After being down for more than a day, Fortnite finally came back to life. As expected, Fortnite returned with Chapter 2 and a brand new map.
As quoted from Polygon, Wednesday (10/16/2019), the brief disappearance of Fortnite turned out to be a part of the final event of Season 10. This event culminated in a rocket ship that launched into the sky, creating a black hole that sucked the old map of Fortnite.
After that, players are treated to a black screen with a circle in the middle. In all social media, Fortnite does not tell anything, so the players have no way to know whether the game will return or not.
Fortnite is Back Online, but What’s New?
Without any announcement, Fortnite is back online since 04:00 ET, which is a fairly regular time for the Fortnite patch. Fortnite returns with Chapter 2 and the new map inside it.
Based on the trailer that was leaked on Monday morning, the new map will cover swimming, fishing, and new boats. In addition, it seems that there will also be new weapons around the map.
Although there are obviously many gameplay changes as part of this new season, users don’t know exactly what has changed. Unlike previous seasons, Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, did not release patch notes for updates, so users had to find the surprise themselves.
