On Sunday, Epic Games released a surprise patch for Fortnite patch v9.41 titled “Rule The World”, which comes with several changes and one surprise update.

The update introduces six new maps to the Battle Royale mode. Fortnite added a limited time mode to Battle Royale called “The Rager”, which replaced Sunday Night Loading Screen. With a slightly randomized loading screen, players can enjoy the nostalgic refresh after a long weekend of gameplay. Other changes include the addition of the music playlist that players can add songs from other apps to their playlists. The playlist is also the new default playlist for players who want to switch to another playlist in the future.

The main update is the changes for the Gaming Loader, as Epic is beefing up the storage with 300GB of cloud storage to allow for save games to be saved on a local device. Save games are now 50% faster and will now auto-save once the player is connected to the Battle Royale client. That means players can save videos and content to their local devices before entering a PvP game. They will also be able to save specific characters, a feature that will be added later to update 5.40. Save game saves will be available after the level reaches levels 32 and above for Battle Royale players.

Fortnite players will also notice an added slot in the player’s character, their introduction to Save game mode. They will be able to draw their physical holster to the center of their character. In essence, they will have a fully charged weapon holstered on their hip, as the toggle on the right of the chest will be enabled when a player enters Save game mode.
