Battle royale hit enters the fifth chapter – launch trailer


Before the big event with Eminem starts, Epic Games has already uploaded the launch trailer for Chapter 5. Here you can see what innovations “Fortnite” will introduce shortly.


The big bang follows at 8 p.m.! But even before the spectacular live event with rap legend Eminem, we found out what would happen next. Epic Games has uploaded the trailer for Chapter Five, which illustrates the new map and gameplay improvements.

As with every chapter so far, the responsible development team leads with it a new island a. The factions of society and the underground fight each other at the various landing sites. There is also a train making its rounds on the map, which you can of course enter. Computer-controlled as well as real opponents are lurking here.

No matter where you end up: You’ll find new weapons everywhere that can also be modified! To do this, simply go to a mod bank that you can find in the vaults. You need enough gold bars to customize your weapon. If you have one, you can reduce the recoil, increase the magazine size, and more.

Revamped gameplay and cool skins

In addition, the gameplay and especially the movement have been revised. You feel this when you climb over obstacles or enter openings. In addition, you can now use the Grappler not only to move around, but also to attack opponents.

A new Battle Pass is of course also launching. It includes, among other things, skins of the “Family Guy” protagonist and Snake from “Metal Gear Solid”.

Incidentally, the Eminem performance mentioned at the beginning starts at 8 p.m. So log into the game immediately if you want to follow the action live.

According to the official site, downtime begins at 5:30 a.m. However, the servers may go offline immediately after the live event. At least sometime tomorrow you can play the fifth chapter. Check out the trailer here.
