Even with declining Twitch viewership numbers, Fortnite continues to be a dominant force in gaming thanks to its ever-evolving world and consistent updates.

Do you play Fortnite?

As this feature remains available, we'll begin making quality of life changes to its functionality. Now, if you're thinking that balloons don't sound like a particularly exciting addition to Fortnite: Battle Royale, you'd be wrong. A pickup contains 20 balloons, and you can hold six of those at a time. Would you consider giving it a go now that balloons have been added?

Hidden amongst loads of new updates about balloons and various bug fixes, there's a note about how the game will change on Nintendo Switch with this patch. What we do know is that players will use them to gain altitude.

Only pilgrims have been allowed on the main road leading to the monastery since last year's attack. The Sohag bus had 28 pilgrims, of whom 9 were wounded, including two in serious condition.

Although Halloween has now come and gone, the Fortnitemares event is still active for a few more days. With Fortnitemares ending officially on November 4 at 1pm Eastern Time, Epic recommends that players have all challenges complete and be in a match at that exact time to witness a special event. Finish all the challenges and unlock the Dark Engine Glider that will bring along some Back to the Future vibes.

Check out the full update notes on the Fortnite site.

Balloons arrive in Fortnite today with the v6.21 patch.
