Epic Games released a content update today which included a new leaked emote, new NFL skin styles, and ziplines finally being fixed.
Epic Games released an unexpected content update today for both Battle Royale and Save the World. There wasn’t anything major added to the game, but there were a number of bug fixes along with some new skin styles and a brand new emote that was leaked by dataminers.
Many were expecting the next update to come next week when the v11.50 update drops. However, there’s been a number of bugs that Epic have been working on that has been ruining the playing experience for players.
In today’s update, Epic have addressed issues such as the ziplines being disabled due to an issue, editing quickly causing players to remain in edit mode, no sound on PC, and not being able to edit when a player is looking straight down.
Leaked Freemix Emote
An emote was leaked by dataminers that was added in today’s Fortnite update. The source for the emote is item shop. It’s strange Epic decided to add an emote in today’s update, especially one that players already seem to hate. Here’s a look at the Freemix emote in action:
