'Fortnite' Update 11.11 Adds Black Blade & Save the World Quest - Patch Notes

Fortnite update 11.11 is finally live after a brief delay, and we have the abridged patch notes to prove it. Unfortunately for Battle Royale fans, the latest drop doesn't do much. PvE players can enjoy a new questline and weapon for Save the World, but everyone else will basically be playing the same game as last week. Read the full patch notes below.

For Save the World fans, update 11.11 marks the first time in a while players have seen a significant content drop for that mode. Fortnite Chapter 1 introduced new PvE quests almost every week, but the situation has been far less frequent for the current season. Considering those folks are paying customers compared to the legions of free Battle Royale enthusiasts, it makes sense to throw them a bone every once in awhile. With a new weapon and character available in addition to the missions, fans of that experience will have a lot to do today.

Beyond that subset of players, though, Fortnite update 11.11 is more or less a dud with a few minor bug fixes. In fact, with regard to Battle Royale, there aren't even any skins available for sleuths to datamine. It's possible the unforeseen bug that caused Epic to delay update 11.11's release caused its content plan to shrink, but it's worth noting that weekly patches have been far less impactful throughout most of Fortnite Chapter 2 overall. Especially in the absence of full patch notes, there isn't much to be excited about. Hopefully that means non-PvE players can expect big things around November 19, when the game's next update is expected to go live.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile.
