Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6

Epic Games has announced that its massively-popular battle royale game, Fortnite, will no longer support Windows 7 and 8. The studio announced this over Twitter on the game’s support account, revealing that players will need to use Windows 10 or 11 to play Fortnite starting from Chapter 4 Season 2.

For players unable to upgrade their version of Windows, Epic Games has recommended that they play the game through streaming service GeForce Now. Players also have the option to play Fortnite through several other platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Android, and Nintendo Switch.

Fortnite Season 4 Episode 2 has just launched, and brings with it several new updates to the game, including a new cyberpunk-themed city dubbed Mega City, and the addition of Attack on Titan protagonist Eren Yeager as a skin for players to use.

The update also features new vehicles for players to use, like the Rogue Bike, and the Nitro Drifter car. Players can also now grind on rails to traverse Mega City through the new grinding mechanic.
