnite Battle Royale Map Adds Mine Shafts, Junkyard And A Motel

Поле битвы в Fortnite будет значительно улучшено

One of the biggest online shooters is about to become bigger.

Back in December, Epic's sandbox take on the Battle Royale genre passed the 30 million players milestone, with 1.3 million people playing concurrently.

If you thought the Fortnite map for the Battle Royale mode was just way too empty, too small, or too unexciting, Epic Games made a decision to update the map with several new locations, including the new Tilted Towers city location, the Shifty Shafts mine in the mountains, the Junk Junction junkyard beyond the forest, and a motel out in the plains.

Epic Games is also excited to announce that Fortnite continues to see player growth with more than 40 million players in its ecosystem and has peaked at more than two million concurrent players. Despite the fact that the experience is free, it's a remarkable feat. For the very same reasons mentioned, the game is only more likely to grow its playerbase.

In order to become the "biggest" Battle Royale game, Epic is making Fortnite, well, bigger.

NA Takes Position in Valero Energy Co. (VLO)
Finally, ValuEngine upgraded Valero Energy from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Sunday, December 31st. Valero Energy Corporation's Average Earnings Estimate for the current quarter is $1.3, according to consensus of 20 analysts.

The map update was internally dubbed "Map 2.0", although don't expect to hear that term used now publicly - this is the same map, not a second. This also means that players expecting new maps immediately might get disappointed since they are not the priority for the developers.
