Epic Games' representative Erik Williamson shared some information about the upcoming Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update which will bring new areas to the original map as well as different biomes.

Those points of interest include the city, and more new named areas on the west side of the map. Williams explained that this was being done not only because the special event was now over but also to improve the balance in the game, with the addition of new points of interest already adding a bunch more locations for you to find that elusive Legendary Scar in.

Williamson said that the different "biomes" have been divided up more clearly, so as to help distinguish them from each other. That means the swamp will be "swampier", and the mountains will be more "mountainy".

Last but not least, the Fortnite Battle Royale Map Update will remove the existent Christmas trees along with the chests that were placed beside them. The quick two-minute development update goes over some high level changes you can expect to see when the Fortnite update goes live, with much more detailed patch notes expected to come sometime next week. The map is getting new spots to shake things up on the current map.
