As is now pretty much tradition, it’s dedicated data miners who are the first to reveal what’s changed in the new update. Often, Epic Games won’t provide any comprehensive details, with the community instead leaning on those digging into the game files.

Readers can find the data mined findings above which will be accompanied by the official patch notes, if they are ever published.

Arguably the most interesting content in this build of the game are the DC and Marvel characters. On the DC side, Batman and Catwoman skins appear to be making their return. While on the Marvel side, Loki has been spotted in one of the loading screens. This will likely tie into the new Loki show that will soon debut on Disney Plus.

While these changes largely impact those in Battle Royale, Creative Mode players will still enjoy the new ability to “Survey and oversee larger spaces.” It should soon become clear what exactly Epic Games means by this when servers are back up and running.

In other Fortnite news, the Street Shadows Challenge Pack has been revealed as a PC exclusive. However, those without a gaming PC can still get it.

Recently there have been rumors about an in-game Fortnite Lady Gaga concert, skin, and Locker Bundle. Here’s the need-to-know info.

Fortnite x NBA is now live. Take a look at the full set of skins here.
