So yes, Fortnite lives, albeit in a leaked trailer, and while it looked like all hope was lost as the game lost popularity when those family YouTube accounts stopped making videos about children stealing their parents’ credit cards to buy V-Bucks, this all just seems like a genius marketing ploy.
It’s like New Coke all over again.
Chapter 2 of Fortnite is very much on the way, with The End just being a blip in the everlasting history of the free-to-play cross-platform game, and while there haven’t been any official statements from Epic Games just yet, Skin-Tracker on Twitter managed to leak the trailer for the upcoming gameplay.
Have a watch; a lot has changed…
So now you can ride pogo sticks.
Is that it? Well no of course it isn’t, but I’d argue that the pogo sticks are the most noteworthy addition to Fortnite. You know? Stop shooting each other and start bouncing. What a world that would be.
You know if everyone in China bounced at the same time, it would be a colossal waste of time.
Anyway, along with the pogo sticks, you can now get on a boat, which is pretty cool, albeit a treat for snipers, you can go fishing, presumably for loot and whatnot, and guess what? Diving. You can go diving.
The changes are mainly aquatic, I’ll be honest, but you know, that’s not a bad thing.
It’s different, for sure.
Basically, if you spent a load of money on V-bucks, it wasn’t necessarily a waste… just yet.
