Chapter 3 Is Ready For You

Fornite Battle Royale Mobile - Chapter 3 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 3 is an all-new adventure featuring a 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. 

Completely flipped

Here in Chapter 3, the world has now literally been flipped on its back—allowing you to explore a brand-new map filled with three biomes. These feature the various theme-specific special landmarks that have something to do with the new Battle Pass skins, and you can expect various hidden goodies scattered throughout them. These biomes are the snowfield, the tropics, and the canyons. Some of the locations you can find here include the Daily Bugle and the Sanctuary—home to the mysterious The Seven faction in Fortnite lore.

To help you traverse these places, there are also new mechanics to your character’s movement. You can now slide to go faster downhill while still building and returning fire, swing between buildings using Spider-Man’s iconic web-shooters, and crawl faster and be able to pick up stuff after being knocked out. If you and your squad need a tactical retreat, there’s now an option to set up camp with a Tent—allowing you to heal up and even stash items there. There are even new weapons you can own to help in surviving.

The stakes are higher

For the update of Chapter 3 Season 1, you also get other methods to obtaining XP. Not only can you now earn Battle Pass XP through the Accolades from Creative Mode, but you can also net bonus XP by defending your Victory Crown in matches. This item can be obtained by having a high enough rank in Battle Royale. Then, on your next match, you automatically wear it and become much more visible to other players who can steal it. If you win the match wearing it, you can get an exclusive emote.

These are pretty helpful in gaining more XP, as the Battle Pass boasts numerous new skins and playable characters you can unlock and even buy off the item shop. First and foremost is Spider-Man, who not only brings in the web-shooter gadget but also the various iconic outfits he has. Another popular addition to the roster is the intimidating The Foundation, who happens to be the leader of The Seven.

Fortunately, playing the game on mobile can be much easier with the help of NVIDIA GeForce NOW. This allows you to load up the game through the cloud, bypassing any storage space entirely. It even has a touch-control version of Fortnite ready, so there’s no need for a gamepad or keyboard. You just need a free NVIDIA account in order to be able to use GeForce NOW.

Time to Play Again

All in all, Fortnite Chapter 3 is a promising update 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.
