Fortnite players have a whole lot of goodness to explore thanks to the launch of Chapter 3 that brings some big, big changes to the game. Season 1 of Chapter 3 is already live. Epic developers have named it “Flipped” and it offers players an entirely new island to explore that brings dynamic weather conditions along with it. Players will be able to find and explore Sanctuary and the Daily Bugle which, as the name implies, also brings along some Spidey goodness (sooner or later, that is).
Along with the launch of Chapter 3: Season 1, players will have the opportunity to purchase the Battle Pass that awards an opportunity to unlock Spider-Man and The Foundation that is voiced by none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Here’s the word from the official site:
Breaking the Ice – Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is a new beginning — a perfect starting point for new players and a perfect returning point for those who haven’t played in a while. Witness the wintry new Island thaw, discover new locations plus a few surprises, seize Victory Crowns, and complete new Quests.
Slide, Swing, and Retreat – Running downhill? Try sliding to get around quickly and evade enemy fire — while still being able to shoot and build. Wanna swing on the Daily Bugle and other buildings? Starting December 11, you’ll be able to put on Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters. Did an enemy knock you out? You’re now able to crawl faster to safely reach your squad. (You can now pick stuff up while knocked out too!)
XP Beyond Battle Royale – Battle Royale isn’t the only place to earn XP towards your Battle Pass. You can also earn XP from Accolades in Creative! Creators can incorporate Accolades in their maps, games, or experiences for players jumping in. Play your preferred way to unlock Spidey, The Foundation, and more!
Snow and Sea, Desert and Pasture – The new Island isn’t just a fresh battlefield. It’s also ripe for exploration. Roam the western snowfield and ascend to a “Seven Outpost.” Traverse the eastern tropics with a Motorboat. Get a taste of cozy living in Condo Canyon. And after most of the snow has thawed, cross the grasslands and discover a previously snowed-in secret.
Start a Camp with Your Squad – Found a pristine landscape you don’t want to leave behind? Need a home base while exploring the Island? Throwdown a Tent to heal up or stash items to collect in future matches. A teammate can use your Tent to assemble their own, meaning the whole squad can get in on the fun. If the Storm’s coming up on your camp, pack your Tents for a new campsite — or leave ‘em if there’s no time. You can still access your stashed items in new Tents!
Take the Crown, Defend the Crown – Place highly enough in Battle Royale and earn a Victory Crown. You’ll start your next match wearing a crown — but with bragging rights come high stakes. The crown will shine in all its glory, making you stand out to those seeking a Victory Crown of their own. Hold on to your crown for bonus XP during the match, and if you’re skilled enough to win while wearing the crown, you’ll get an exclusive Emote!
