Fortnite content update 3.4 – Vending machines added to Battle Royale
FORTNITE VENDING MACHINES – UPDATE ONE: Fortnite vending machines are live in Battle Royale right now.
Fortnite fans will not need to install an update to use the vending machines as it’s part of the new content updates feature.
ORIGINAL: Fortnite players will be able to trade in spare materials in return for weapons thanks to the new vending machines feature added to Battle Royale.
The vending machines will be popping up across the Fortnite Battle Royale map, with each one offering three different things.
Rarities, items and different deals will all be chosen at random.
The Fortnite vending machines are coming in the V3.4 content update.
This is a new feature that Epic Games are starting from this week, which the Cary-based developer explained on the game’s official website.
In a blog post, the Fortnite team said: “Fortnite fans, starting this week, we are doing things a little differently.
“Every other week we will drop new content without the need for an update.
“These will be called Content Updates.
“This new cadence allows us to iron out more complex bugs, while continuing to provide fun content every week.”
While Epic Games did not reveal the release date for the Fortnite V3.4 content update, it looks to have rolled out today.
Fortnite fans have already on Twitter reported seeing vending machines on the Battle Royale map.
So, if you want to find out what’s in the latest Fortnite update check out the full patch notes below.
