Following the black hole that put an end to the first chapter of Fortnite, the popular battle royale game is back and ready to go for a brand-new season.

If you're looking for a list of all of the new things and mechanics that have been added to the game with this update, look no further!

A New Map: A totally new world with 13 new locations.

Although a leaked video from a source revealed the upgraded attributes of the new Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1, a blog post from the official gaming site confirmed the release of the upcoming season of the game.

But not everyone's happy about the changes introduced in Fortnite: Chapter 2.

In the weapons department, the new version of the game adds variants for the scoped AR, sniper, shotgun and RPGs, but also a brand new semi-automatic pistol.

Fortnite is now available for PS4, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Mobile devices. Players can also swim and catch fish through fishing activities. Fans spent two days without being able to log into the game, but, thankfully, it's returned. Players can upgrade the rarity of their weapons in the inventory using in-game materials.

Garrett alleged on Twitter that a fan tried to get his picture taken with him before punching him in the face. A Browns spokesman said the team is aware and the appropriate law enforcement authorities have been notified.

The new map blends the old and the new in such a way that it's not a total shock for players - much like Season 3: Meltdown in Apex Legends - meaning newbies can come in and enjoy without the rest knowing exactly where all the good spots are (for now).

Fortnite earned US$2.4 billion (S$3.3 billion) in revenue past year, more than any other single title, according to Nielsen data.

Something new to Fortnite with this update is the ability to hide in haystacks and dumpsters to get the jump on your enemies.

This includes reports of settings being reset following the launch of the significant Chapter 2 update. And suddenly the player is back into his first solo battle royale game.

It was reported that "Fortnite: Chapter 2" is now downloadable but in China only as of this time. Is the new map as cool as you'd hoped? So if you're eager to jump into Fortnite's latest chapter to see what's new, today's the day.

We all know how important it is to find Upgrade Benches to upgrade your weapons.
