Fortnite: Chapter 4 is out now, with many major changes to the gamer-favorite battle royale and a new island after the explosion of the previous one. Another epic in-game moment from Epic Games.
The most notable change is the new island, which, as reported by The Verge includes a number of new points of interest, such as a citadel that houses a character known as “El Eterno”, a mine filled with a new material called kinetic mineral and a kind of abandoned farm.
The game also brings the new cross bikes, called “trail thrasher” in Fortnite. Another eye-catching novelty is the ability to roll around in a giant snowball, “reality augmentations” that give you random buffs as the match progresses, blowing up jellyfish that can restore your health.
Regarding weapons, we have a new rifle that shoots blades and a melee weapon called a “shockwave hammer”.
Geralt of Rivia lands on the island
The lucky ones who buy this season’s Battle Pass will be able to unlock Doom Slayer from Doom and Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher. Original Fortnite characters also arrive, such as the skater Massai or the very Hulk.
The previous chapter of Fortnite launched almost exactly a year ago and introduced features like a Zero Build mode, a live event featuring a giant pink robot, and collaborations with dozens of brands from Ralph Lauren to Dragon Ball.
About the video game, Epic Games explained that with Chapter 4 they moved to Unreal Engine 5.1which means that a number of high-end visual features, including high-quality ray tracing and more realistic lighting, will now be available to players on PC and coming soon to next-gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X. .
