Today marks the begging of a new season in Fortnite, which brings with it new weapons, environments, enemy types and, of course, a new battle pass! (Wuba Luba Dub) Dubbed Invasion, Chapter 2, Season 7 brings UFOs into the battlefield, giving players a bigger challenge to compete against as they battle or that all-important Victory Royale. Thankfully these unknown foes can also be used to aid us in victory as they can be hacked, allowing you to fire powerful blasts at enemies and pick up anything that isn’t bolted down and throw at enemies, NPCs or even just a random petrol station.
Of course, UFO’s aren’t the only danger we are going to face in this new season, as the Imaginary order (IO) have returned, and several of these soldiers are primed and ready on the battlefield to ensure our game is not an easy one. Thankfully we will have many returning favourites to assist us in terms of weapons, including pistols, sniper rifles and much more. The IO’s and invaders have also brought with them a load of new toys for us to battle both them and the UFO’s with, including the rail gun, which will allow us to shoot through structures, the pulse rifle, a ray gun and much more, which will be revealed as the season progresses. We will also have access to a range of vaulted weapons as we will be able to craft our own burst assault rifles, rapid-fire SMGs, and lever action shotguns through nuts and bolts.
Moving onto the battle pass, a lot has changed for Fortnite, as the levelling system we saw in previous seasons is now gone. Instead, when you level up, you will be rewarded a new currency, allowing you to buy any item from the battle pass instantly, in any order you please. Naturally, some items cost more than others, but this season is sure to keep fans happy, with mad scientist Rick Sanchez joining the madness. Later in the season, we will also see the indestructible man of steel, Superman join the battle pass. On top of this, the battle pass will include tonnes of cosmetic items for you to enjoy, including a build your own alien, with over 50 customisation options and hundreds of combinations.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is available to download now and is a free update for Fortnite Battle Royale and will be available until September 12th! Will you be joining the hunt? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook and Twitter pages, which you can find and follow below.
