The fourth season of Fortnite is here, and there is a lot of new content for the game.
According to official patch notes:
“Shards of a massive comet have crashed into the map altering the landscape. Discover gravity-defying Hop Rocks and find new ways to play. Jump in and witness the aftermath of the impact while you level up your Battle Pass and earn all new loot.”
The season 4 battle pass includes 100 tiers of new rewards, such as cosmetic items, sprays, and emotes.
The new Save the World questline is called Blockbuster! Part one begins with five quests and one Landmark Mission:
“Ray has gone missing and no one knows where she is. With the help of Spitfire and Lok, investigate the comet and gear up to recruit a team of superheroes. Find Ray and bring her back home!”
There are also a lot of bug fixes and tweaks to game balance in the update. You can destroy structures on the island you start on while you wait for matches to start. There’s no longer a six-item limit for sprays and emotes either.
For the full list of changes, check the official site.
