The first trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 reveals a new map and Spider-Man, web-swinging, sliding, and other features.
Epic Games has officially introduced Fortnite Chapter 3 and stated that the battle royale would feature Spider-Man, Gears of War heroes, new systems, and much more. Furthermore, Fortnite will be the first commercial game to use Epic’s new Unreal Technology 5, making it the first to utilise Epic’s new engine fully. As a result, Chapter 3 is the most significant substantial upgrade to Fortnite to date, and it nearly feels like it’s an entirely new game.
For quite some time, Epic Games has been teasing the upcoming event. It’s been widely speculated that Fortnite Chapter 3 will be a completely new game, making sense. The Chapter 2 update gave Fortnite a graphical makeover and brought a slew of new robust ideas like fishing, swimming, and more, all while enriching the lore with a slew of crossover events. Fortnite Chapter 2 has transformed the game from a simple battle royale to a full-fledged multi-media experience, and Chapter 3 looks to take things even farther.
Fortnite Chapter 3’s debut teaser featured a large new region with POIs like the Daily Bugle. Chapter 3 will also bring Spider-Man with real web-swinging physics, tornadoes, other wildlife, weaponry, sliding, and much more, in addition to the map. Epic has also stated that the game would be released using Unreal Engine 5, though it is unknown what benefits the new engine will provide. Before the Chapter 2 finale, the Fortnite Chapter 3 teaser leaked, offering fans a taste of what’s to come in the latest chapter before its official reveal.
Fortnite Chapter 3 makes significant improvements to the popular battle royale game. It not only advances the plot and introduces a slew of new amusing cosmetic items, but it also introduces new gameplay elements that make the game more fluid and enjoyable to play. These are typically reserved for sequels, but Epic Games appears to have discovered a way to retain Fortnite as a real live-service game while evolving it significantly. Sliding will make gaming feel more tactical, while web-swinging will introduce an entirely new approach to traverse the map.
According to a recent leak, Fortnite will feature a Matrix crossover later this month, most likely to coincide with the new film’s release. Given the plot of the Matrix films, this crossover will most likely be one of the first new content drops in Chapter 3, and it’s a perfect fit for Fortnite. There’s no way of knowing what the remainder of Chapter 3 has in store for gamers right now, but this is a tremendously exciting start for the next few years of Fortnite.
