Battle Royale Liking the the jump pad

We are testing this internally and it somehow got into the live game. We're issuing a hotfix that will turn this off. It's not quite ready for prime time.
 
If you get a chance to try it out, let us know what you think while it's hot :)

Servers are back online, thank you for your patience everyone!

Battle Royale FNBR Performance Update

A performance post that does not deal with Xbox One. ** I do not respect.**

It generically covers performance. 1.8 was improvement over 1.7.2 according to or metrics and we currently expect 1.8.1 to be noticeable improvement over 1.8 and have some further improvements in the works for 1.8.2.

Greasy Grove should be much less hitchy in 1.8.1. Not perfect yet though.

20hz?! Even CoD has finally moved past 20hz. Jesus. That's a problem in and of itself

20 Hz isn’t the end goal :-)

Will you look at ever uncapping frame-rate on PS4 Pros?

1.8.1 has an option for it.

Rip west coast pings. Virginia servers? :(

We haven’t removed data centers, only added.

Just please get rid of the capped 30 fps on ps4. I can barely even play anymore.

Option in Thursday’s update.

Love the new info and transparency with this topic. I have a question though. What is the desired timeframe for these improvements? I know it might be hard to say as things change day to day, but ballpark.

ASAP. Most should be relatively fast (in development context) like next 4-6 weeks. High level network optimizations will take a couple of months I think :-/

I work for Jira support and right now I have a ticket made by epic games. I assure I'll give you the best support I can!

You guys make a great product - we use jira extensively here :-)

Something similar to what Heroes of the Storm has work suit perfectly (:

I could google it, but just to be sure we are talking about the same thing — could you link to article or video?

Wow this was way more in depth and in detail than I ever expected, you're the man Dan! Thanks!

Thanks for raising the issue - it inspired me to collect and write down my thoughts and also helped make sure we are really on top of it. We have some good findings already like synchronous loads on server.

Apologies, the patch notes were not stickied in the Announcements section. They are up there now if you would like to check them out!
Come check out all of the patch notes for 1.8.1 here!

Just bindged the whole thing last night. This is so good. :D

This has been posted before, but just to bring light to it again. It scares me out of my fur whenever someone has been revived.

It should be an easy fix that should just take a minute.

On my radar! I feel your pain and wanna get it fixed asap. It's a bug- the sound of a teammate being downed isn't intended to be playing when reviving players. Thanks for reporting. :)

how do i download it on Ps4 since i own in for PC?

If you search for Fortnite in the PSN store there's an option to download a free version. Once your PlayStation ID is linked to your Epic account, you'll be able to log in and play with that shared progress.
