Tech, Fortnite Chapter Two is a phrase you’ll be hearing a lot this week – here’s why.
What a time to be a Fortnite player. The immensely popular battle royale game has made quite the storm this week, after plunging the Fortnite island on all of its servers into a massive black hole and leaving players without warning, assurance, or confirmation of what’s to come next. Apparently, it was the end.
It wasn’t the end, of course – Fortnite is a huge money spinner for Epic, and what enabled the developer to build its Epic Games Store. We expected a new Season at some point after the events of the current Season 10, after all – but Fortnite Chapter Two is a lot bigger than the usual update, with a visual overhaul and even a brand new map to explore.
Here’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter Two – pieced together from 48 hours of leaks, speculation, staring into the abyss, and our first time playing the updated game.
UPDATE: Fortnite Chapter Two is now live and available to play!
For guardian news theys say Fortnite has reached The End – changing video game storytelling for good
On Sunday evening, more than 6 million people gathered online via streaming services such as Twitch and YouTube to watch the end of the world. Not our world, thankfully, but the world of Fortnite, which was sucked into a black hole, taking the whole game and all player characters with it. If you try to load Fortnite today, you’ll be presented with a blank screen. When developer Epic Games called the finale of Fortnite Season 10 “The End”, it wasn’t kidding.
OK, before confused parents start celebrating, let’s be clear: Fortnite will be back, it’s just that Epic has closed out the first chapter of the game, which has amassed 250 million players since the launch of its Battle Royale mode in September 2017.
And amid all the hype, hysteria and controversy that has surrounded the gigantically successful title over the past two years, one aspect has been overlooked outside its fanbase: this has been one of the most innovative story experiments of the decade. From gurdian
