'Fortnite' Season 4 Is Here And The World Has Changed Forever

Namely, the long-awaited and highly anticipated theory crafted event of a Meteor crashing on Fortnite's Map has finally occurred.

The Omega skin is an alien-like outfit showing a dark, sleek, mysterious skin that can be upgraded as you progress through Fortnite season 4.

The comet has left a scar on the island. (There's now a bunch of makeshift construction surrounding the remnants of the comet in the center of the crater; while that all is destructible, the comet itself is sadly unbreakable.) Battle Royale's huge island also suffers other impacts: Craters now appear in a variety of locations; this was one big meteor. Many players had suspected that the Fortnite meteor was expected to crash land at Tilted Towers, but they were wrong. You can check out the full patch notes straight from Epic Games at the end of the article.

You can't rest when you're at the top, though. The developer also launched a video announcing Season 4. Fortnite v4.0 may not be quite as substantial as some players expected it to be, but the changes to the map and the new features should keep fans of the game occupied for at least a few weeks. The glowing rocks found there (and in other craters around the map) can be consumed by players to exploit gravity to their advantage, essentially creating new low-gravity combat arenas that will drastically change up how fights play out in-game.

Well, a great game is about get even greater thanks to the rollout of the 4.0 version of the iOS game, a.k.a. Fortnite Season 4.

Epic Games have been smart with a slow implementation of clues that all pointed toward a major disaster on the map. The season 4 battle pass will cost 950 V-bucks ($9.50) and includes the standard 100 tiers of loot. Only the Battle Royale mode is available on mobile platforms, but the game supports cross-play with most systems, so your progress is kept if you decide to switch. How do you like the new changes? Furthermore, you'll find numerous gameplay changes such as the ability to destroy structures on the starting island (well, not the Battle Bus), slightly reduced hitbox sizes for players' hands and support for the 4:3 aspect ratio.
