New Fortnite Update Brings Dynamite To Battle Royale

Fortnite

The latest content update to arrive in Fortnite has brought a few goodies for players to enjoy. One brings some explosive fun to the fight, while another comes in the form of a Limited Time Mode that reduces the amount of weapons and items found on the battlefield.

Taking to their website, Epic Games outlined everything included in the new content update with a fresh set of patch notes. We learn more about Dynamite, the new LTM, and even another tournament that has joined the mix. Save the World has also received a bit of love with the Ghost Pistol being added to the Weekly Store. Check out everything that’s new in the patch notes below:
