Save the World | Homebase Status Report 2.15.2022

The Fortnite Team
Greetings Commanders,

As some of you may have already noticed, the Save the World playlist has made its new home in the Discover menu!

To find the newly relocated Save the World playlist, select the 'Change' button in the Fortnite main lobby and navigate to the 'By Epic' row or your 'Recently Played'. It can also be found in your ‘Favorites’ row if you chose to add it there.

Now that Save the World has joined the rest of Fortnite in Discover, the Game Mode Select Screen has been removed.

Along with its move to Discover, Save the World is now playable in Performance Mode! Performance mode allows Fortnite to run better than ever before and maintain a smoother frame rate, even on less powerful hardware. Read about Performance Mode to learn more. Direct X 11 is still the most reliable and recommended mode.
Fortnite Performance Mode Under Advanced GraphicsSave the World is now playable in performance mode!

One more thing before we formally kick off this Status Report. Many Commanders have enjoyed the original Save the World Lobby Track for years now! This track would play when no other Lobby Track was selected in your Locker. Unfortunately, that soothing tune seems to have disappeared recently...Well Commanders we have an update on that! To restore what was lost, the original Save the World Lobby Track will be granted to each and every one of you; it will be added to your Locker as soon as you log into Save the World.

For new players, the Save the World Lobby Track will be granted right after you complete the first mission. 

That was a lot to take in, and there is plenty more to go! Homebase Status Report - Initiate!
