With the release of update v20.00, we are making a significant shift to the items available for purchase in Save the World. Save the World will no longer sell Llamas (Upgrade, People, Hero, etc), gameplay-affecting items, or items that accelerate your progression through the game for V-Bucks or real-world currency. These changes bring Save the World into closer alignment with Battle Royale, where cosmetics do not give any competitive advantage over players who choose not to pay.

What’s changing exactly?

  • Starter packs that include Save the World access will no longer include a Hero or any X-Ray Tickets. They will still include cosmetic items (Outfit, Back Bling, and Pickaxe), and their challenges will grant an additional 500 V-Bucks (for 1500 total).
    • The Mecha-Pop Pack will be the first one to use this new format.

The pecking order has changed.

In Avian Ambush Week, chickens are kings of the ecosystem. They’ve totally done away with sharks, wolves, frogs, and boars… and they’re coming after you next. Not only have they become more common, but they now fight back when attacked. Choosing peace with them instead? Hold one and it’ll peck at nearby opponents! You’ll also notice glowing chickens called Loot Chickens. Like crows (whom the chickens spared), these chickens carry loot!

As you’re hatching new strategies in Avian Ambush Week, complete “Avian Ambush Week” Quests for extra XP. 🐔

  Attention Commanders,
We have quite the wild Status Report for you today, so let's hop right in. Homebase Status Report - Initiate! 

Wildlife has torn its way into Save the World, and take on the new Brawl of the Wild Questline

Good news! The Wildlife of the land has begun to adapt to The Storm's forces and are now re-emerging into the environment. The flip side of this good news though… Some of the local Wildlife aren’t very friendly- yet. Confronting these beasts is very dangerous, but learning how to work with them may be the key to fighting back against The Storm.

Use bait to make friends with the Wildlife, or take the more defensive approach.. And by that I mean  hide in the shadows while they pick their own fights with the Husks. Either way, the day is ours!

You may be thinking: “Doesn’t Fortnite already have gyro controls?” While it’s true that Fortnite on Nintendo Switch and Android had gyro-based motion controls, we’ve added more robust gyro controls to Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, Android, PlayStation 4 and 5, and PC with v19.30!
