PATCH 16.1.0


  • Crescent Falls (Map 02) got a new EVAC platform
    • This change makes the EVAC on Crescent Falls more dynamic and exciting as it is not possible anymore to make a direct go for the ship with a bike. You need to use your surroundings to your advantage now and we hope that this change makes the EVAC on map 2 more fun.
  • New Player Buffs 
    • In order to make new player’s experience with the game slightly more of a success story and help them in getting to the real fun aspects of the game, we have added slight multipliers to new players’ income in credits and suit XP for their first few matches.
    • This will help new players in their first drops onto the rough world of Fortuna III.

Please remember:

We are still in Early Access even though Season Three has started. The game is still in development. This means that bugs and crashes are to be expected.

If you find any issues during your session, please don’t hesitate to report it using the bug reporter tool in-game.

Please also keep in mind that queue times, especially late in the night might be longer than expected due to lower player count around these times.

We hope you have fun during your time on Fortuna III and look forward to reading your feedback!
