The Battle Royale mode has already become a hit within Fortnite and it seems the first expansion will be arriving on September 26th just when the mode goes free to play for everyone. Epic Games posted an update this morning on what we can all expect including:
- Squads (including 2 and 4 player support) with DBNO functionality.
- New weapons including a scoped assault rifle and tactial SMG.
- HUD updates.
- Supply drops and cosmetic items (coming shortly after this update).
