Another epic battle royale game

The immensely popular battle royale game is back with fresh skin, a new map, and a whole lot of epic battles. Fortnite Battle Royale – Chapter 3 is the new offering of the globally acclaimed survival game. This action-packed game boasts updates a lot bigger than usual, with a visual overhaul to make your gaming experience all the more exciting. 

A reboot of sorts

Fortnite Battle Royale – Chapter 3 resets the board game, bringing a ton of new skins and a welcome makeover for the game mechanics. To be clear, this game is still very much a Fortnite game. Your goal of eliminating or avoiding the other 99 players who have parachuted into a vibrant remote island is still the core of the game. However, with this new title, the task will become more challenging. Aside from the new map and new ways to win rewards, the game also boasts better graphics. Sure, it still carries the Dreamwork-like vibe that completely belies the tactical depth of the game, but the new island feels a lot more vibrant. The game looks cleaner and more vivid, making it genuinely look like a brand-new game.

Even the game’s layout was updated for easier gaming. The small health and shield bars are shifted to the side and made bigger instead of their typical location at the bottom of the screen. Moreover, the countdown is displayed prominently in the middle of the screen with you consume a shield potion or apply a Med Kit.

New world, new ways to play

Perhaps the biggest change showcased in Fortnite Battle Royale – Chapter 3 is its new game map, which features a brand-new island. The previous island from Chapter 2 has been flipped and Perhaps the biggest change showcased in Fortnite Battle Royale – Chapter 3 is its new game map, which features a brand-new island. The previous island from Chapter 2 has been flipped and offers three new biomes: the snowfield, the tropics, and the canyons. 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.

There are also various new weapons to choose from, such as the Range Assault Rifle, MK-Seven Assault Rifle, and Striker Pump Shotgun. Aside from these, there are new gameplay mechanics, too. You can now slide to go faster downhill while still building and returning fire, swing between buildings using Spider-Man’s wearable 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. 

The first season is the benchmark

In Chapter 3 Season 1, there are various new skins you can unlock and purchase. As mentioned, Spider-Man is making a big entrance with both his iconic web-slingers and various outfits. There’s also the cool-looking The Foundation—the leader of The Seven, which is a mysterious faction in Fortnite lore—now available as a playable character of sorts. New characters such as Harlowe, Shanta, Ronin, Haven, Lt. John Llama, and Gumbo also join the fray.

Lastly, there are additional incentives to the gameplay. You can now earn Battle Pass XP through Accolades in Creative Mode. You can also earn a Victory Crown if you have a high enough rank in Battle Royale—and this offers another layer of difficulty to your matches. You’ll start off your next match wearing it and it will make you noticeable on the map for other players. Hold onto it for as long as possible for bonus XP and if you win with it, you can get an exclusive emote.

Fresh start

With the core gameplay fans have come to love, combined with the new skin and game updates, Fortnite Battle Royale – Chapter 3 brings the series a fresh start again. The tasks are more challenging, and the new mechanics make the game feel new even for a seasoned player. While these upgrades will require hundreds of hours to get fully used to, the time you spent will be totally worth it.
