A member of the Epic Games development team has announced via Reddit that the they are making some improvements to the current ’emotes’ in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Emotes are very popular shop items in Fortnite, with new dance moves, boasts and funny actions for your character to perform in the main lobby, the spawn island and during matches.
The emotes include popular dances such as the ‘Shoot’ dance, and ‘making it rain’, where your character will spray notes from their hands.
But as Epic Games continues to look for improvements where possible, they are now adding facial expressions to a number of popular emotes.
As opposed to the previous blank stares that the characters held, they will now smile or grimace depending on the type of emote.
And Epic also said that all future emotes added to the game will have facial expressions too.
“We’re always working to improve those cosmetics you throw on before hopping into a match, and one way we have added to our emotes is through facial animations. A few of our current emotes have received a makeover featuring new expressions that were previously blank stares.”
The full list of emotes which now have facial expressions:
An example of one of these expressions can be seen below, as the character sticks their tongue out on the ‘Freestylin’ emote.
