Finally, Epic Games responded to those calls with the latest v12.50 update. The patch addressed a lot of these issues, including nerfing certain OP guns and aim-assist for controller players on PC. They also introduced a new no-violence social mode called Party Royale. Meanwhile, the Travis Scott virtual concert was a massive success, registering astronomical numbers with players flocking to the game for the events.
