Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 3 launches with a splash
Following ‘The Device’ in-game event which briefly turned the Storm into a circular tsunami, Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 3 launched on 17 June. Players quickly noticed a water-logged map, with some of their favourite locations now submerged in water, or held up on floating supports.
Since Season 3 launched, players have been diving in and exploring new features, including:
- Taking on attacking bands of A.I. Marauders who crash down onto the island and challenge players’ survival.
- Swimming with loot sharks: they steal items and are a dangerous threat, but also make for fun transportation if you manage to hook onto one with a Fishing Rod to ride, steer and jump across the waters.
- Build-a-Brella, which allows players to create their very own custom Umbrella! Available through the Battle Pass and by completing the challenges to level up.
- As the water recedes, new locations are being revealed, allowing players to discover new ways to get around.
Battle Pass owners were also greeted to a special surprise as a popular ocean-based hero joins the fray.
Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 3 runs until 27 August. Read more about the new season here.
