Fortnite’s smallish 1.8.1 update is live today, and probably the most important addition is actually something that helps you delete things from the game: player voices, to be exact. Yep, you can now mute other players in voice chat. Hooray! Expect improved quest drops, fixes for battle royale gameplay, optimizations, improved team UI, and a minor daily challenge rebalance. Over on the PvE side, players will see better matchmaking, tweaks to a few clsses, and improvement to “the frequency of quest item drops to avoid frustrating unlucky streaks.”
Servers are up as of this morning, though Epic says “you may run into a short queue when connecting.”
Stay tuned for tonight at 7 p.m. EDT, when MOP’s Stream Team will return again to the game!
