Fortnite is back with Chapter 2, which launched yesterday. After a massive world-ending black hole explosion, Fortnite has finally returned after being offline for almost 40 hours. The internet went into a frenzy this past Sunday. Players were complaining about their cosmetic items, which are not free, as well as the status of their in-game money.
Epic Games pulled off this great marketing stunt by going into a full-blown blackout taking everything offline. From the game’s servers, to the company’s social media accounts, everything disappeared. Many players around the world were speculating on whether their favorite game would ever return or not.
Fortunately, Fortnite is back, and it’s better than ever. The new season comes with a plethora of content updates, including a new vast map. There are new mechanics like swimming, speedboats, and fishing. But what’s best is Epic Games simplified the game considerably, removing much of the clutter like the confusing loot pool.
Fortnite is definitely back, even though it never really went anywhere, to begin with.
