Fortnite Issues Spur Developer To Create ‘Trello Board’ For Extra Transparency
Fortnite recently celebrated the launch of its third season, bringing with it major building improvements, new music, and John freaking Wick. Of course, with the game and its player base always expanding, so too do the Fortnite issues multiply, and as such developer Epic Games has announced the launch of a Trello board dedicated to its ongoing issues.
The Trello board is in essence Epic Games’ way of being fully transparent with its player base, with a heavy focus on the game’s bugs and updates. The board is divided into multiple different categories; there are separate panels dedicated to Battle Royale mode, Save The World mode, and Patch Notes, each section of which features the current “Top Issues” being worked on. Seen below, the issues are color coded for clarity, with green representing an issue that is “Fixed in live,” orange representing “Investigating/In Development,” and red representing “Need Your Help,” which are issues that require more player feedback.
The neat layout isn’t just for show, though. Selecting any of the listed Fortnite issues expands the box and reveals everything related to the topic, including its description and the source of the information. An extremely handy part of the expanded view is the listed work-arounds, which will of course vary from issue to issue.
Epic Games is treating its Trello board as a one stop shop for bug information and patch notes, though the latter category on the board will only have a brief description of each patch and a link to download the full patch notes. Fortnite is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
So, thoughts on the new way Epic Games is communicating Fortnite issues? Would you actually make use of the Trello board, or stick with communications via social media instead?
