The Mandalorian and other inter-dimensional hunters join the fun.
The threat of Galactus is gone(for now) but Fortnite continues to roll on. Following maintenance, servers are back up and Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 is now live. The theme for this season is “Zero Point” and sees Agent Jones recruiting hunters from across all realities to ensure no one escapes the Loop. Check out the story trailer below.
Along with new locations including the Zero Point, an arena and a jungle, there’s a new bounty mechanic in play. Essentially, players can work with the various characters on the island to take on bounties, and fulfill requests. Said characters can be your allies or even challenged to a duel. You’ll need to spend Bars to hire them though and these can only be earned from completing quests, eliminating other players or finding stashes.
These Bars can also be spent on new weapons like the Night Hawk, the Amban Sniper Rifle and Dragon’s Breath Shotgun with more coming through the season. There’s also a new Battle Pass (which is part of the new Fortnite Crew service) to purchase with several new cosmetics to earn. Check out the trailer for that below.
