Social Tags and Looking For Party

This new update will be testing out some new features; Social Tags and a new Looking for Party invites. These features won't be available for everyone right away, but will instead be rolled out gradually to all players depending on the state of the test.

Social Tags allow players to select tags based on their favorite game mode, your gameplay style (Chill, Mic Off, Mic On, etc.), and preferred competitive events. Players will also be recommended Fortnite experiences based on their social tags.

Once players have at least one social tag, they'll be able to send party invites to and receive party invites from players with matching tags within the same server region. These party invites can be sent from the new Looking For Party section in the Sidebar.

Reality Sapling Balance Changes

Adjustments have been made to the amount of Reality Fruit each Reality Sapling produces, based on its rarity. Saplings will now grow:

  • 3 fruits when Uncommon or Rare
  • 2 fruits when Epic
  • 1 fruit when Legendary or Mythic

Visualized Audio Adjustments

Reduced the detection radius of the “Visualize Sound Effects” indicator for footsteps, Chests, and vehicles to better match the distance when that sound would be audible. This will mean the source of these sounds will need to be closer before appearing on the HUD.

Competitive Notes

  • The Darth Vader boss, Darth Vader’s Lightsaber, Stormtroopers, and E-11 Blasters are not included in competitive playlists.
