After having postponed the launch of the new Fortnite season in solidarity with protesters protesting police brutality and racial discrimination in the United States, Epic Games reveals the news that will reach the popular battle royal.
The theme for Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 3 is water. Several parts of the map have been flooded and now you can even Wake Surf by being pulled by a shark. To move around the map you will have access to new vehicles such as 4x4s, speedboats, and even a helicopter to perform aerial ambushes.
