Fortnite Chapter 2 Is Live, Brings A New Island And More

And like that, Fortnite Chapter 2 is live. After almost two days of a blackhole livestream, as well as thousands of children throwing fits for not being able to play Fortnite, the next chapter is out.

At 4 AM EST, Fortnite slowly came back to life, leading to a maintenance screen before going live at roughly 6 AM EST. Called Chapter 2, there are several new features including boats, swimming, fishing, as well as hiding spots. Also, a new battle pass is available which utilizes a new experience system which makes levelling up less-grindy. Also, there’s the map.

What do you think, was the wait worth all the new features and map? We’ll be diving in and seeing what other changes are hiding.
