A new season of fortnite is upon us, and this one is a little…strange. Developer Epic Games is rolling out Chapter 3: Season 2 of the long-running battle royale, and it’s called Resistance; a trailer (embedded above) showcases a number of opposing forces clashing on the fortnite the island, alongside a certain wizard from the Marvel Universe.
Ahead of the official season announcement, Epic said it would be donating two weeks of its fortnite produced to support humanitarian efforts related to Ukraine. This will last from March 20 to April 3.
The season brings some big changes to the game. The most extreme is that, at least for now, building has been “wiped out”, removing one of the most distinct aspects of fortnite player. To balance this, players now have an additional shield – called an “overshield” – for defense. Other changes include a combination of faster sprints and climbs that allow for parkour-like movement, the addition of airships to explore and tanks to drive, and a handful of new guns. And if players donate enough gold during the season, they’ll unlock a drivable version of the iconic battle bus, which now looks like something out of the ordinary. madmax.
Along with changes to the game and the island, the new season’s battle pass also adds a handful of unlockable characters for those who purchase it. Most notable is Doctor Strange – which will return to theaters in May – and it’s joined by new faces with names like The Imagined and The Origin. For those who follow fortnitethis season seems to be full of important details.
Season 2 follows a rocky start to the game’s final chapter, which debuted last December. The previous season introduced destructive weather, faster movement, and giant monsters, as well as collaborations with everyone from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak to Naomi Osaka. There was even a virtual art gallery for players to explore.
