After the recent updates on the iconic battle royale game, we’re just about getting our heads around the new, introduced changes and capabilities of the game in the current season. Now that the Holiday season is over and Fortnite's Winterfest challenges are ending, we are awaiting the start date of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2!
When does Fornite Chapter 2 Season 2 Start?
Confirmation from Epic games have stated that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 has been extended for an extra 2 months which will mean season 2 will start in February 2020. From now up until that point you can check out all the latest game features, free rewards and live experiences on the Epic Fortnite blog.
What to expect in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2?
A New Map
While the original Fornite map changed periodically, chapter 2 introduces a brand-new island for the battle royale mode. Users can use their new environment to interact in different ways such as new swimming effects and the ability to hide in tight spaces such as barrels and haystacks.
The new map also has a lot more water and features boats as a new vehicle option. Players are able to carry teammates on the back of their boats to bring them to safety!
Reduced Amount of Weapons
Epic has removed a large amount of weapons from the game in an aim to simplify the games fire fights, leaving players with more of a basic selection to choose from. These weapons are still powerful and you can now upgrade your weapons by finding upgrade benches within the map.
Improvements to Fornites Battle Pass system
Fortnite Chapter 2 makes it easier to track your progress with screen notifications which appear whilst you play, making goals easier to reach. Players can purchase the battle pass for 950 V-bucks and if you are dedicated enough, you can gain up to 1,500 V bucks with the battle pass, which would be enough to buy the next seasonal battle pass!
Fortnite’s Chapter 2 is a great opportunity for new and existing players to take part in the game. The new maps features and improved battle pass system will help new players learn the game with ease whilst ensure existing players can develop their Fortnite battle skills!
