A Fortnite patch came to iOS March 22 that fixed some of the stability issues plaguing the platform.

When people think of Fortnite chances are they think of the console or PC versions first but there’s actually a pretty large mobile player base. 

Both iOS and Android devices now have the ability to reach 60 FPS but there are still numerous issues plaguing the platform.

Epic Games pushed out an iOS patch on March 22 to fix some of the stability issues on the platform but warned it wouldn’t be fixing them all this go around.

What it does do is give Epic Games a new way to gather information when crashes occur in an effort to resolve the problems are quick as possible.

This iOS patch targeted stability issues in Fortnite

Here’s what Epic Games wrote on Reddit about the patch.

Hey Folks,
We’ve just released patch v.8.11.1 on iOS, intended to help with some of the stability issues that players have been experiencing. While this patch will not fix all the current stability issues that players are experiencing, we have included a new way for us to gather more information when crashes occur, in order to resolve these issues as quickly as we can.
Thanks for your feedback, we’re working on it!

It looks like Epic Games has decided to prioritize iOS devices with this patch as it’s possible the problems are more prevalent on iOS rather than Android. 

With each patch Fortnite receives it irons out some bugs so we should be able to expect more fixes in a future update.

Early on Season 8, there was a bit of controversy as mobile and Nintendo Switch lobbies were merged together.

Mobile players are upset they are matched against Switch players now

On one hand, the Switch can’t reach 60 FPS so mobile has the advantage there but Switch users have the ability to use the Pro Controller.

If mobile players plug in a controller and use it then it will pair them up with other controller lobbies like Xbox One and PS4.

The change probably helped Switch users get more Victory Royales but made it more difficult for mobile users.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
