The company has released Fortnite v5.21 patch that brings some significant improvements to the game. Finally, the classic Save the World mode is getting the new Machinist Hero, Thora.

Not the biggest update, but the Heavy Sniper Rifle should be a handy item, and the Soaring 50s mode sounds like fun.

The update applies to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and mobile versions of the game, our sister site GameSpot notes.

Gliders can be re-deployed when falling from large heights.

Fortnite: Save the World gets a bit of love from the update too. It adds a new character called Thora, who "husks into traps and control areas when things get critical!"

We've identified the issue and are working towards a fix. Also, as per a checklist provided by Epic Games, "this incident has now been resolved and players should now be able to update".
