Fortnite’s Season 10 went out with a bang… literally.

For those still on the island during its final death throes, meteors rained down upon the map, players were launched into the air, the entire island was sucked into a black hole, and for many long, nail-biting hours, that really appeared to be the end of Fortnite.

Fortnite’s Season 10 went out with a bang… literally.

For those still on the island during its final death throes, meteors rained down upon the map, players were launched into the air, the entire island was sucked into a black hole, and for many long, nail-biting hours, that really appeared to be the end of Fortnite.

But now the hit battle royale game is back with Chapter 2 Season 1, a shiny new map, a new Battle Pass, and plenty of new gameplay surprises to switch things up a bit. And to introduce you to Fortnite’s new look, there’s not just one new trailer, but two…

Fortnite has a new map


In the cinematic reveal trailer, the black hole collapses in on itself, and a knot of survivors from Fortnite’s former world find themselves on a brand new island. It’s nighttime when they arrive, but the sun soon rises to reveal a stunning new map, complete with glistening lakes, snow-capped mountain peaks, a power plant which is definitely contravening a few environmental laws, and a vast dam.

As they explore, the survivors are also shown fishing for weapons (and getting tin cans, but you can’t always be lucky), as well as drinking from the unhealthy-looking water at the base of the power plant, before the good old Battle Bus swoops in overhead.

There’s a Chapter 2 Season 1 Battle Pass

Next up is the Battle Pass trailer, which is chock-full of surprises too.

It seems that you can now traverse Fortnite’s waterways much more easily, either by diving in and swimming around or by hitching a ride on a boat (and yes, of course you can battle your enemies while tearing around on a speedboat).

We also saw another glimpse of the new fishing ability, a line of fabulous llama pogo sticks, and a dumpster in which one brave warrior hid before leaping out to attack a hapless passerby. Even more excitingly, you’ll also be able to pick up downed allies and carry them to safety to heal up.

There’ll be new ways to level up, too. The trailer shows characters levelling up medals: the Battle medal by achieving milestones in battle, the Scavenger medal by finding items in a treasure chest, and the Survivor medal by gathering materials for building.

The Chapter 2 Season 1 Battle Pass contains over 100 rewards to unlock, and you’ll be able to earn up to 1500 V-bucks too. It’s available now for 950 V-bucks, so head on over to GAME to top up your digital credit wallet now!
