Fortnite Retail Row

Epic Games' 10.10 update for Fortnite is now available to download, and its patch notes share everything that's new including Retail Row and World Run.

Following yesterday's last minute delay for update version 10.10 and its patch notes for Fortnite, Epic Games has duly released the patch and it can now be downloaded. The patch notes disclose information pertaining to Retail Row and an LTM named World Run, and you can find the entirety of Epic Games' patch notes below.

Fortnite update version 10.10 patch notes:

Retail Row

A Rift Zone has turned Mega Mall back into Retail Row, and prices have dropped significantly. These discounts come at the cost of increased danger — bargain-crazed Fiends are spawning in the Rift Zone, and they want the shopping center all to themselves.

World Run LTM

Dip, dodge, and duck through treacherous traps, lava pits, and more to become the world's fastest lane runner. 16 players race to complete the course. The first team to collect 30 coins wins!

Limited Time Modes

World Run LTM

Team Type: Squads | Respawning: On

EVENTS

Original story:

Season 10 for Fortnite has arrived and Battle Royale participants are not entirely thrilled with how things have panned out so far. Not only is there accusations that the game is holding people hostage more than ever before, there's also been countless complaints about the BRUTE mechs being overpowered thanks to their huge chunks of health and ability to skyrocket across the map. Oh, and they also have a powerful missile barrage attack that makes them more OP than a roided-out Brock Lesnar against cruiserweights. The only saving grace gamers have had to anticipate is the 10.10 update, but its release and patch notes have been delayed at the "last minute".

There's been a lot of sensational news pertaining to Fortnite this week. World Cup winner Sen Bugha was swatted live on Twitch, and streamers have boycotted the Battle Royale title because they can't cope with repeatedly having their butt whooped by the BRUTE mechs.

However, what'll upset some people the most is that Epic Games' 10.10 update has been delayed. With this delay happening at the very last minute, when can we expect to see the update and its patch notes arrive?

Fortnite Season 10 Mechs

Fortnite season 10 overpowered mechs boycott

Because everyone loved it when the Avengers fought a million identical robots with little-to-no personality in Age Of Ultron, Epic Games thought it would be a neat idea to bring BRUTE mechs to Fortnite season 10.

But, while the idea might have been good on paper, there's been a teensy tiny issue with the employment of these mechs: they're freakin' overpowered!

Pretty much everyone has complained about the OP nature of Epic Games' BRUTEs, and this has resulted in a number of popular streamers boycotting the multiplayer title.

Dexerto reports that two of the most notable streamers are Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins and Ben 'Dr Lupo 'Lupo; two highly influential online celebrities who have decided to play PUBG until Epic Games nerfs the machines.

Ninja doesn't believe that the stubborn Epic Games will remove mechs from Fortnite, meaning it could be awhile before the streamer returns to the colourful Battle Royale playground.

When will Epic Games release update 10.10 for Fortnite?

Ninja and other streamers boycotting Fortnite is only terrible news if you tune into their live matches, but news that affects everyone is the delay of update 10.10.

Scheduled to be available to download on August 13, Epic Games tweeted last night that they had indefinitely delayed the update thanks to discovering some last minute issues.

As you can imagine, the responses on Twitter were less than favourable.

Some people chose to look on the bright side of them not releasing the update as a buggy mess, but the vast majority of users took the moment to continue complaining about the mechs.

Epic Games failed to indulge when the next update will arrive, but hopefully its delay won't last an unreasonable amount of time.

The patch notes for update 10.10 will be posted here when they're available.
