In a move that will please both Fortnite Save the World and Fortnite Battle Royale Fans, Epic announced in its latest patch notes that the Combat Pro control scheme will be added to the Save the World PvE mode in today's update.
Currently, Fortnite features two distinct game modes, a battle royale mode and Fortnite Save the World, which is the original PvE game mode Fortnite shipped with. However, with the release of Fortnite Battle Royale, Epic streamlined the controls of the game for a more intuitive PvP experience. The control scheme was called Combat Pro and it was geared towards better combat.
In Save the World, the control scheme was a little more complex considering that Epic had to take into account unique character abilities. This is why Save the World had a fairly different control scheme that made switching between the two modes a little complicated.
This was highlighted recently by Fortnite Battle Royale players who complained that while they wanted to play Save the World, the discrepancy between the two control schemes made things incredibly difficult. When we reached out to Epic, the developers told us that Combat Pro controls would be coming to Save the World, though at the time we didn't get a release date.
The two modes that make up Fortnite haven't always gotten along. When Fortnite Battle Royale was announced, the moderators for the Fortnite subreddit felt it best to split the community with two distinct subreddits for each Fortnite mode. Even the fact that Battle Royale players want to play Save the World have drawn some animosity, with PvE players upset that Battle Royale players only wanted to play Save the World to farm V-bucks.
Still, this is good new for all Fortnite players who prefer the Combat Pro control scheme.
