Fortnite for Android: the news of version 5.40
As usual, the most recent update was to stabilize the gaming system to ensure the best level of performance for all users. To enjoy a new optimization, however, are the devices that integrate the Adreno GPU, afflicted by a slowdown caused by the management of RAM.
As for the new features, the big news is the support for voice chat, pre-announced a few weeks ago by the developers. The voice chat will allow players of the same team to communicate during the game, to develop their tactics and guide the team to the coveted Vittoria Reale.
It also improves the quality of the audio sector, through the implementation of some fixes for the mixer, and the user interface, which now allows players to move the health bar to their liking – preventing it from hindering the gaming experience.
There are also several new features regarding game content such as new weapons and PvP modes. In this regard, we refer to the changelog published on the official website of Epic Games.
