Players longing for a first-person camera mode in Fortnite might finally have their prayers answered. According to a reliable Fortnite source, the massively popular battle royale game may finally be getting an option for players to switch views from the traditional third-person camera.
The option to play the game in first-person mode has never yet been possible in Fortnite, something that has always set the game apart from similar battle royale titles that operate as first-person shooters. However, it seems as though this may become an option for players who prefer their action directly over the barrel of their weapon.
According to prominent Fortnite leaks source and data miner HYPEX, Epic Games are apparently working on a first-person camera mode right now. It’s clearly early days, but it’s news that seems to have gone down pretty well with the community either way.
While this information hasn’t been confirmed in any official capacity, it wouldn’t be the first time that HYPEX has tweeted out information that’s later turned out to be correct. It’s clearly a potentially popular move, with the tweet already receiving almost 15,000 likes and plenty of hyped replies. We’ll just have to wait and see if Epic gives any kind of confirmation on this and whether or not the FPS mode actually makes its way into the game. It does appear to only be in the very early stages of development if HYPEX’s information turns out to be accurate.
Elsewhere, Fortnite’s newest season has just got underway. Chapter 3: Season 3 launched yesterday and has brought a variety of changes to the island, both in terms of exploration zones and weapons. There’s also a brand new Battle Pass for players to work their way through, with Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins on the way pretty soon as well. It looks like there’s plenty more to come from the world’s most famous battle royale game.
