After weeks of a gigantic comet teasing an impending doom, Fortnite has launched Season 4. In true Fortnite fashion, the season kicked off with a new trailer and a wide-array of fantastic new game-mechanics for players to discover and enjoy in both PvE and PvP. The new season is available right now, so update your game and start streaming.
Now that the comet has hit the Fortnite world, shards of the heavenly destroyer are scattered across the map, altering the very landscape that players have memorized over the last few months. The devs teased the new season adding, “Players can jump in and witness the aftermath of the impact right now, discover gravity-defying Hop Rocks, and find new ways to play.” The comet also ushered in the start of the Season 4 Battle Pass, sporting 100 tiers of new rewards, including new cosmetic items, emotes and for the first time, Sprays. There’s a lot to discover in the new season, so clear your schedule this weekend and set some time aside to explore all things Fortnite.
One of the big additions are Hop Rocks, which allow you to defy the basic laws of gravity when consumed. If you prefer the “Save the World” PvE mode, you will join Spitfire and Lok as they investigate the comet. You will also get new gear, and recruit a team of superheroes to help you on your quest to save the remaining population from the onslaught of storm freaks.
Fans of the game can watch the Season 4 trailer below, thanks to an early morning upload from the devs.
