Fortnite Chapter 4 has brought plenty of new features and major improvements to the popular battle royale game. Based on recent leaks, it seems that Epic Games isn't planning on stopping this constant flow of new content, with brand new movement mechanics expected to be added soon.
As many players are already aware, Epic has added hurdling with the release of the new chapter. This new movement element allows players to quickly jump over low obstacles, which can be incredibly useful in multiple situations.
The latest leak reveals three new gameplay mechanics that will likely be released into Epic Games' title. Considering how great these mechanics are, we expect them to completely change how Fortnite's currently played.
Reliable leaker reveals that three new Fortnite movement mechanics will come to the game
Besides hurdling, Epic Games has added dirt bikes to the newest season of their popular video game. Several other mobility features are also available in Chapter 4, such as the Shockwave Hammer, Shockwave Bows, ziplines, and more.
Interestingly, the developers are looking to fully utilize the power of Unreal Engline 5 with several new movement mechanics. HYPEX, the most popular Fortnite leaker within the community, revealed three new movement mechanics that are expected to be added into Fortnite.
It turns out that players will soon be able to perform wall running in the game. This will be a fantastic addition that allows players to surprise enemies by attacking them from different angles.
This leaked movement feature will force players to change the way they play the game as well, since enemies will also be attacking from multiple sides. The image in the tweet above reveals what Fortnite's wall running feature could look like.
HYPEX previously revealed that Epic Games has been working on adding a double jump to Fortnite. In fact, this feature was leaked a few months ago, with many players and leakers speculating that Epic would add it to the game with the release of Chapter 4, which ultimately did not happen.
This movement element is available in Fortnite: Save the World, and it would be interesting to see how battle royale players use it.
Finally, the development team has also worked on adding a jump slide mechanic. While there aren't many details available regarding this, it's possible that players will be able to slide in mid-air.
Expected release date for new content
Unfortunately, the release date of these leaked Fortnite movement mechanics has not yet been revealed. However, there's a good chance that Epic Games will release them with the first major update of the new season.
Considering that most Fortnite updates are released on Tuesdays, the next one may be dropped on December 13. Furthermore, this update will most likely release the new Winterfest event.
