'Fortnite' Chapter 2 is here: New map, boats and 'less grind'


Just when people had started believing that the game has ended, Epic Games has dropped a new trailer titled "Fortnite: Chapter 2". This new Fortnite patch is rolling out across PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iPhone, and Android devices. There are 13 new locations for players to visit, but the map is grayed out until a player actually travels to that area. Millions more logged in to Fortniteservers to watch the event unfold themselves from within the game. Some past favorites, like Risky Reels, are also back. There are also new hideouts (like haystacks and Dumpsters) and the ability to blow up gas tanks and explosive barrels. The Season 1 Battle Pass has also been introduced, and the lasts until December 12.

If that wasn't enough, players can heal their squad with the new bandage bazooka, carry their downed teammates to safety and even upgrade weapons at the new "upgrade bench" using their materials.

The facility station appears to be leaking one thing into the water, which ties in with the commonly water-based theme of the brand new season, which permits for swimming, boats, and fishing for the primary time. In short, this is Fortnite like we've never seen it before, and that's a very exciting prospect despite the game's unparalleled success in its first iteration.

Fortnite is known for revamping with a new theme every few months, so what happened this week is no shock (though this is by far the most drastic stunt pulled by Fortnite).

International Monetary Fund cuts 2019 global growth estimate to 3%
It said: "A credible fiscal consolidation path is needed to bring down India's elevated public debt over the medium term". It called for a strengthening of governance of public sector banks and greater efficiency of their credit allocation.

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins had a simple tweet about Chapter 2. Now that Save the World is no longer on sale, is the PvE mode going free soon too?

However, it looks a strong possibility that these are the new Fortnite map POIs. All the default skins now sport a new look with a green jacket.

The way in which the game's makers have managed to build the hype around the update has been a masterclass in modern marketing - now they wait and see if the product they've made will live up to it.
