Developed by Epic Games, the online video game named ‘Fortnite’ was released in 2017. Ever since Fortnite was released, it has been held high in the gaming universe, with gamers in absolute love with it. It has won many awards for its amazing gameplay and theme. The game is set after a calamity where 98% of the world’s population has been wiped out, and the remaining survivors are attacked by zombies. The players have to protect themselves, engage in fights, provide equipment, and collect resources to save their base shelter. Fortnite comes with three gaming modes, all of which have proven to be a great success to Epic games.
The three gaming modes are
- Fortnite: Save the world; It involves up to four players coming together to complete a mission. Players have to go around to fulfill their objectives and getting rewards in return for completing the missions.
- Fortnite Battle Royale; It is a battle that can involve up to 100 players. The players can play solo or in a duo or even as a squad consisting of 3-4 members. The players have to scavenge for weapons, vehicles, etc. and save themselves from getting killed. They have to face off other players and try to survive until the end. The area of the map keeps on shrinking, making the encounters more intense and frequent. The last one to survive wins the battle.
- Fortnite Creative; It is the game mode that resembles the game Minecraft where players can spawn everything and create things of their own.
Even though all the game modes received a lot of appreciation from everyone but the second mode, Fortnite Battle Royale, was immensely liked by the players of the game. The Battle Royale and Creative game modes do not require the use of any currency, but the ‘Save the world’ mode is monetized. The game is monetized using V bucks, which act as in-game money. V bucks can be purchased through real money as well as be earned by completing challenges and quests.
Season 4 of Fortnite Chapter 2 began on 27 August 2020. Usually, the chapters last around 10 weeks, but this time, the chapter may hang around for 14 weeks. The battle pass for this season is supposed to run till 30th November. Since players are already some weeks into season 4, they can’t help but wonder what more is to come with season 5. Not to forget the biggest question! When is season 5 arriving?
The reading on season 4 battle pass till November 30th indicates that season 5 might come out after the pass expires. In case the pass gets extended for a couple of weeks, the release of season 5 may happen a couple of weeks into December. Rumors are going around about the addition of a few changes to make the gameplay more interesting. One of those rumors suggests that a Captain Marvel character is going to be introduced. However, there is no confirmation on that. The truth might be revealed only after season 5 is released.
