The Fortnite Comet Finally Hit

Fortnite Battle Royale

There's also the Superhero-themed Season 4 Battle Pass which starts at 950 V-Bucks, Epic's in-game currency (equivalent to roughly $10).

Epic Games took to Twitter to announce the server downtime, and the launch of Season 4. Shards of a massive comet have crashed into the map altering the landscape.

The area is called Hop Rocks, and - fittingly enough - if you go there you'll find some glowing rocks that you can eat up and gain the ability to fly. There's also a new game mode coming off the tails of the comet known as "Impact." You'll also find smaller craters across the map, including at Tilted Towerrs.

Consume them and lift off with low gravity! If you want every unlock for Fortnite Battle Royale Season 4 Battle Pass without having to earn it, you'll be paying nearly $150 (almost Rs. 9,720). Whether your game is Save the World or Battle Royale, both game modes got some much-needed updates. Those that purchased the Season 3 Battle Pass will begin the new season with 5 free tiers following the purchase of Season 4's Battle Pass.

"It's something everybody has in common, everybody and their parents are playing Fortnite right now", said Riverhead High School student Ryan Keane.

The battle royale mode itself is actually a spin-off from the original Fortnite game - which launched previous year and revolved around a single or multiplayer survival mode involving fighting off zombies - but has now become the star gaming attraction.

The fourth season of Fortnite is upon us, and it's bringing some pretty big changes with it.

The game is split into seasons, with each lasting several weeks and all introducing new features and items. Every single game in Fortnite provides a new sequence of events to traverse to try and win the game, which makes you as the player feel like you have options such as what to carry in your inventory or what path to take to the circle.

The full list of changes for Fortnite 4.0 can be found here. New skins and other cosmetics are released with the introduction of the new Battle Pass.

Although there are seven challenges each week, you can only complete four out of the seven Weekly Challenges to unlock your rewards, so choose the challenges that best fit your style and those offering the most Battle Stars.
