This week, Fortnite Chapter 2 quietly fixed its big XP problem – which Eurogamer wrote about in detail on Monday.
In a nutshell, Fortnite fans had worked out you would need to play an extraordinary number of games to fill out your Season 2 Chapter 1 Battle Pass – and in a new season whose tagline is “More Fun, Less Grind”.
Last weekend, developer Epic Games activated a “Supercharged XP” system which quadrupled match XP. And now, as of this week’s 11.01 update, the same kind of quadrupling has gone into the game permanently. Fans are very happy.
