Multiplayer battleground games have become quite a rage for about a year or so. Gaming companies have come up with new and awesome PvP Battle Royal games for all the platforms be it Android, PC, PS, or Xbox. Popular titles include probably the most popular PUBG, its rival Fortnite, FreeFire, and another game that joined the bandwagon of the PvP multiplayer battle game is the Call of Duty. But, if we have to name two games that really laid the base for this multiplayer battle royal games genre then, it has to be PUBG and Fortnite. Moreover, in a recent development, Epic Games which is the developer of Fortnite has made Chapter 2 live.
Chapter 2 is all about new characters, new maps and transition from cut-scene to the new chapter. You can check out the game trailer for the Fortnite Chapter 2 below:
Now talking about the latest Chapter 2, it is available for all the platforms i.e. PC, smartphones, and consoles. However, one thing to note is that the update is pretty hefty one as for the PS4 update file weighs just a little over 9GB. But for PC it weighs around 16GB. Let us talk about the changes that the new chapter brings in for Fortnite:
Getting new skins, characters, guns etc is a part and parcel of the updates for such battleground games. This is no different for the Fortnite Chapter 2 that went live recently. However, some of the users have reported that the new skins and guns slow down the game a bit. This is not yet confirmed whether the new cosmetics are the main culprit behind this. A probable workaround for this would be to change back to the default skin in order to avoid the slow game glitch in chapter 2.
Battle royal players play the respective games so much that after a certain amount of time, the in-game maps becomes repetitive and boring. That is the beauty of a new update as chapter 2 for Fortnite brings in new maps and locations where players can go head to head and enjoy the new arenas. There is a total of 13 new location in the latest chapter for Fortnite
The new map consists of greenery with trees and lots of water. But, what is more, interesting is that there is a lot of new locations within the map for you to explore in the latest chapter. Moreover, the new update also brings in basic water skills like swimming, fishing, and motorboating which were already present on PUBG and Call of Duty.
New Season Pass
With the Fortnite chapter 2 going live, the new season brings in a new battle pass for Season 1. You can gain medals by completing in-game tasks, gain skills or by surviving longer in the game. In the beginning, the season allows the players to build up by rake in points by playing the game and unlock top tiers for the Battle Pass.
New ways to level up
Game developers have promised new ways that will help the players to level up smoothly and in a faster way. Epic Games, which is the developer of Fortnite reveals that there are a new XP and medals system that you can earn by playing the matches.
One more interesting thing is that with the help of a new water skill i.e. fishing, you can get fish for eating and increase your health. However, there is a catch, while fishing, you not only will be able to catch the fish but there are chances that you can catch new weapons and guns from water. In chapter 2, players can also hide the objects and jump out to kill the opponents, or even blow up explosives for an attack. You can also heal your squad with the new bandage bazooka, carry your injured teammate to safety and celebrate with new group emotes like high five.
All these new changes bring in a lot of new stuff and make the game more interesting than before. Players and the gaming fraternity were also pretty excited regarding the launch of this new chapter. The marketing behind the launch of this chapter was also pretty “Epic” as for this new chapter, Fortnite announced an event called “The End”. Not only this, this event was teased by the game developers and also there was a mysterious timer within the game that started counting down, making every player excited.
What happened after is more interesting, as the whole map and players and even the whole world was struck by a huge asteroid. Everything was pulled in by a huge black hole. Servers went offline and after 2 hours or so, the servers went back online. There arrived chapter 2 features for Fortnite. Quite an interesting way of pushing a new chapter for a game.
