One player might’ve been given a sneak preview into the upcoming mode during today’s long-awaited Doomsday event. It’s possible that there’s some other explanation, but the most likely one is that Epic is working on implementing an option for first-person perspective in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Epic could be adding the feature as a completely separate game mode, perhaps without the crafting elements of the normal third-person mode. Or a simple switch in the settings menu could toggle on and off the first-person mode.
Along with potentially leaking a first-person mode, the event also brought the massive storm that circles the map and herds players together is now entirely underwater.
