Fortnite returns with Chapter 2 after dramatic black hole drama

Fortnite season 10 ended with a bang!

An explosion in the game ended the season that caused the destruction of the entire game leaving only a black hole. It was a big surprise for players because the game is no longer playable after the explosion.

Since the end of the game, developing company Epic deleted more than 12,000 tweets on the Fortnite Twitter account leaving only a live video of the black hole.

Epic gave no sign as to when the game might return.

But on Tuesday, Epic rebooted Fortnite with an all-new Chapter 2, which introduces a brand-new location to explore.The new island looks wilder and more untamed than its predecessor, with plenty of forests, mountains, and lakes to explore, but much fewer city or urban locales.

However, this is expected to evolve through updates and new seasons. But the iconic flying battle bus that carries you into battle field remains the same.

Chapter 2 notably introduces new gameplay features, including fishing, swimming, and new vehicles to utilize like boats. There are also new multiplayer emotes that let you co-ordinate dances with friends. New weapons include a common variant of the rocket launcher, and a brand-new semi-automatic pistol, and you’re also able to better hide now, ducking in haystacks or dumpsters.

Users, who were following Fortnite saw Twitch suddenly go down for maintenance. The game’s official Twitter account returned to normal and a large update was available for the game, but it wasn’t immediately playable. Players who tried to log in were greeted with a “servers not responding” warning. The new chapter finally went live close to two hours later.
