There are a lot of people who still play Fortnite religiously. In fact, the game is still outcompeting its competition in player base and sales despite seeing Fortnite profits drop steeply. Just last week, I was talking about something big needing to be done for the game to feel fresh again. Then, as if written in the stars, the entire map disappeared, and players had to face a world without Fortnite for a whole 48 hours. A black hole appeared, sucking up the game as we know it. Fans were all over social media complaining about the Fortnite season 11 darkness that kept them from playing. Nevertheless, if the job was to get people talking, mission accomplished. Then, Epic Games released an incredible trailer showing off a lot of new stuff.
A New Map in Fortnite Chapter 2
The biggest change to the game’s new additions has to be the map. Gamers have been “dropping” into the same world for over a year now, and it’s finally time for a change. In the trailer, we see a lot of new areas. A few favorites I spotted right away include a fun little beachfront area, as well as a nuclear power plant. Before even seeing the map, another interesting feature is shown. Characters on a dock are fishing for guns and gear, which would be a fun way to find rare items. If it’s been awhile since you last played Fortnite, now might be a fun time to get back into the game. It’s still early since the changes launched, but everyone seems to think that the new map and update is just what the game needed.
How Long Can Fortnite Keep Up This Run?

A big question for awhile now has been whether or not Fortnite stays on top of the multiplayer world. Gamers don’t seem sick of it, and while the overall profits might be down, it’s still thriving. Players love the rinse and repeat battle royale style gameplay. Not to mention, it’s easy to find a match thanks to the millions of people playing. All in all, multiplayer moments in gaming like this don’t happen often. Some might want to complain about Fortnite, but it’s really in bad taste. If it’s not for you, it’s not for you. There’s no denying, however, that Fortnite is going to be one of those games that evolves rapidly, always in the interest of players. It’s no surprise the first challenges for chapter 2 are all about discovering new locations, so get out there!
