While we were expecting another Fortnite season to come to an end with the end of Season X, no other player thought that we would be entering a brand new storyline with updated visuals and new features such as swimming, carrying downed teammates, and a new XP system to progress faster in both account level and Battle Pass level.
This all added up to Season 1 of Chapter 2. Sure, it was nothing new that with the end of Season X, this chapter was going to end but honestly? Did anybody expect this at all!
New Fortnite Map
Now that the black hole completely destroyed the island we know of and most certainly the entire universe along with it, so it is normal for us to see an entirely new looking world.
At first glance, the map may remind you of the previous one but make no mistake, it literally has nothing to do with it.
There is now a large body of water in the center of the map and we can see falls, rivers, and lakes. These allow players to fish and travel in the map a lot faster if they can find a motorboat.
The entire map almost seems like it came out of summer thanks to bright colors but we think all of that will be changed soon since Season 2 of Chapter 2 is coming closer and we are likely to have a Winter/Christmas theme.
So could this be the return of ice in Fortnite island? It’s too early to say. However, we will certainly have some snowy theme and get a few of the Outfits from Season 7 back in the Item Shop.
Chapter 2 Season 2 is expected to be launched between December 15th – December 25th, the weekend before Christmas.
