From drawing massive amounts of players on consoles and PC to its recent domination on mobile, little has been slowing down the progress of Fortnite in the past few months, and now Epic is giving its players a sneak peek at what to expect from the title in the near future.

Developer Epic Games released a new development update post providing some details on expected updates, new features, and more coming to Fortnite in the coming months. Specifically, Epic detailed some of the points that it is expecting to improve upon and add on, based on feedback from players.

One point that the studio brought up was the game’s performance on controllers, which includes improving the feel of playing on a gamepad by including aim assist when in Build Mode, and, down the line, even including the ability for players to use custom bindings to remap the controls how they like.

Alongside control and gameplay tweaks, the studio is also looking to develop and implement more of the game’s Limited Time Modes, and potentially keeping some of the modes available at all times for players to enjoy such as the ever-popular 50v50 mode.

Fortnite is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and iOS, with an Android release for the title planned down the line. For a closer look at what the studio has in store for the game, you can read the full blog post for the upcoming developments and updates from Epic Games.
