A very special end of the season, since the event that normally concludes each end of the season will take place here at the beginning of the next one, tomorrow. Entitled “Zero Crisis”, this one is played solo and leads you to meet the Foundation, one of the Seven, with which you try to seal the Zero Point in a stone tower. A mission full of success, but which had consequences: all traces of technology were removed, completely upsetting the landscape of the island.
Fortnite’s Season 6 is full of novelties
This new season thus rebates all the maps, and invites you to discover a wild environment dotted here and there other towers, the Gardiennes, defended by mysterious forces. As for weapons, do not expect to find them so easily in chests, as before… And for good reason: you will also have to make them, using the loot found on wildlife, as well as the remaining technologies spared by the shock wave. So build your own arsenal and create weapons capable of dealing big damage, like the “Primitive Rifle”, your new beloved toy.
But it’s not that you won’t find weapons in chests, since some, armored, are scattered all over the map hard, allowing you to get your hands on powerful weapons of rare or legendary level, like the rocket launcher. This new season also offers you the possibility to tame wildlife, such as chickens, wolves or wild boars, to feed you, but also to recover manufacturing materials. Note that many additions are planned throughout the season, such as all-terrain tires that will allow you to drive everywhere without slowing down your vehicle.
New season, new battle pass!
This season 6 of Fortnite would not be much without his combat pass and concerning it, lots of nice things are planned, similar to what we could have in the previous season. Just know that among the new skins available, you will find Lara Croft (in its latest video game version, as well as a more classic with ice axe and specific glider), a new version of the agent Jonesy, but also Neymar Jr or the super-heroine DC Raven.
Note that the PSG player had already teased his arrival in the app signed Epic Games, on Twitter, a few days ago.
