Epic Games are reportedly working on an offline version of Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the most popular video games of all time with millions of active players every day.
With over 400 million accounts and millions of concurrent players at any given time, the battle royale title is still going strong. A big reason for this is the constant updates that the Fortnite developer releases.
The game will probably become more popular very soon. According to several leakers, Epic Games is working on an offline version of Fortnite Battle Royale.
The offline version of Fortnite Battle Royale is reportedly in development
Epic Games has made Fortnite available in most countries around the world. Unfortunately, some players don’t have an optimal experience due to the lack of servers.
Many African players need to connect to European servers, making their lag unbearable. The situation in Asia is not perfect either, as many are forced to play with a high ping.
An offline version of Fortnite Battle Royale would be perfect for players dealing with ping issues. Fortunately, it appears to be in development.
Fortnite leaks discovered that Epic Games was developing something called “FortniteEDP”. This version of the game only includes the Zero Build mode and appears to be currently in development for the Japanese market.
Several prominent leakers including GMatrixGames believe this is an offline version of Fortnite Battle Royale. Although Epic hasn’t officially revealed anything about it, this is great news for all gamers dealing with connectivity issues.
This version of the game will not have real players. Instead, Fortnite players are placed in bot lobbies. These are perfect for practice, especially for new players. In addition, there is a possibility that the offline version will be played in the local network.
The offline version seems to be in an early stage of development. While it’s hard to say when it might release, it won’t come as a surprise if Epic Games saves it for Chapter 5.
