As of today, June 17, 2020, Season 3 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is available with a new battle pass and a remodeled island that has been partially flooded.
Fortnite: Battle Royale premieres its Season 3 of Chapter 2 today. The update’s downtime has already occurred and Epic Games has shared two new trailers to commemorate the launch of this new phase. A lot of new things are coming to the game, with an island that has finally flooded and the arrival of such popular skins as Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
Of course, Fortnite’s Season 3 brings as its main new attraction a completely revamped battle pass that maintains the essence of the last one seen last season. In other words, the lobby becomes a small base as a center of operations where on this occasion we can meet new characters like Aquaman (an ideal choice given the theme of this summer stage) or Jules, the chief engineer who creates wonders like a mechanized owl.
In addition, this season we will be able to completely customize our battle umbrella, an icon of Fortnite that for the first time can be designed to our liking so that each player has a totally unique one.
Another novelty is that the island has finally changed as expected and is now largely flooded. Many areas have gone underwater and others have floated away. The map, as we can see, has received a considerable update. Not only that, but there are new ways of moving like cars, trucks or even sharks that we can grab on to as if we were surfing the waters.
On top of that, as we saw this past Monday during The Device’s live event, Midas’ plan to destroy the storm did not go as expected and now the classic storm has turned into a giant tsunami that threatens to damage everything in its path. This new storm advances progressively by locking players in and expelling them if they are caught riding in vehicles.
