The arrival of the patch 12.61 to Fortnite on may 26, 2020 not only brought new content, and correction of multiple errors in the game, but also made the storm it began to behave strangely and erratically. However, this is not a bugbut that has to do with the plot of the Season 2 the Pass Battle of Fortnite Chapter 2, which is about to come to an end. I tell you everything below:

Fortnite: the storm is behaving weird after the patch 12.61

The Storm in Fortnite Battle Royale is the main danger in all games. Determines what area of the game is secure, and in which we sustained damage with the passage of time. We must avoid it at all costs if you don’t want us to eat and we end up killing.

We see how the Storm is about

Its behavior is simple: when we enter into a game of Fortnite Battle Royale, a huge circle mark out the safe area, in that we do not suffer damage from the Storm. As the game progresses, that circle will be smaller, and will be changing of placeby forcing the players to move forward.

However, all this has changed after the arrival of the patch 12.61 to Fortnite Battle Royale. When you enter a game after you have applied this update of content to the game, we can see results such as the following:

Effectively, a circle is so large as to cover almost the whole map and neither fit in the same is not normal. However, we have learned that this only happens in the game modes casual: Solo, Duos and Bands. It does not happen in the lists of game competitiveas Sand Alone, and Sand Duets.

From this we can deduce that this is not a error of the game, but something intentional that has to do with the story of Season 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2. As you already know, Midas has created a Device of the Final Judgment in The Agency. Using this machine, your objective is to stop the Storm. And, for now, it seems that in a good way.

All of this is nothing but another way to create expectation of face in the event of the end of the Season 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2to be held at the following time slots on Saturday may 30, 2020:

  • Spain (peninsula and Balearic islands): 20:05 the Saturday, may 30
  • Spain (Canary islands): 19:05 on Saturday, 30th may
  • Argentina, Chile and Uruguay: 17:05 on Saturday, 30th may
  • United States and Venezuela: 16:05 Saturday 30th may
  • Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico: 14:05 on Saturday, 30th may

We get a slight idea of what will happen in such an event, since we have managed to filter the audio for the same:

The activation of the Device of the Final Judgment will have consequences that will change the island completely. We will have to wait to Saturday 30 may to be able to check it within the game.
