Fortnite just got a brand new map as part of its latest chapter launch. With the new battle royale island, Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 also adds new weapons, powers, and a new battle pass that includes Doom Slayer and Geralt of Rivia. The season started about a day after the Chapter 3 final event and will run until March 10.
As for gameplay changes, Epic has added a whole arsenal of new weapons for players to use, as well as a new motocross vehicle. Perhaps the biggest change in the new season is the reality boosts that give every player in the match a random upgrade like faster reloads for certain gun types, special weapons, or the ability to redeploy your glider. These upgrades occur randomly during each match, and players will collect more random boosts as the match goes on.
The battle pass includes many original skins and some video game icons this time around. Players who purchase the pass will gain access to the Doom Slayer, the protagonist of Loss (2017), as well as Geralt de Riv from The Witcher series later in the pass.
As usual, the Battle Pass will cost 950 V-Bucks (around $9.50) and include the ability to unlock all of the pass’ premium rewards. There will also be a free version of the pass with a limited set of rewards, which can be upgraded at any time to unlock everything you’ve earned so far.
We don’t know how long FortniteThe new chapter of might last, but Epic has been making chapters shorter and shorter lately. While the first two chapters lasted almost two years each, Chapter 3 will end almost exactly one year after its release – but it’s still too early to tell if that’s Epic’s plan for future chapters.
