Share

Towards the end of season 3, users saw a slew of meteorites crashing through the world's atmosphere, ending with a huge comet that crash lands at the center of the game's map. Many locations have been transformed due to the impact, giving players new points of interest to discover and see how their favorite location has changed.

Epic Games has announced Season 4 of Fortnite has officially kicked off with hundreds of new rewards for players to unlock via the Season 4 Battle Pass, and more.

The release of the new season also solved one of Fortnite's burning mysteries: A comet had recently appeared in the sky, causing anxiety and debate among players about its meaning.

The comet has left a scar on the island. While the loot is all cosmetic, they definitely reward paying players with more items and things to do in the game. Downtime in advance of season 4 commencing started a few hours back at 4am EST. Now, in both acknowledgment and celebration of the new changes, we're breaking down some of the latest additions players will spot within the Fortnite Season 4 map.

Like previous seasons, Season 4 comes with its own Battle Pass.

Moreover, the site of the meteor crashes has a new item scattered about that when consumed enables players to bounce around in low gravity.

Epic Games have been smart with a slow implementation of clues that all pointed toward a major disaster on the map. The game's "Blockbuster Event", dubbed "Origin Story", has you investigating the comet with the help of the characters Spitfire and Lok, and when you kill enemies in the mode, they'll have a chance to drop loot as well as crafting resources and ammunition. Visit the crater and you'll find glowing rocks all around.

These emotes are available when you purchase the Season 4 Battle Pass for Fortnite. There's also a Wonder Woman-inspired superhero skin called Valor (tier 71), another commando-type skin named Squad Leader (tier 87), and, finally, a very cool exosuit called Omega (tier 100).

This is the main change in a sea of updates made to the map; from the appearance of Risky Reels in the North East corner to a new, unnamed mansion on the Eastern shore outside Lonely Lodge.

Elsewhere, the patch notes explain headshots in Battle Royale are now prioritised, which means players can no longer block headshots with idle body parts.
