Fortnite: Save the World October 2019 Roadmap

Epic Games teases most challenging battle ever coming to upcoming roadmap for Fortnite: Save the World.

From the period of its inception, people are so caught up with free-to-play online shooter Fortnite Battle Royale that they often forget about original "Save the World" game mode of Fortnite cooperative shooter-survival game.

While developer/publisher Epic Games was pretty busy pulling their biggest marketing stunt for official reveal of Fortnite Chapter 2, they clearly didn't forget about where it all began and has released a new roadmap for STW recently.

Players who are away from keyboard will be kicked off from sessions much sooner than before. Those who contribute less in objectives will receive lesser rewards compared to other teammates who actually are doing their part.

Players should beware as following content update V11.20, Mythic Storm King will return for some epic boss fight. There will be new challenges, gameplay mechanics and enrage timer to make your battles most difficult in STW mode.

However, those who are brave enough to take on this challenge can earn exclusive weapons of Storm King. They will unlock special behaviors, let you shoot projectiles, charge laser blasts and even summon meteors on Husk enemies.

When Fortnite Battle Royale map and everything else was sucked into a black hole, Save the World also became unavailable to digital storefronts but now that Fortnite Chapter 2 is kick-started, STW got its relaunch as well.

Although there was rumors earlier that Fortnite: Save the World may go free-to-play like battle royale mode but so far, no noticeable change made by Epic Games in upcoming roadmap suggests that is a possibility for rest of 2019 at least.

Fortnite Season 10 Ends With a Bang!

End of Season 10 took battle royale sensation Fortnite down with a black hole event and goes totally offline.

Ever since its inception back in 2017, developer/publisher Epic Games has been successfully running seasons after new seasons of their free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite and Season 10 being their most recent one.

Following launch back in August 2019, tenth season of Fortnite Battle Royale quickly became its most-watched event ever. It has ended lately after disappearing into a black hole and causing total blackout by going completely offline.

Nearing end of Season 3, a mysterious alien known as the Visitor arrived on battle royale island of Fortnite in 2018. After causing a number of catastrophes over a year and so, a rocket was set on top of Dusty Depot by the Visitor.

That rocket has recently launched when current season was about to end and it exploded into a couple of pieces. A giant rift is created that sucked everything on the island into it including players before getting lost into nothingness.

Season X was the biggest ever event that Epic Games hosted for their popular multiplayer shooter. Players were hinted that something big was about to happen nearing end and then everything else were sucked into a black hole.

Fortnite is currently offline and its in-game lobby is a black screen same as their official Twitch and YouTube channels. Though there were no potential sign of the game getting shut down for good, some fans are panicking in sudden blackout.

Games are usually taken down for server maintenance and put back up after a few hours to let everyone back at playing. However, Fortnite purposefully went offline for a reason and millions of players are eagerly waiting to see what happens.

Millions of fans are still watching over streams on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube in anticipation of some sort of epic reveal. No one seems to know exactly what to expect from this and developers are just taking time to unveil their big secret.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops Trailer

Apparently, Fortnite: Chapter 2 was been leaked earlier via Italian iOS App Store that features a brand-new map. Rather than being a sequel to original free-to-play shooter, Epic Games may just reopen the game with new characters and gameplay.

If anything from these leaks is true then Fortnite is likely to head to a complete new direction, probably with a new story. Therefore, "Chapter 2 – Season 1" makes a lot of sense instead of Season 11 when it will be revealed on October 14.

Halo Infinite Lead Producer Exits 343 Industries

Mary Olson, lead campaign producer of upcoming first-person shooter title Halo Infinite leaves 343 Industries this weekend.

A short while ago in August, news came out that creative director Tim Longo of upcoming first-person shooter game Halo Infinite has left developer studio 343 Industries, only a year before its scheduled release in fall 2020.

According to Reddit and ResetEra, the company is seeing another leadership shakeup this weekend as lead campaign producer Mary Olson is also leaving 343, who was an executive producer and was promoted earlier.

Such big departures from a very ambitious project over a short period time would likely to have people assume that the project is currently having a leadership crisis and though it is a valid concern, an employee of 343 suggests otherwise.

After Olson's departure became public knowledge, Halo community manager John Junyszek came forward clarifying what both Tim & Mary's roles were within company, which seems to create a lot of confusion lately.

RELATED: Crackdown 2 Developers Working on New Rockstar Game

Junyszek wrote his point in a Reddit comment from his account where he talked about what Mary Olson and Tim Longo was doing at 343. Longo was hired to make creative decisions about game direction including campaign, multiplayer and more.

Mary was an executive producer, who then became lead producer to help development team deliver the game before holiday 2020 release date and her primary objective was to focus on achieve completion of its core campaign.

RELATED: Hades: The Superstar Update Live Now

Olson joins developer/publisher Midwinter Entertainment to work on upcoming multiplayer survival shooter Scavengers. Nevertheless, it won't cause any creative dilemma as she was not in charge of major creative decisions at 343 Industries.

Halo Infinite was announced as a launch title for next-gen Microsoft console Project Scarlett back in E3 2019, which will see long-awaited return of a renowned first-person shooter game series next year and a cross-platform release.

Crackdown 2 Developers Working on New Rockstar Game

Crackdown 2 developer Ruffian Games is hiring talents to reportedly work on new project for Rockstar Games.

British video game developer Ruffian Games has made a name for themselves in video game industry after working on Xbox 360-exclusive action-adventure game Crackdown 2 back in 2010 for publisher Microsoft Game Studios.

After rumors starts flying about developer/publisher Rockstar Games having multiple new games in development and confirmed by a former employee, it is revealed lately that Ruffian is involved in one of their upcoming projects.

Following their successful stint on second installment of Crackdown series, they contributed to Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Crackdown 3 multiplayer mode Wrecking Zone this year alongside several other projects.

Their job listing on official site is looking to hire talents for a few positions for multiplayer action games including roles like senior engineer, senior gameplay engineer and UI engineer but no mentions for Rockstar Games are found there.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Specs and Story Mode Content

However, they recently retweeted an article shared by Scottish Games Network that mentioned about working on games for Rockstar.


RELATED: Vigor Update 1.1: Bridges Live Now

Both Rockstar and Ruffian are Scottish companies and the latter is comprised of former developers of Grand Theft Auto series. These are some relatable factors for starters that make their partnership great and meaningful.

There is no clear indication of what they will be working on though except for their "multiplayer action games" title will be for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and "future platforms", meaning upcoming PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops Trailer

Rockstar made huge bucks from their 2013 action-adventure title Grand Theft Auto V, which is one of the best-selling games of all time. In 2019, they brought home more cash from Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Redemption 2.

They may or may not be working on long-anticipated game Bully 2 and possibly an online multiplayer mode for it. Their plan of working on games for next-generation consoles as well as current platforms doesn't mean much either.

RELATED: PlayStation 5 to Release in Holiday 2020

There was rumor of Grand Theft Auto VI being a PS5 launch title featuring a female protagonist and an even bigger map than GTAV. Before Rockstar released GTA5 on PS4 and Xbox One, they brought the game on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 first.

Since GTA6 is likely to be a much larger release than any of their previous games, Rockstar Games may not bring their next project to older platforms and despite their vast resources, has recruited Ruffian Games for additional support.
