Fortnite is one of the most popular games from Epic Games. It is an action-packed battle royale game where players need to fight against each other on an island with 100 players to become the winner. One of the reasons for its immense popularity is its constant introduction of new features and updates which keeps the game fresh even after all these years. One of the most latest features which might come to the game is the in-game text chat feature as revealed by a popular Fortnite data miner.
Leaks reveal a potential update in the Fortnite chatbox UI
According to the popular Fortnite leaker named iFireMonkey, a new chat box feature is coming in the future as revealed by him on Twitter. It is a very vital feature that would be very useful for many of its players who may have various reasons for not using the voice chat feature. Many players don’t own good mics, might not be in an environment where they can talk, or may just play with their volumes lowered.
Whatever the reason may be, the chat feature might not be used a lot of times for various reasons which makes it very difficult for communication to occur among the teammates, but with the addition of this new feature. This problem might be finally solved.
Things might go south with the in-game text chat update
One might wonder why Epic Games took so long to introduce such an important feature to Fortnite and why didn’t they do it beforehand. One should keep in mind that most of Fortnite’s player base is young and innocent kids, who might be wrongly influenced by people who might misuse this feature. Many people use slurs, cuss words or just destroy the experience for others with their malicious activities, they might do the same with this new chat feature too, now only time will tell how the developers plan on handling it.
It will also help players who have voice disabilities and they will finally be able to communicate with their teammates. So it looks like the advantages of this update might weigh out the disadvantages and now only time will tell when will the developers introduce it within the game.
