A little while back, Polygon published a series of articles examining a handful of the game’s first few hours.
The articles gave a brief overview of the content, a short summary of the gameplay, and an overview of a few of the more prominent moments in the game.
At the time, the article went up to a couple of hundred words, but as we’ve seen with other games, a few things can change from one article to the next.
A few things, and a lot of other things.
Over the past week, I’ve seen the articles and video from Polygon and other sites get expanded to cover the first few days of the beta and a few more features.
The most notable change is the introduction of a new section called “Trailer”, which was created specifically for this article.
It’s here that you’ll find some of the first screenshots of the next major feature for the game: the new tutorial mode.
The new tutorial will allow players to create their own character in the new “Adventure Mode” (shown in the screenshot above) by selecting the character from the “Character Selection Screen” on the character select screen.
For those unfamiliar with the Adventure Mode, it’s basically a new “experience” mode for Fortnite that has a much larger map and a wider variety of monsters to fight.
Each level will have a “trailer”, a few enemies, and some loot, so players can quickly see what each area will be like before they even start the actual adventure.
This new tutorial can also be accessed from the main menu by tapping on the map.
It’ll take you to a new page where you’ll be able to see the first “trailers” of each level.
After that, you’ll need to find and fight a few random mobs on the level to unlock a new level.
Once you’ve unlocked a new map, you can continue the tutorial.
You’ll be given a “New Level” tag that allows you to start a new adventure by selecting it from the drop down menu.
If you’ve been following the tutorial for a while, you might remember that you can press the X on your controller and select “Start Adventure” from the options menu, which will start the adventure on your current map.
There’s also a new option that will automatically start the game at level 0, which means you can jump in at any time and play in the tutorial mode right from the game menu.
There’s a new feature called “Achievement Match” in the Fortnites Adventure Mode.
That feature lets you set goals and objectives for yourself that you set in the “Trailers” section of the Adventure Map screen.
You can see your own objectives and goals in the image above.
I haven’t tried this feature yet, but it does seem like it will be one of the major features in the first week or so.
Achievements and objectives aren’t the only new features for the Fortntime beta.
Other features include new animations, a new weapon system, and several new achievements.
These are the most exciting new features, though, as they represent the biggest changes in the update for Fortnight.
We’ll be bringing you all the new features as they are revealed, so stay tuned for more information in the weeks to come.
Stay tuned to Polygon for more coverage on the Fortnight beta.
