A new season of Fortnite is upon us, and this one is a little… strange. Developer Epic Games is rolling out Chapter 3: Season 2 of the long-running battle royale, and it’s called Resistance. The update removes the ability to build defensive structures and adds a bunch of skins, including Doctor Strange from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
To balance this out, players now have an additional shield — called an “over shield” — for defense. Other changes include a combination of faster sprinting and climbing that makes for parkour-like movement, the addition of blimps to explore and tanks to drive, as well as a handful of new guns
With the Battle Pass, players can unlock Doctor Strange, alongside Tsuki 2.0, Gunnar, The Imagined, Kiara K.O., The Origin, and Erisa. According to the announcement, later on in the season, players will also be able to unlock world-class criminal Prowlers.
We see a bunch of characters from the game duke it out against each other. That is until, a mysterious woman walks in, pulls out a weird-looking gizmo, and eliminates all signs of player-built structures. The building aspect is one of the core components in Fortnite, acting as a defensive measure during tense moments.
Fortnite New Season brings lots of changes
This time, Fortnite is also incorporating a unique voting system, where players can fund the Resistance in exchange for some helpful tools in-game. Players can pick between a light and a heavy turret. It can mount light on a vehicle. On the other hand, the heavy turrent can be set up to inflict slow, yet heavy doses of damage.
Players will also contribute their earned gold bars to fund the iconic Battle Bus, which now looks like a Mad Max vehicle, thanks to its Cow Catcher that increases the ramming power. Once fully funded, the bus can be found in Resistance-occupied areas on the map and can be driven around.
Other changes include increased sprinting speeds, the ability to climb onto higher areas using bare hands (parkour), and one could even shoulder bash into a door to blast them open. Then there is the new Doctor Strange skin. This is to promote the new Multiverse of Madness film by Sam Raimi. You can unlock it by purchasing the battle pass system or by purchasing separately using V-Bucks.
