Fortnite is determined to be the game where you never have to play another video game again. Not in the sense that you wouldn’t want to play others, but that you wouldn’t have to leave one specific game to enjoy everything you desire. While Roblox has a head start of many years, it seems to lack a significant impact outside the younger audience and doesn’t receive much positive press. That’s unlikely to be a problem for Fortnite Chapter 5.
Following the Big Bang event and the remarkable Chapter 4, Epic Games has released Chapter 5, which has brought an absolutely insane amount of content. The most radical changes, related to gameplay, include the ability to use riot shields, a massive update to the movement system — something that will have a huge impact on the game as many players create obstacle courses within it — and the ability to board trains that travel throughout the map. These significant changes are expected to radically alter how Fortnite is played.
There’s more to come with Chapter 5. Additionally, the Battle Pass includes two exceptional guests: Peter Griffin from the famous animated series Family Guy and Solid Snake, the protagonist of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Moreover, the big announcement for Chapter 5 is that Fortnite will expand like never before. However, we’ll still have to wait a few days for this. On December 7th, LEGO Fortnite will arrive, a construction game licensed by LEGO. On December 8th, Rocket Racing, an arcade-style racing game created by Psyonix, the makers of Rocket League, will be released. And on December 9th, Fortnite Festival will launch, a rhythm game from the creators of Rock Band that, to start, has been announced with the presence of Eminem.
Although we’ll have to wait until the end of the week to see everything included in this Chapter 5, it seems Epic has decided to expand their popular game more than ever and invite us to never leave its confines. Whether they achieve this with all these upcoming novelties remains to be seen.
