Bots are arriving in Fortnite with Season 11 and Epic Games revealed some more information about how they will work.

In case you haven’t heard, bots are coming to Fortnite Season 11 as a way to help newer players learn the ropes.

Heading into Season 11, the meta has greatly shifted from building simple forts into complex builds and quick edits, something that the average player has problems with doing.

Epic GamesBots are coming to Fortnite and we’re not talking about the mechs.

Bots will help alleviate some of these concerns for newer players, but up until this point, we didn’t know exactly what skills they would have.

Epic explained how they wanted the bots to help players learn the mechanics of the game, but none of that would really matter if they had perfect aim and were able to crank 90s.

Fortunately, Epic says the bots would be able to do 90s (yet) and they also won’t be able to use vehicles, meaning they will have some limitations.

They say they are looking to see how far the bots can be pushed, but they won’t have the complete repertoire of a normal player at launch.

For those who were hoping to get into squads match with a team full of bots, you’re out of luck. Epic confirmed you won’t be able to party up with them and don’t have any plans to support this function.

While it won’t be available at launch, Epic are looking into allowing for full bot lobbies for players to hone their skills.

If players are defeated by a bot in a match, they won’t be spectating them but will instead be switched onto a regular player.

Epic also confirmed Creative Mode will not feature bots, but it’s something they will add to their roadmap.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
