We'll have to see what exactly launches with the release of Fortnite Season 4, but we're eagerly awaiting news of what one of the most popular games in the world has in store around the corner. One looks like meteor, and the other looks like a tower. "Fortnite facilitates an environment that allows players to get creative, innovate and show off their mastery of their skills".
In October 2017 Epic Games began a series of lawsuits against two prolific cheaters in Fortnite. The fact that Season 4 is coming isn't a new idea or unique in itself, but it's the image alongside the announcement that's causing a commotion.
Part of that success comes from the newfound popularity of the battle royale genre that Fortnite tapped into. The caption says, "Battle".
The superhero image in the meteor may have disproved many players' theories, but the meteor will definitely hit the map. We've been waiting for a meteor to finally break through the atmosphere and come crashing down into Tilted Towers, but what if the meteor isn't actually bringing destruction? Fortnite is the top grossing title on consoles, ahead of traditional games like Far Cry 5, Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, and Call of Duty: WWII. This wouldn't be too much of a surprise given that games such as Rocket League and Skyrim have done this already, and we can already imagine ourselves running around in little Toad mushroom hats, representing the Switch user base with style.
Ohio's Ashland University has announced that their esports program is adding Fortnite's Battle Royale mode to its offerings this autumn, as revealed by head coach Josh Buchanan, meaning that it'll be the first known collegiate program in the U.S. to add the game to its official esports program.
Something that may delay the start of season 4 is its battle pass.
