'Fortnite' may be looking to increase player count in matches

According to Williamson, the team has been wondering if it makes sense to consider over 100 players, and that there are a lot of "technological considerations" to keep in mind for something like that. I mean, personally, I would love to try it. It's a tough problem to solve because they're different paces of game.

Fortnite fans, would you like to see better integration of the modes? Firstly, the tweet dated April 10 like the one above does not show up in the official Fortnite Twitter account feed nor any other social media accounts. "Certainly, we have problems in trying to get there".

There's no particular reason that most Battle Royale games have stuck to 100 players per match, it's just a nice round number that ensures plenty of people are around for you to shoot in the face - and for you to be shot by.

The company recently had a chance to speak with PlayStation Magazine about how it ended up doing away with classes in the game, noting, "If we were to put those classes into Battle Royale, everyone would gravitate towards the one with the smallest hit box". Some fans on the Fortnite forums have expressed their frustration with what seems to be the developer's lack of attention to Save the World.

In the interview, Williamson also discussed the benefits of limited time modes and how they allow Epic to experiment with the game.

"I was sitting at home and I was playing Fortnite, and all of sudden, I hear a bunch of noise", Williams said.

The new Fortnite Week 9 challenges have been revealed earlier than expected, thanks to the Fortnite tracker app which reads hidden data found within the game's files.

If it does happen it may at first be via one of the limited time modes for Battle Royale mode, which often switch up the rules in order to try something different. Next week, it says that players will receive free packs of Battle Stars and Seasonal Gold in Battle Royale and Save the World, respectively.
