Epic Games has released the Fortnite update 3.17 May 25 patch, or what the studio calls the v16.50 title update. This brings a slew of fixes, changes, and of course, new stuff into the game that players can see listed below.
Fortnite Update 3.17 May 25 Patch Notes (v16.50):
The official Fortnite Trello board has not been updated yet, but here are the confirmed stuff incoming:
- A fan favorite comes back out of the vault
- Survey and oversee larger spaces in
- Spend your Bars BIG in the next Wild Week starting June 3!
Fixes (via Trello board):
Player-built structures have reduced visuals in PC Performance Mode.
We’re aware of an issue where player-built structures appear with a reduced visual state (“bubble-wrapped”) in the PC Performance Mode alpha.
Just-added friends wrongly appearing offline.
Friends you just added may wrongly appear offline in your friends list.
If this issue occurs, it can be resolved by the just-added friend setting their online status to “Away” then back to “Online.” Waiting approximately one minute or restarting the game will also resolve the issue.
Moving left in the inventory on controller skips the last weapon slot.
When trying to move or rearrange your inventory while using a controller, moving left from the first weapon slot will skip the final weapon slot.
“Recent Islands” list does not update.
We’re investigating an issue where the “Recent Islands” list does not update after entering an Island.
The ocean is invisible in the minimap.
We’re investigating an issue that is causing the ocean to appear invisible on the minimap.
A game not starting if player is in Phone Booth.
If the player is in the Phone Booth during pregame’s auto start countdown, the game won’t start until the player exits the Phone Booth.
