The developer has admitted the strategy has “remained mostly unchanged” across the game’score modes since its launch two years ago, but the next update will look to shake things up.

In a blog post, the studio revealed:

“In the v10.40 update, we’re introducing improved matchmaking logic to Battle Royale core modes to create fairer matches.”

“What does this mean? You will be more likely to match with players of similar skill, and as you get better, so should your opponents.

“We will slowly roll this out to all regions across Battle Royale core modes as we test and monitor how it performs.

“We’re excited to get this out for everyone to play with and will continue to update the system.”

Meanwhile, Epic also confirmed Bots are coming to ‘Fortnite’ as part of a change to work alongside the latest updates for matchmaking.

The company explained:

“In the next Season, we are adding Bots to ‘Fortnite’.

“They will behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for players to grow in skill.

“Bots will work in conjunction with the new matchmaking system, and as your skill improves, you’ll face fewer Bots.

“Bots will not be present in Competitive playlists. This is another system that we will continue to update and iterate.”
