Fortnite Battle Royale received its third major update of Chapter 4, Season 1, on Tuesday, January 31. The update has added many new things to the popular video game, including another Dragon Ball collaboration.
However, besides the things that have been released in the game, Epic Games has prepared some new features that will be released in the future. One of these features is inspired by Grand Theft Auto, another popular video game.
This article will reveal everything you need to know about the upcoming feature. It's based on the wanted system from GTA, and players can use Gold for it.
The New Fortnite feature is very similar to a feature in Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto players are familiar with the wanted system as it's one of the key features in the video game. This feature indicates how much the police want the player. The wanted level is measured in stars, and the more stars the player has, the more challenging it is to escape the police.
A single star is generally easy, and players can avoid it easily. However, a five-star wanted level is challenging, and even the army will join the manhunt for the player. In the past, GTA players could reach a six-star wanted level, but it's been reduced to five stars with Grand Theft Auto V.
Based on HYPEX, the most popular Fortnite leaker, Epic Games is working on adding a wanted system to its popular battle royale game. The system is still in its early stages, but the data miner has shared some details about it.
Players can pay 100 Gold to reduce the heat and decrease their wanted level. Additionally, Epic will release a unique quest for the new feature, which will most likely require Fortnite players to escape the manhunt.
The tweet by HYPEX shows an upcoming skin as well.
At the moment, no one knows precisely how the new Fortnite feature will work. However, there is a chance that the wanted player will be chased by all the other players, making the game much more intense.
Additionally, the new feature may completely replace the Bounty system. The system has been active since Chapter 2, Season 5.
When will the new feature come out?
The release date of the upcoming feature has not yet been revealed. However, considering that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 will end in early March, there is a chance that Epic Games will release it in the second season of the current chapter.
Furthermore, it's important to note that Epic may scrap the leaked Fortnite feature. This has happened a few times, so it's almost impossible to tell when the feature will come out.
