Fortnite: V19.30 Update Released Contains so many new things & More– Fortnite, the popular online battle royale game, recently received an update. Fortnite v19.30 update includes bug fixes and other improvements and was released on 15 February 2022.
Among the new features added to the game with this update are improved gyro controls. Additionally, players will now directly load into the lobby as the game has removed the initial mode selection screen.
Two Major Changes
In Fortnite, gyro controls will be available on platforms supporting gyro functionality. It was developed in collaboration with input specialist and flick stick creator Julian “Jibb” Smart. In addition to the existing gyro controls on Nintendo Switch and Android, the update brings a more elaborate gyro control system to Fortnite on all platforms, and also on PlayStation 4/5 and PC. With the new gyro controls, users will be able to control the in-game view by turning their controller. Additionally, the gyro controls can be enabled or disabled in the menu ‘Touch and Motion’ located in the settings of the game.
With the new Fortnite update, the initial game screen which appeared on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC has been removed. The screen allowed players to select modes such as Save the World, Battle Royale, or Creative. Players will now directly boot into the game’s lobby and they will be ready to play immediately. However, if you wish to play the Save the World or Creative modes, you can still find those on the Discover screen, which is accessed by clicking on the Change button above Play.
