Fortnite, despite being great, isn’t perfect.
Players have a variety of criticism and feedback about certain elements, audio consistently being one category that many players feel needs improvement.
Epic Games has been listening and is back with a solution to many problems, revealing upcoming updates that will offer better distinction between footstep sound effects, improved spatialization, and more.
Many shooting games rely on visual and audio cues to help players figure out where other players are located, but these are particularly important in battle royale titles, where players are likely to sneak up on someone else.
Epic says it plans to release some important audio updates in Season 6 that will help players better discern their environment.
The version 6.00 update will bring a greater contrast between footstep sounds that happen above and below the person.
