Fortnite players petition Epic Games to return patch notes

Epic Games delay of any patch notes for Fortnite since the start of Chapter 2 drove some players to start a petition calling for the updates list release.

As with past updates in Chapter 2, Fortnite v11.11 arrived with no official patch notes to go along with it.

This situation has led to some players creating unofficial Fortnite patch notes of their own in an attempt to figure out exactly what’s going on during each update.

Epic Games so far have shared no reason for the absence of patch notes or even addressed the matter at the time of writing, which has led to players trying other ways to get their complaints heard.

A lot of people seem to want patch notes back

The Fortnite news account @FNBRHQ started the petition on Twitter, which said patch notes were needed “for the game to evolve.”

It also called on fans to “unite and sign” a petition asking Epic Games to return the regular official patch notes.

The online petition website may not have the ability actually to do anything about the problem. Still, a large number of signatures (over 2,500 at the time of writing) could show how many people want the notes back.

Patch Notes are crucial for the future of the game,” the online petition claims. “If the players of the game are not informed on what changes are being made, their decisions will remain private, and therefore, the game won’t be able to evolve or improve.”

In closing, the petition argues, “players can’t judge a change if they haven’t been informed of it.”

The petition had over 2,500 signatures on November 13.

Will we ever see patch notes again?

Epic Games has given no reason for the lack of patch notes in Chapter 2, but there are theories out there that claim the company is trying to give players an authentic Season One experience with no update lists.

Whatever the reason is, it doesn’t make sense from a competitive point of view either when a publisher removes basic patch notes on updates to the game, so players are aware of changes.

Unfortunately for some players, patch notes’ whereabouts are currently as unknown as the official update list for Fortnite v11.11.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
