Fortnite FINAL update before Chapter 3 – Half price items, Cube Queen Bounty patch notes | Gaming | Entertainment
Fortnite fans can download a brand new update, which is likely the final patch for Chapter 2.
The new Fortnite update can be downloaded for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Android and Nintendo Switch.
Fortunately, the update is little more than a Hotfix, which means no server downtime is required.
The only downside is that the new Fortnite update doesn’t make any significant gameplay tweaks, although it’s hardly surprising at this stage of the season.
Instead, with the season and chapter coming to an end, the new update reduces the price of price of in-game items.
According to the patch notes, all NPC services and exotics are now 50% cheaper than before.
Elsewhere, the One Shot Duos LTM is also live, while the previous Wild Week changes have been reverted.
The hotfix also lays the foundation for the end of chapter event, which kicks off on the evening of December 4.
Titled ‘The End’, the end of season event sees players team up to battle the Cube Queen – as teased by Epic Games below.
“With The Convergence complete, The Cube Queen prepares her endgame for the Island and nothing will ever be the same,” reads an Epic post.
“Grab your weapons and fight the ultimate destroyer of all reality. Join The End, a one-time only, in-game event and battle for your legacy.
“The End marks the finale of Fortnite Chapter 2. This climatic event takes place on December 4 at 4 PM ET as players take on The Cube Queen in one last stand for the fate of the Island.
“Squad up with your friends and players around the world to take on the Sideways corruption. The End supports large parties of up to 16 players queued together, so bring the whole squad along.”
Players are encouraged to login 30 minutes ahead of schedule, or risk missing out on the one-time only event.
