Fortnite Chapter 2 has launched unveiling new areas and mechanics to Fortnite fans. It’s finally time for Chapter 2. Fans of the game have been itching for the last 36 plus hours to see what would happen to their beloved game, and out of the black hole came a whole new world to conquer.
Fortnite season 10 ended on Sunday afternoon when the entire Fortnite world was sucked into a black hole. After much speculation and deliberation Fortnite players woke early on Tuesday morning to the game’s second incarnation, a brand new map and many new changes. Fortnite Chapter 2 was launched by Epic Games at 6 a.m. EST and Season 11 began. Players can now drop into the latest Fortnite world and explore a new island with 13 locations.
A water-centric new installment means players have new swimming abilities, fishing objectives and boats. New characters with new healing powers, the ability to carry teammates and brand new celebration moves including high fives are only some of the new features released. There are also new hideouts of which one is a dumpster – new explosives and weapons.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 11 was set up fantastically by Epic Games. When players logged in around 2 p.m. ET last Sunday, they were anticipating the end of Season 10 and the beginning of Season 11. They could only access a single mode entitled: “The End.” Players loaded the game to find a handful of rifts and rockets showing up, and a large meteor crashing into Loot Lake. Next came an explosion, and the entire world was sucked into a giant rift, leaving behind nothing but a black hole in space.
Players could not play the game though by using a special code they could access a special mini-game. Players’ reactions were mixed ranging from excited to not pleased. Players were concerned about their items and V-Bucks, many contacting Epic Games’ support line in desperation. Fortnite is famously known for revamping their theme every few months, so what happened this week came as no surprise. It was definitely, by far, the most drastic stunt pulled by Epic Games so far. Fortnite has exploded in popularity worldwide, the Fortnite World Cup this year a massive success the number of registered accounts hitting 250 million players last March.
