Last month, video game developer Epic Games launched a new mobile app called “Postparty”, allowing users to capture clips of Fortnite gameplay on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC. With this, users can then watch and share the clips to social media, and can also save the clips to their mobile devices.
Fortnite players may be able to engage themselves even further into the game’s world in the coming season, as the game is likely to introduce a first-person mode. According to reliable Fortnite source HypeX, the mode will be included as a part of the upcoming season of the game.
“Fortnite’s First Person mode is finally coming in NEXT SEASON,” it tweeted.
However, the new mode’s integration into the gameplay is unknown, but it is expected to keep players in first-person mode throughout the game. There are already a number of guns that offer a first-person view when aiming down the sights; however, a fully-fledged first-person mode would greatly enhance the game.
