In other words, Fortnite update 13.30 isn't the most exciting patch on the planet, as it more or less just adds files to continue existing festivities with a few minor bug fixes and map changes mixed in. That being said, there is a hint that this patch was intended to include drivable cars, but the feature has presumably been delayed until the next major update. Not only do the patch notes themselves reference said cars, but the newly designed Gas Stations also point to their arrival in the near future. All Gas Stations across the map now have fuel deposits, which we assume will be used to gas up cars once they go live. Until then, though, players can shoot the panels to cause an explosion.

Beyond the promise of something more, however, there's not much to be excited about in 13.30. We imagine we'll get our first look at those referenced team challenges in Thursday's round of tasks, and they'll probably be pretty simple to complete. In the meantime, maybe you can look for those remaining Floating Rings if you had a hard time getting them to appear on your platform. Update 13.30 is pretty bland, but at least it gets us excited for 13.40.

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