EPIC Games have launched Chapter 2 in Fortnite, which comes with a completely new map, new Battle Pass with updated leveling system, as well as a number of gameplay additions.
The new map, called simply A New World, features 13 new locations and a number of rivers. With the high amount of rivers comes the number of water gameplay features, including swimming, fishing, motorboats and more. The developers also added few options to support your squad, including healing with the bandage bazooka and carrying fallen teammates to safety. The new map contains more interactive objects, including haystacks and dumpsters that allow players to hide in them, as well as gas tanks and explosive barrels that can be blown up by firing at them. Besides that, there is a number of special stations that allow players to upgrade their weapons in exchange for resources. The new Battle Pass has an upgraded leveling system, which provides more ways to level up.
The previous season has ended with a live event, during which the previous map was consumed by a black hole.
