Season 9 is here!
As one might expect, Epic games had released a teaser for the upcoming season, Fortnite battle royale season 9 and has confirmed the new season to start on May 9th,2019, Thursday. Epic games tweeted the following “The future is unknown”, getting gamers hyped up for the new season. The tweet could suggest that the new season will have a futuristic theme, including futuristic skins, emotes, back bling and much more goodies for players to spend V bucks on.
Wrapping up Season 8
As the volcano event wrapped up just a few days before, the Fortnite map underwent a major change including the destruction of a popular landing spot, tilted towers. Now after the volcano has erupted and the sky filled with ash filled dark clouds, the destruction of many landing zones like tilted towers, retail rows, etc might leave some players sad and excited to see what will become of the map. There are still remnants of the volcano eruptions in the map, lava spread throughout the map and destruction all around the players.
Titled Towers..will be missed
The volcano event also included a worldwide player voting, where players voted on which previously vaulted weapon should be brought back to the game. This might have been one of the greatest highlights of the game as plenty of players voted on the “Drum gun” to be back to Fortnite. However, their choices did cost them two of the most popular landing sites on the game. Although the un-vaulting of the “Drum gun” was voted by the players themselves, plenty of streamers and YouTubers, have expressed their disapproval, quoting the gun as overpowered in some situation. Whether the drum gun is here to stay on Fortnite, we will just have to see as the new season rolls out.
