Last week, Fortnite got a new update, Update v10.30. This week is the 8th Week of Season 10, and that means there’s some good news for the Battle  Royale enthusiasts.

Epic Games, today, released the latest Fortnite Battle Royale update. The Fortnite update 2.36, also known as Update v10.31, brings on board a range of new features, as well as fixes to some of the common bugs facing the game.

The new patch is available now on all platforms including PlayStation4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC (Windows), and mobile devices (iOS and Android). The update weighs in at 1.3GB on Xbox and PS4.

One of the highlights of this new update is a new feature known as Party Hub. ‘’We just launched the Party Hub in Fortnite on mobile. It’s a new feature that provides a space to link up with your friends as you prepare to drop into Fortnite. Grab some friends, party up, and let your voice be heard!’’ Read the Epic Games’ statement.

There is also a multitasking function that this Update tags along. But it is available in select iPad models including iPad Pro, iPad 5th gen and later, iPad Air 2 and later, and iPad Mini 4 and later.

Another highlight of the latest Fortnite patch is how the Storm Circles will work. The final locations for the Battle Royale game will not be in any of the Rift Zones. Even though players can still land in Moisty Palms, Greasy Grove, Tilted Town, or Retail Row, there isn’t going to be a showdown.

The bug with Ziplines has also been sorted, and once again, players can zoom across the island. Remember, this transportation mode had been disabled after it was noted that it caused an unintended effect on players.

Epic Games also solved the Star Wand and AC/DC Pickaxe bugs where the two weapons were not causing the intended damage. The publisher disabled the feature, but with the new, update, the bug is fixed, and so, the two weapons are back again.

These are just among the many bugs which the Fortnite Update v10.31 solves. To get more detailed information about the Fortnite glitches, and the ETA for the fixes, make sure to check out the Fortnite Trello board. For the complete patch notes for Update 2.36, please visit the Epic Games blog.

In other news, data miners have unearthed a lot of evidence that points to a Batman-themed crossover for the Battle Royale game. And it’s not just the mined data, the inclusion of Explosive Batarang and a Batman Grapnel also suggest Batman might be coming to Fortnite.
