‘Fortnite’s’ Save the World Free-to-Play Not Happening This Year

"Save the World has grown consistently since our launch in July 2017 and Fortnite overall has experienced unprecedented growth", Epic writes in the latest update on the state of Fortnite.

The cooperative PvE Save the World mode was the original pitch for Fortnite, and has remained in development as the free-to-play PvP Battle Royale has exploded in popularity. It's true: Save the World is often overshadowed by its BR counterpart-something which might subside somewhat when the former also goes free-to-play. They'll also be giving the various Founder's packs a half price sale next week, which gets you access to Save the World.

Epic Games has been putting out cryptic tweets in recent days, that all appear to be pointing toward a special Halloween-themed event in their popular battle royale hit, Fortnite. Moreover, all Save The World founders who log-in during the Fortnite Halloween event (Fortnitemares) will unlock the Brainiac Jonesy and Skull Ranger Ramirez skins for free. This system has been redesigned to offer a more flexible approach to customizing your loadout with more options and room for creativity. Players will have six hero slots, twice the amount as before. To find out more, head to the official Fortnite blog here. Players will have the main hero to command and the five additional chosen heroes will decide what "perks and traits" players will have access to.

For those anxious about changes to already upgraded sections, Epic has already considered this and has a solution for players to not lose out on materials. The developers require more time to work on the features and especially backend scaling. "For this first version we will be rolling out the "re-balance flag" to only Heroes adjusted by the new system, while we investigate how to grant back other materials in edge case scenarios".

Epic Games shared another Fortnite teaser for the upcoming "Fortnitemares Event" that's coming soon.
