The super-popular game known as Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat. Players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”
You’ll have to band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.
Meanwhile, Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus. The last one standing wins.
The highly anticipated Fortnite Chapter 4 is live and is now on Unreal Engine 5.1! The new Chapter also brings forth a completely new Island to explore, different ways to get around, and freshly-forged weapons as well as a brand new Battle Pass featuring Geralt of Rivia and Doom Slayer.
Here Are Just Some of the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 highlights:
- Explore a Brand New Island: After the events of Chapter 3’s Finale, a new Island has formed. New locations include a towering castle called The Citadel, nestled in the snowy mountains is Brutal Bastion, vast farmland in Frenzy Fields, and more.
- Augmented Abilities: At intervals in your match, you’ll be given a randomized choice of two Reality Augments to customize your play. The longer you remain in the match, the more Reality Augments you’ll collect. Reality Augments last until the match’s end. Examples of Reality Augments include:
- Light Fingers: Makes your weapons using Light Ammo reload faster.
- Aerialist: Grants you Glider redeploy for the rest of the match.
Not only that, but if you unlock an All New Battle Pass: With this Season’s Battle Pass purchase, you’ll immediately unlock the celestial-connected Selene. Progress through the Battle Pass to unlock Doom Slayer, The Ageless, and more. Later on in the Season, you’ll be able to unlock monster hunter for hire, Geralt of Rivia.
Players will get to experience next gen Fortnite with Unreal Engine 5.1: Fortnite Battle Royale since it now makes use of Unreal Engine 5’s newest features—such as Nanite, Lumen, Virtual Shadow Maps, and Temporal Super Resolution—via Unreal Engine 5.1.
The fourth Chapter of Fortnite’s Battle Royale enables you to go forth into a new realm and get around in new ways — ride a dirt bike, roll in a snowball, launch yourself with the Shockwave Hammer, and hurdle over obstacles. Power yourself up with Reality Augments and claim territory for your squad, leaving behind Banners to declare what’s yours. And of course, venture with newly-forged weapons.
After the events of Chapter 3’s finale, a new Island has formed. Here are just some of the sights you’ll encounter in this realm:
THE CITADEL: This point of interest is the castle ruled by “The Ageless.”
ANVIL SQUARE: Anvil Square is a peaceful-looking town in the heart of a forest. Emphasis on peaceful-LOOKING.
BRUTAL BASTION: This headquarters of the Reality Warriors is located among the snowy mountains. Speaking of snow, hit snow with your Pickaxe to create a snowball, jump inside the snowball, then get rolling. You can attack enemies this way too…
Considering this farm is abandoned, what makes it frenetic are the battles that happen here.
SEIZE A NEW SLATE OF WEAPONS
Venture with a fresh set of weapons on the Island. You’ll see returning ones too, but here’s a rundown of what’s new:
EX-CALIBER RIFLE: This powerful, semi-automatic rifle fires a ballistic blade at your enemies… that detonates mere moments later.
THUNDER SHOTGUN: A pump-action shotgun that deals high damage and shoots two rounds at a time. Just as thunder tears through the sky, this shotgun tears through skirmishes and shotgun shells.
MAVEN AUTO SHOTGUN: An automatic, fast-firing shotgun with moderate damage and range. A true maven, however, will know how to make the most of it.
RED-EYE ASSAULT RIFLE: An automatic assault rifle with a custom red dot sight for improved accuracy. Made for a focused wielder, this assault rifle has a controlled fire rate.
TWIN MAG SMG: Two are better than one: this automatic, fast-firing SMG has a double-sided magazine for an extra fast reload.
TACTICAL PISTOL: Don’t count this one out. This automatic, powerful sidearm can lay down serious firepower from its small frame.
Needless to say, this is a packed update! Fortnite is currently available for the PC. So get them gaming PCs ready for action!
