I really like the way everything looked on those pictures : ). Will the option for personalizations be available for both, Save the World and Battle Royale? I really enjoy both but lately I'm playing more Save the World and I would like to know. If personalization will be in both, will the things we buy on one of the modes carry to the other mode : ) or we will have to buy it again : (? Thanks.

Customization is limited to Battle Royale and does not transfer over into the Save the World Campaign.

Okay, I really need to apologize for slamming on them in a BETA, especially when they come out with this massive update.

I mean I’ve yet to try it out, but wow, what a list and every bit of that list sounds like a a christmas list.

They really took the feedback to heart. Again my apologies and mad props.

No need to apologize. We're doing what we can to make sure we have a game people can enjoy. Sometimes we'll hit the mark and other times we won't see eye-to-eye.
 
At the end of the day, we all just want the best game possible.

So if we buy skins can we choose the character they go to? Or does it still give you a random character every time just now with the skin you purchased? I really hope you can choose a character to play as every time.

The outfit you purchase it tied to the character model it's purchased on. When you equip it, it will be that character model + outfit.

So its safe to say now that two of my favorite and most played (eventually, ill get there with fortnite) PS4 games were FREE. This and Rocket League.

👍 That's what I like to hear! Psyonix are great folks (and Unreal Engine devs so added bonus). We love those guys -- Rocket League is awesome.

Revert the FPS changes. I know its trial and error but after such amazing patch notes theres a few full r... Moments here.

My game ran at locked 60 fps. To penalize me and half my experience when i Paid to support the game for no reason is a weird move.

Seriously everyone was happy with performance. If your note said added option of uncapping framerate and you didnt secretely lock it uncapped (we would be able to tell) then it would be cool.

So yeah add the option to unlock framerate at user discretion. The f is the point of having a powerful console if we cant get any improvements ingame.

Thats my main concern secondly would be add some form of weekly currency via winning with a cap so people still spend real money.

Progression looks awesome especially the level system i suggested this a while back. Now add a way for everyones level to be seen other than in squad for more mastery showing off.

Amazing developer. Amazing patch. Just hoping you guys see the feedback and adjust so this game can be the best of its potential. Nobodys lynching for the fps nerf but it shows its unwarranted and thats what feedbacks for.

Gg

We provided some detailed, technical information on the FPS change: Link
 

TLDR: We're really, really sorry to players who appreciated the higher frame rates under certain conditions. Unlocking frame rate was an accidental change with some unusual benefits and drawbacks. We feel that capping consoles to 30 fps will provide the best experience based on our internal metrics and blind play testing. We’ll be looking forward to your feedback and continually working to make the experience awesome!
 
In addition, we are also working on improvements over the next couple of weeks, including locking the “front end” UI and lobby screens at 60fps, and investigating adding a “display options” menu on consoles.

How do you change your character? I see the locker & outfit part but no character select.

If you have purchased an outfit, you can choose that outfit in the Locker.

Can anyone tell me how much each skin will cost?

I posted the general pricing structure here.
