Chapter 2 Is Ready For You

Fornite Battle Royale Mobile - Chapter 2 is a free-to-play action-adventure online game developed and published by Epic Games. Fortnite: Battle Royale is a companion game to Fortnite: Save the World, which had combined the co-op apocalyptic survival genre with a construction game mechanic. This time, Fortnite Chapter 2 is the next adventure to the previous ten seasons of the first version and features a wild all-new map and several new cool stuff to welcome you into this next story.

99 versus 1

In both Fortnite games, the sudden appearance of a worldwide storm causes 98% of the world's population to disappear and zombie-like creatures rise to attack the remainder. In Battle Royale, however, you instead have to compete against 99 other players on a large island and be the last man standing as the playable map continually shrinks over time.

Fortnite: Battle Royale has stayed true to this for the past two years of its heightened popularity. To keep things fresh and fun for the few game modes it offers, tons of seasons were continuously held, bringing in both permanent upgrades to different features—like weapons and map landmarks—and limited-time events that include the season finales with epic battles. 

The reset

Here in Chapter 2, it’s still the same-old mission, but now so many new upgrades and additions were introduced in order to attract both new and old players to play. When Season X had ended, the game map was engulfed by a black hole and you couldn’t play the game for over two days as the screen only showed the black hole.

Once Chapter 2’s Season 1 had finally launched, the very first massive change was evident as you entered the game: the map was an all-new world—a fresh start to the season and loose narrative of Fortnite: Battle Royale. The new island you’ll be battling on looks wilder and more untamed than the first one, with more forests, mountains, and lakes surrounding you than manmade structures.

More fun

The new map isn’t just the only thing you get to enjoy in Chapter 2. There are new gameplay features, such as the ability to fish on the various bodies of water for items and actually swim in the fully accessible waters. You can even drive boats on the lakes. If you love playing multiplayer with friends, there are now new co-op emotes like high-fives and coordinated dances.

You can also carry your teammate to safety if they’re hurt and even hide in haystacks and dumpsters to ambush enemy players. You can use the Bandage Bazooka to heal friends and leveling up is much easier now with the various challenges that you can do to earn points for experience. There’s also a new skill-based matchmaking system so matches will feel more balanced.

Battle it all out

While the Chapter 2 seasons don’t really bring in a lot of major permanent updates compared to Chapter 1, they still refresh the hype for more competitive fun. In Season 7, the hinted alien theme in previous seasons gets even more in-depth and you can enjoy brand-new skins, weapons, and other items via the shop and the new Battle Pass. Additionally, there are new crossovers to enjoy—which are in line with this season’s theme.

Season 7’s most awaited update, however, is its competitive events. The FNCS All-Star Showdown’s format of Trios is retained for this season and it officially begins on June 23. There will be a two-week break from June 28 to July 11 on all official competitions and then finally, the FNCS Qualifier will start on July 29. For the weekly events, you can take a shot at the Cash Cups again. However, the Friday Nite Bragging Rights event has been replaced by other additional events since it’s been discontinued

Unfortunately, Fortnite isn’t available on all popular app stores but you can still get it on your mobile device through other means. For this method, you’ll be needing the help of NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Epic Games. First, you’ll need an NVIDIA account for GeForce NOW. After setting it up, add GeForce NOW to your Safari browser. Log into it after installation, then add Fortnite to your library of games. After that, it’s simply just a matter of logging into your Epic Games account and launching the game.

Time to Play Again

All in all, Fortnite Chapter 2 is a promising reset to the game and playing on mobile will no doubt still be as fun as playing on consoles. The premise stays the same so returning players won’t find the new landscape too hard to get used to, but at the same time, it feels like a brand-new game you’re going to try for the first time—with its upgraded graphics and gameplay mechanics setting the stage for this battle royale.
