Even though everyone in the Fortnite community likes the third-person mode, it looks like Epic Games is working on another mode for the game right now. The rumoured first-person mode for Fortnite was updated in the game’s v21.30 Summer update, which was leaked by HYPEX.
Fortnite has had a third-person mode from the beginning. Since building and survival are at the heart of the genre, it was important to make the game easier to play. The third-person mode makes it easier to find things to forage and makes it easier for players to build.
Even though the settings menu lets players change a few things here and there, the camera angle stays the same. Those who have played the game for a while will notice that the camera angle feels just right. But the first-person mode could soon change all of that.
Fortnite’s first-person mode is likely to come out soon.
Even though we don’t know the details, it seems likely that the developers are putting the finishing touches on the first-person mode. Since it’s been in development for so long, it’s likely that the new camera mode is now ready. The leaker said that it might come out in Chapter 3 Season 4.
Also, Chapter 3 Season 3 has already gotten a big change in the form of the Locker Archiving system, so it’s unlikely that the season will get another big change. Also, Epic Games always adds new mechanics and features at the beginning of a new season. Still, it will be interesting to see what the game looks like from a first-person view.
How would Fortnite look if you played it from the first-person view? Would it be as fun?
Even though Epic Games doesn’t have a video showing the new first-person mode. There is some footage from Chapter 2 Season 2 that you can watch. At the time, a strange bug made the camera switch from the normal third-person mode to an experimental first-person mode.
Even though the video is more than two years old. It gives a good idea of what players can expect from the first-person mode. Since the game is now run on Unreal Engine 5, the graphics will also be better and more appealing. However, there remain several unanswered questions.
How will players build in first-person mode, for starters? Since there aren’t many camera angles, will loopers be able to make fast edits and crazy 90s? You don’t have to be smart to figure out that the answer is no. Without a clear line of sight in all directions, it will be hard to build.
The developers will definitely come up with a way to solve this problem, but logically, there isn’t much that can be done. Even if Epic Games adds a dual-camera system like the one in No Man’s Sky and other survival games, it might not be enough.
On the other hand, players who like the Zero Build mode of Fortnite will be able to use the new first-person camera to its fullest. When building mechanics are taken out of the picture, it’s also easy to loot and shoot.
Near the end of this season, readers can expect to hear more about this new feature.
