Save the World | Homebase Status Report 12.1.2021

12.1.2021
By The Fortnite Team

Greetings Commanders,

Before we get started on this Status Report, there are a few things we want to take note of.

Word is it’s about to get pretty crazy over at the Battle Royale Island. Be sure to check out The End” blog for more details.

Recently, Commanders have gained the ability to earn Battle Pass XP for completing missions in Save the World! Each Season lasts specific amounts of time, some shorter (or longer) than others. This impacts the level of Battle Pass experience required to reach max level. Because of this, Commanders may see some adjustments to the Battle Pass XP earned in Save the World with each Season launch.

With that settled let’s jump right in, Homebase Status Report - Initiate !
