'Fortnite' Season 4 Is Here And The World Has Changed Forever

'Fortnite' Season 4 Is Here And The World Has Changed Forever

With Season 4 of Fortnite Epic Games made a decision to add two new locations to the map in Dusty Divot and Risky Reels.

The long rumoured meteor has finally crashed into the map, altering its landscape. In its place is Dusty Divot, a huge crater surrounded by glowing "hop rocks", which place players in a low gravity orbit. A brand new battle pass offers fresh challenges for you to tackle, which means there are a host of new rewards such as skins, emotes, and, for the first time, sprays.

However, Epic Games is doing its best not to unveil any exciting news about the upcoming season and this is leaving fans wanting for more which we have to admit that is a great marketing technique.

It's worth noting that to find any of these things you'll need to have the Season 4 Battle Pass.

Servers are now back up so update away and download the update in game to get back onto the Battle Bus. Those that purchased the Season 3 Battle Pass will begin the new season with 5 free tiers following the purchase of Season 4's Battle Pass. Players are already gathering to investigate the new scenic features, many pausing during hostilities to gawp at the changes.

The Fortnite season 4 release date is May 1, 2018.

It turns out, the rumors were real, but we won't see any of that in the Battle Royale Mode.

In battle royale, only one team or player can come out on top, so unless you are one of the top players worldwide you are winning less than 8-10% of your matches.

One big question was whether the Tilted Towers location would survive the comet strike. However, the Fortnite Season 4 theme is still not known, and details would start rolling over as Season 4 is adopted massively. Now Dusty Divot, the location just to the right of the map's centre now resembles a bombsite.

But that's not all the skins you're going to get during the ten week season. Every single game in Fortnite provides a new sequence of events to traverse to try and win the game, which makes you as the player feel like you have options such as what to carry in your inventory or what path to take to the circle.

Players were reportedly being hit by damaging meteorites in the run-up to the Season 4 downtime.
