Fortnite Update 17.10 has hit live servers, bringing with it plenty of changes and new content for the game. Without official patch notes from Epic Games, players are left to figure out what's new and different for themselves, but some of these changes are obvious, and some are more exciting than others. Here are our picks for the three biggest changes in the latest Fortnite update.

1. Exploring the Mother Ship

Season 7's alien elements have only grown more prominent, and now the Mother Ship itself is an explorable location. Inside, players can find points of interest that have been abducted in the past, including Lucky Landing and Butter Barn. This trip down memory lane, placed in the context of a massive alien ship, is a thrill special to Fortnite.

2. Inflate-A-Bull

This oddball item is a suit players can find and wear that gives them "cow-like properties," according to the official description. Which cow-like properties, you ask? Well, the ability to roll down hills, bounce off cliffs, and "be impervious to fire." Just classic cow stuff.

3. Cosmic Summer Kicks Off

Because the Fortnite ethos is "everything, all the time," Epic Games has decided to combine its alien invasion with the classic summer beach party. This new event, Cosmic Summer, brings plenty of summer-themed skins, free rewards, and a welcome dose of the extraterrestrial.
