Normally I would break this post down into multiple pages outlining the big changes, the changelog for both game modes and offer some insight into my thinking along the way, however this time around I have posted the game notes on the Fortnite Gamer group (save the world changes / battle royale changes). Our community is currently open to the public so everyone should be able to take a look but why not sign up - it's free of advertisements and costs nada and if enough people do it, I can stop complaining about it!
The Big Stuff
Battle Royale Season 2 - Battle Pass
Battle Royale Season 2 kicks off on Dec. 14th ending on Feb 20th, Season 2 will be free but if you want to get some extra cosmetic loot you can buy the battle pass and level it up by playing, successfully and the better you do the more you'll get video below explaining the above
Save the World - Event Store
Yet another way to help you spend those precious vCoiins you worked so hard to earn or purchased, it's not all bad as you can use the event store to get your collection completed or like most people - get that new gun you wanted to blow some husk heads apart.
Save the World - New Inventory
This one is actually a big one that I personally did think was coming in the previous release as it was mentioned in Future of Fortnite Battle Royale laid out but alas nothing came of that then when Fortnite 1.10 came out the inventory had only been finished for the battle royale game mode which was a little bit meh but on the other hand, Battle Royale's inventory is incredibly light and simplistic compared to the one of Save the World so forgiveable
I suspect anyone that plays the Save the World game mode for more than a few levels will tell you how frustrating it is to have to jump into a mission (even if just a storm shield one with no enemies) just to review your backpack + storage - crafting on a global level however is not supported but is coming soon so another one to look forward to!
Save the World - Survive the Holidays
This looks like a good event thats just as large in stature as the Fortnitemares event for the Haloween period was - although personally, I'll be more thankful for shooting husks in bad Christmas jumpers than I am for finding the vampire ghost ghoul things in the coffins. The event has new weapons, new tickets which leads to new loot Llamas, new husks, new survive the storm mode .. a lot of changes, read the changes log link above!
