Fortnite: season IV begins with a bang - and new locations

Fortnite: season IV begins with a bang - and new locations

There's also the Superhero-themed Season 4 Battle Pass which starts at 950 V-Bucks, Epic's in-game currency (equivalent to roughly $10).

Fortnite has just received a big update from developer Epic Games, which brings the game up to version 4.0. The new area is called Dusty Divot, and beyond being a new spot to land in when you jump off the Battle Bus, there are also Hop Rocks (shards of the comet) scattered all around the area which you can consumer to jump around in low gravity. There, but also in other parts of the map, players can stumble upon craters that have glowing rocks lying around. These purple crystals enable players to float in zero gravity for a limited time, opening up a whole host of gameplay options. It looks to be an incredibly fun addition to the largely underrated co-op mode that should help some of the game's battle royale fans find an excuse to give it a shot.

Some players have already discovered that there is a Omega pickaxe that can be unlocked by completing special Omega challenges.

In Fortnite season 3 it was the John Wick style Reaper skin which proved to be a sign of a seriously skilled and experienced player.

It turns out, the rumors were real, but we won't see any of that in the Battle Royale Mode.

Would You Travel The World For Money?
WOW Air wants to pay YOU, and a friend, partner, anyone you consider half of your "dynamic duo" to move to Iceland this summer. Travel and living expenses would also be covered by the airline while the winning pair would be visiting other destinations.

Elsewhere on the map, the new Risky Reels area (a drive-in theater) seen in the Season 4 trailer has been added.

Sensor Tower, a mobile stats website recently predicted that the game could make a huge amount that is $500 million in a year if the game gets released by this summer. The meteor is located over the new Tilted Towers location and some players believe that the meteor is going to destroy it. Sure, it's been a good place to seek out wood, but the massive swamp was a chore to navigate, offering too few rewards for its otherwise barren environment. Expect skins similar to classic heroes in the Battle Pass, like Wonder Woman, the Flash and Superman.

Headshots are now prioritized when other body parts are in the way.

You can't rest when you're at the top, though.

The new free skins that come with the first level of the Battle Pass.
