Today, Epic released an update on Fortnite's Save the World mode. Originally intended to be going free at some point this year, the change of price point has now been postponed.
The delay was announced over on the official Epic website: "Scaling up for the legions of player heroes who will be joining the fight is key to providing an excellent experience. This applies to all of our players, old and new, so we're taking the time to get this right," reads the announcement.

Epic continues in the delay announcement: "For those of you who want to start playing right now, we've got you. Starting next week, we'll be hosting a 50% off sale for the Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder's packs," Elsewhere, Epic is overhauling the UI system for the co-op mode.
"You'll have a total of six Hero slots to manage up from the previous three. First choosing a main Hero to command and up to five additional which will determine your perks and traits," Epic revealed. "We're looking to expand the variety of loadouts you can create - putting the tools in your hands to make meaningful new decisions."
