Fortnite Patch Prepares for Winterfest, Adds More Super Level Styles

Fortnite developer Epic Games has released a relatively tame patch, v19.01, for Chapter 3 Season 1: Flipped that largely adds more Super Level Styles and prepares the video game for the upcoming Winterfest holiday event while making minor balance changes and bug fixes. The patch notes specifically also note that while the developer is aware of an issue with Spider-Man's Web-Shooters being interrupted when players swing onto web bouncers, that will not be fixed until the v19.10 update.

Super Level Styles are available in the Bonus Rewards section of the Battle Pass tab for folks that move pass Level 100, and new Super Level Styles have been added for past Level 150: Photo Negative, Scarlet Blackout, and Gilded Reality Super Level Styles for Shanta, Ronin, Lt. John Llama, Harlowe, and Spider-Man.

  • Fixed an issue that caused us to disable Split Screen. Split Screen is now re-enabled.
  • Fixed an issue involving Reboot Vans sometimes not rebooting players if more than one teammate was interacting with the Van.
