Fortnite Season 4 skins

Other than the patches and bug fixes, the developer has introduced new hero types, special rocks giving anti-gravity power and so on with the Fortnite Season 4 update. Exploring the map to see what's different should be an exciting endeavor for Fortnite veterans, and these new areas that have been added with the comet's landing are definitely worth exploring. The new update to Epic Games' insanely popular Battle Royale multiplayer shooter (and less popular co-op tower defense) includes updates to both modes along with 100 tiers worth of items and rewards.

It's finally here: The meteors have crashed down in "Fortnite", launching the fourth season of the game and fundamentally re-shaping the geography of the game's main island.

Get hyped folks, season 4 of Fortnite is here. It appears that it has struck in Dusty Depot, leaving a vast impact crater. Effectively changing the gameplay as well, especially with the low gravity introduction via hop rocks. If you don't want to invest 75 hours into Fortnite Battle Royale to unlock all of these levels you can buy your way to the top. While many players are incredibly excited about the new Battle Pass, there are many more changes the latest patch brought to the game. Keep reading and check out the gallery (below) to discover how to complete this new weekly challenge with minimal fuss. Check out the northeast of the map, and you'll also find a new area called Risky Reels.

But they need wonder no longer, as Fortnite Season 4 is now live!

Myanmar has said its operations in Rakhine were a legitimate response to attacks on security forces by Rohingya insurgents. Rohingya are denied citizenship in overwhelmingly Buddhist Myanmar, where they've faced persecution for decades.

Save the World, the original co-op survival mode, also saw some huge changes brought into play including loot drops from fallen enemies. Headshots are now prioritized when other body parts are in the way, a change that affects all weapons save for the Rocket Launcher and Grenade Launcher, and the size of the hitbox for player hands has been slightly reduced.

It could be argued that just about any location within Fortnite could serve players looking for a dance battle, but with Season 4 arrived, there's now one specific location suited for just such occasions.

There have also been a number of changes to the user interface, created to make the player experience more seamless.
