In terms of the gameplay, the biggest addition in this update are Balloons which will essentially let players float away on the battlefield. The blog from Epic Games reads, “Blow em up and float away, this new addition lets you get around like never before.” Players need to be careful though, Balloons will not carry them across the map, and will pop when they reach their maximum height.
