Season 6 of Fortnite is underway, and with it comes many changes--perhaps the most popular so far (and infamous) is a "bug" causing unintended breast physics.

Twitter user @Agony had his tweet go viral after showcasing this issue:

As you can see in the Tweet above, Calamity's dance adds a bit more realism to the overly-cartoony game. Alas, this unfortunate bug was quickly removed from the game.

Kotaku reports an Epic spokesperson said:

 
 
“This is unintended, embarrassing, and it was careless for us to let this ship,” they said. “We are working now to fix this as soon as possible.”
Breast physics aside, Fortnite also launched Season 6 today, and breast physics weren't this season's only problems. Shadow Stones, a new consumable, can be found in various locations on the map. Using the Shadow Stone applies "Shadow Form" which gives you various gameplay benefits such as being invisible, granting movement speed, jump height, and a new primary fire ability to name a few.

As cool as it sounds, this inclusion was removed too due to some issues. There isn't a timeline as to when this will be fixed. Epic also reports there were crashes for Xbox One players, which at the time of this writing, are now resolved.

An announcement by Epic Games mentions additions to Season 6 that are par for the course:

With the new season comes a new Battle Pass, with 100 levels and more than 100 rewards. New rewards include Pets -- players can now have a friend watch their back when they drop in!
While you won't find breast physics in Fortnite anymore, there should be plenty more features that'll make you just as happy in Season 6.


 
 

Quick Take

You can't be disappointed with Epic on this one. You've got a game with a large audience of younger-aged players. It would be very bad for business if they kept breast physics--as harmless as it may be--in the game. In addition to the removal of Shadow Stones and Xbox One issues, you've got yourself a rocky launch for Season 6.
