Epic games has decided to move the free-to-play launch of Save the World out of this current year.
As indicated by Epic games they’re working on a broad set of features, reworks, and backend system scaling that epic think needs to go free-to-play. In a latest blog post, they went into more profundity about their plans for the game’s Front End and Hero system:
FRONT END IMPROVEMENTS
The front-end UI should feel more like an integrated and understandable part of the game. Bringing the inventory into the front-end earlier this year was the first step, but the upcoming revamp will push things even further.

We’re reorganizing menu options to make them easier to find and converting some old UI tutorial quests to use a new callout system. Additionally, we’re adding polish and character(s) to the menus. At the end of this revamp we want to move more of your Fortnite experience into the game rather than in the front-end. We’ll release an in-depth look at all these incoming changes in the next few weeks, to prepare for the rollout in the next few months.

NEW HERO SYSTEM
We’re excited to announce a brand new updated Hero System! This system has been redesigned to offer a more flexible approach to customizing your loadout with more options and room for creativity. You’ll have a total of six Hero slots to manage up from the previous three. First choosing a main Hero to command and up to five additional which will determine your perks and traits. We’re looking to expand the variety of loadouts you can create – putting the tools in your hands to make meaningful new decisions. We’ll put together a comprehensive blog to run you through the system, when we finalize all the details.
Beginning this week, epic games is facilitating 50% off sale for the Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder’s packs. Save the world most ghoulish event of the year Fortnitemares is also back this week. You may notice some changes if you played the last year’s event. Old Heroes are returning alongside numerous new faces.
