Fortnites skin fade was “a big issue,” according to one of the creators of the popular multiplayer game.
In an interview with Game Informer, Nathan Kojima, creator of the iconic shooter, revealed that the skin fade issue was “really, really bad,” and that he would be working on a fix “soon.”
“It’s a big deal,” Kojimas said.
That’s crazy. “
The skins are like, like, literally, two million pieces in the game, and we’re like, ‘Holy shit.
That really needs to be fixed.'”
It wasn’t just Kojims original estimate of 2 million pieces, but he later went as far as to estimate a 1 million-piece skin drop.
“I actually didn’t even know it was happening,” he said.
In the interview, Kojimes also addressed a number of other concerns regarding the game’s performance and how much it costs.
“When you look at the games that have gone through the alpha, the stuff that’s really expensive to get into is like, [it’s] like $30,000 to $40,000 for a new skin, and that’s just a big part of what the average player is getting paid to spend,” he continued.
“For people who aren’t super experienced, the game will literally take a day to get done, and then they can get into the game and play for three to four hours and maybe get a skin.”
Kojimi did note that the game would likely see some additional content added, like new character skins.
“We’re going to have some new skins coming down the pipeline, but they’ll be more on the expensive side of things,” he revealed.
“If we do that, then we’ll definitely have the skins on a more regular basis, but it’s still not going to be all of them.”
In addition to new skins, Kajima also revealed that he plans to add “a bunch” of new game modes and a new mode in which players can play through a single-player campaign.
“As we get into development of the game [and] as the game gets bigger, we’re going out and we want to add modes and stuff that you’ll like and people are going to like,” he explained.
“So it’s like, I’m gonna do it all, so let’s do it.”
He also teased that he was also “planning to add a bunch of new modes to the game,” but declined to say what they were.
“That’s something we’ll have to get back to you on later,” he teased.
KojIMAS original estimate for skin fade?
“We were expecting to get it to be a million pieces and it was like two million, but then it just kind of dropped,” he added.
“But it’s not really something that I think is a huge deal, but I think it’s definitely something we’re looking at.”
