10 May Fortnite’s meteor mystery
After teasing an estimated 45-million strong fanbase with weeks of build-up, Season 4 of Epic Games’ blockbuster Fortnite went live earlier this week, with updates to their wildly popular Battle Royale making waves online. As many anticipated, the update comes following the aftermath of an enormous comet crash, which landed in the middle of the game’s map destroying Dusty Depot, the games’ military facility. Having destroyed the area, all that remains of Dusty Depot is a large crater – the location now renamed Dusty Divot. The comet has devastated the map and as a result gameplay is a different animal to season 3. Newly formed crater sites offer glowing rocks that can reduce player’s gravity which could be both highly effective or a handicap depending on the situation.
Epic announced the iOS release of Fortnite on its Twitter feed earlier last month, meaning it is also available to anyone with an iPhone SE, 6S, 7, 8 and X, and with the iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017 and Pro models. An Android version is currently in development. It was released in September 2017 on Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. via The Verge
