Fortnite retains his throne as one of the most popular games in the world. And it’s not hard to see why. The community can become equal emotes in huge salary. And the game keeps getting tons of new content. Today, Fortnite Season 4 just went live.
And the new season brings a lot of changes, just like its predecessors. We finally meet Brie Larson directly. Fans have long speculated that she would be in the game. Today those theories are becoming true.
That’s not all, of course. With a new season we get a new battle pass, weapon changes, new mechanics, and more.
The new season, called Paradise, is all about the new fabric: Chrome. It will take place during Halloween. Chrome is an all-consuming substance that brightens things up regarding how you play.
Brie Larson’s character finally exposed
With the new season we get a new movie trailer. In it, we finally see Brie Larson’s character unmasked. As many fans would expect, she will be a key figure in this story.
In reality, Larson has been in the game for a few months now. She is the voice of one of the Heroic Seven, Paradigm. Her debut came in the second season of Chapter 3, during the live event. She commanded players while piloting the bear mech.
Since then she has pooped several times. We’ve heard her in audio logs and chatter during the weekly missions. Season 4, however, is the first time we officially see her with her helmet off.
Epic Games had been quiet about Larson’s involvement. It soon led fans to speculate about her role in the story.
Of course, fans soon found out that she was the voice behind the character. As many know, Larson is actually a big fan of Fortnite. Now players get confirmation that they were right all along.
What’s New in Fortnite Season 4?
Well, the most intriguing addition is Chrome. It is a mysterious metallic liquid that devours the map. As you might expect, it will play a big part this season. And it’s not just because of its significance in the story.
Chrome will have strong effects on gameplay. You can convert structures and yourself in Chrome. Doing this will allow you to walk through walls. So you can open new passages in enemy structures.
If you use Chrome, you are also immune to drop and fire damage. You can also use an air blast to phase through walls. That even applies to “non-chrome” walls.
In addition to chrome, two new themed weapons are coming into play. They are the EvoChrome shotgun and burst rifle. Most weapons also return. The exceptions are the pump and automatic shotgun, revolver and heavy sniper rifle.
We also have good news for long-distance enthusiasts. Sniper Rifles are getting polished this season. For the available sniper rifles, both damage and headshot multiplier were increased.
The Condo Canyon became the Cloudy Condos. You can now launch yourself onto the floating platforms. The map has now turned autumnal. In addition, players have four biomes to play in.
Other additions include the Chrome splash and vaults. The former change walls and players in Chrome. The safes can be unlocked with special keys on the card.
New goodies in the battle pass of the season
Epic Games also unveiled the new battle pass in the trailer above. The Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass contains over 100 rewards. That includes eight new characters with alternative styles. Other rewards include loading screens, pickaxes, emotes, and more.
In addition, players can get six new skins, plus a secret one.
Of course, the scalp is Brie Larson’s Paradigm without her helmet on. Hollow is next, a goth dude with Chrome mining hands. Twyn is a 2-in-1 package with a male and female variant.
However, those are the more “normal” skins. The Battle Pass also brings new experimental skins to players.
First up, we have The Herald, the Chrome-controlling villain for the season. Grizz is a little bear inside a bigger one. He controls it with a video game controller. Meow Skulls is the emo version of Meowscles. And Lenno Rose is an anime style skin with alternate colors.
Finally there is Spider-Gwen. It is the recommended crossover skin for the battle pass. However, it will be a difficult unlock.
