Epic Games’ Fortnite is back with another season in the game, this time named Chapter 3. This chapter introduces several changes to the game, and many exciting things unfolded at the launch event.
The Fortnite map has now been flipped entirely as a part of Chapter 3, Season 1. There is a fresh, snow-covered island that features weather conditions, along with new locations like Sanctuary — which appears to play a large part in Fortnite lore — and the Daily Bugle.
This season brings a lot of collaborations that Epic Games has done. The most reputable of them is Spider-Man and The Rock (Dwayne Johnson). Players will get the Spider-Man skin very soon, along with The Foundation who The Rock has voiced. Spider-Man has collaborated since Marvel Studios is about to launch Spider-Man No Way Home and Spider-Man Into The Spiderverse. It is still unclear why The Rock is onboard, though.
Epic Games has also brought some new mechanic changes into the new season. “This new chapter brings camps, where players and their squad can heal and store items from match to match — bringing new persistent, social gameplay options to Fortnite. Plus, there are new weapons and items to help win a victory royale and earn the all-new, ultimate prestige — the Victory Crown. Keep winning to keep the crown.” said the developer.
This season also introduces swinging and sliding mechanics, inspired by Spider-Man. This will make travelling across the massive map even faster and enhance the experience quite a bit.
It is pretty hard to believe that Chapter 2 was launched in 2019, and that season brought the game quite a bit of success. It will be interesting to see how this season shapes up and what Epic Games holds for us in the future!
