Fortnite’s popularity as a battle royale game remains on the rise over the years. Epic Games has released a new Season for the game which not only changes the map but adds tons of new skins, weapons, and exciting new challenges.

The build-up to the next season has been quite exciting, to say the least, with a Zero Point appearing on the map at the end of Season 5. The Zero Point is a story object in the game and is regarded as a bridge to other realities. Epic Games finally revealed what’s coming in Season 6 via a live stream event. Season 6 is known will be adding animals to the game alongside brand new crafting mechanics. Here are the patch notes revealed so far.

Fortnite Season 6 Update – Patch Notes

CREATIVE V16.00 UPDATE

IMPROVED BARRIER DEVICE

The improved Barrier device is here and includes some updated artwork! Previously, the Barrier device was tied to the build grid, now it can be placed anywhere without needing to be anchored to prebuilt structures. The new Barrier device can be cut, copied, pasted and rotated, and is added to the quick bar rather than the trap inventory. Additionally, the Barrier provides improved scalability selections. If you need a small or large barrier, the scalability improvements will allow Creators to alter the size of the barrier before and after being placed.

    • The normal Grid Island now appears Green.
