Fortnite launches Chapter 2 with new map after returning from black hole | Games

Fortnite started a new era this Tuesday (15th) with Chapter 2: the battle royale game now puts 100 players per game on a brand new map with more weapons and vehicles, mixing boats with rocket launchers. It will be possible to earn XP points for more types of activities; and, as always, there is a skins battle pass for your character.

The 10th season of Fortnite, called “The End”, ended this weekend with the appearance of a black hole that swallowed the island, leaving the game basically unusable for hours – there was nothing to do.

Now, with Chapter 2, Epic Games has released a brand new map for Fortnite: it has more forests, mountains and lakes to explore, instead of cities or urban locations.

The game features new vehicles like a boat and a pogo stick; allows fishing and swimming in the lakes; and offers more ways to hide from enemies by entering haystacks or dumps. There are also new weapons, such as a redesigned rocket launcher and a semi-automatic pistol.


Fortnite has battle pass with new skins

Epic Games promises “more fun, less repetition” in Fortnite. This means that you can gain experience by doing more types of activities, such as killing enemies or opening chests, making the process of accumulating XP less repetitive.

And, as always, there is a new battle pass to win character skins, weapons, backpacks, among others; it costs 950 V-Bucks, and you can earn 1,500 coins for free when you complete goals. “It’s enough to buy the next season’s battle pass and there are still V-Bucks left to spend at the item store,” says Epic.

The price of the package with 1,000 V-Bucks varies depending on the platform: you will pay R $ 30.90 on PlayStation 4 or R $ 37.90 on the iOS App Store, for example. The main game is free; 100 people are taken to an island on a flying bus, and whoever survives last is the winner.

Fortnite is available for Windows, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, iPhone and iPad.
