The launch trailer showcases a new and different map from previous Fortnite version.

Other additions include the ability to carry wounded comrades to safety (which is a pleasant enough addition), a gun that shoots bandages (which somehow heals you, because game logic), and fishing (which I didn't know I wanted but by golly, I want it now).

After more than a day of downtime, the black hole in Fortnite has closed, the servers have been flipped back on, and Chapter 2 is now live. On the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Chapter 2 update clocks in at around 20GB.

If you can't stand waiting for it to download, then the official Fortnite Twitter account is now live streaming a playtest of the refreshed Fortnite Chapter Two game on a brand new island map, which you can watch in the video below - or on the DrLupo Twitch stream. For example, a player can make their green weapon into a more powerful blue weapon and so on.

How will this new map evolve over the course of the season? It's said that Battle Pass, a tiered premium service that lets players earn new items by satisfying certain requirements in-game, progression has been reworked completely moving forward, so let's get into what's new.

The Fortnite new map is finally here.

Hideouts & Explosives: Hide in haystacks and dumpsters or shoot explosive barrels. Including Elon Musk's attempt to take the blame, again, for ruining the lives of more people than we can count, by saying he bought the entire game and shut it down. There are also awesome new "synced" emotes that allow you to do neat things with a partner, like give each other a high-five.
