Fortnite Season 9
PS4, Xbox One, PC, Android, iOS
Fortnite’s volcano has erupted and destroyed Tilted Towers – the most popular area in the game. Season 9 begins this week – and there are significant changes to the map as well as the gameplay.
Neo Tilted has appeared in TT’s place as a futuristic battle to the death.
There’s a glossy new Mega Mall with the delights of Peely’s Banana Stand and Nugget Hut instead of the old Retail Row.
And balloons have been vaulted – dropped from play, at least for now – and in their place we have a new method of transport called the Slipstream.
Wind tunnels now zoom people across the map and you can still use air vents to navigate from building to building.
If you’re a fan of the best value free game on the market, it’s worth paying a few quid for a Battle Pass. These give you access to bonus items and skins, unlocked by a variety of challenges that will help keep you on your toes.
