Fortnite has reached version 5.30, with big additions to both Battle Royale and Save the World modes. The main additions are the previously-teased Rift-To-Go item, and a new Limited Time Mode called Score Royale.

Both are just what they sound like—the Rift-To-Go is an inter-dimensional rift that players can keep in their equipment; upon use, the player and their allies can use it to fly from out of the sky and make a surprise landing. Of course, players should be wary of enemies potentially using the same portals.

Score Royale will have players gaining points by performing various tasks, such as collecting coins, opening loot boxes, and eliminating enemies. The scoring chart, according to Epic’s website, is below.

Meanwhile, the Save the World mode hasn’t been forgotten, with the campaign adding a new weapon. The Blunderbuss Assault Rifle does a good amount of damage, with plenty of ammunition to spare.

Fortnite v5.30 is now available to play on all platforms—hope that the patch doesn’t crash the game again.
