Fortnite Introduces Battle Lab Creates Player Game Modes


Game company Epic Games just released a new update for video game Fortnite featuring the Battle Lab.

Fortnite gets Battle Lab

The game just received patch v11.31 on all platforms. Epic Games does not share any specifics with patch notes anymore, but they did add a new feature that is worth noting.

Battle Lab is a custom mode creator that allows players to make their own rules. It includes the ability to modify parameters like gravity and other factors beyond what they can see in the game’s limited time modes.

Players can even spawn in bots with the new Bot Grenade, and play around with the loot pools. They can invite up to 15 friends in a locally-hosted version, or take it to public matchmaking. With the public matchmaking though, they are limited to the default options.

This is a more controlled environment compared to Battlegrounds. That mode cannot be removed, but can be found instead under Creative, given its more free-form nature.

Check out the fixes that were found:

  • Continued to make improvements regarding FPS drops and hitching on mobile devices.
  • The Fire/Build button on mobile devices is no longer unavailable when the Glider Redeploy button is shown.
  • Resolved an issue involving players being unable to exit the HUD Layout Tool on mobile devices.
  • Resolved an issue involving being able to see the Edit option on enemy walls.
  • The “Eliminations without aiming down sights” Dive! Challenge is now tracking progress properly.
  • Resolved an issue involving the “Join Party” option through “Joinable Parties” not working on controller.
  • The Item Shop countdown timer no longer appears out of sync for different players.
  • Resolved stability issues.

The game is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Android, Xbox One, iOS, and PC.
