The last replace to constructing is a minor change to how the sport’s networking works. Put merely, Epic’s servers not should be consulted as you cycle by the totally different constructing items, which Epic says ought to end in a smoother, extra predictable course of. Update three.zero.zero will solely add this to Battle Royale, however Epic says it would come to Save the World sooner or later sooner or later.
