After being dark for a day, Fortnite came back triumphant with a new map — effectively going from a black hole to a Big Bang as it introduces users to a new map and new gameplay.
Fortnite‘s not the first game to radically alter its map, though it might be the first one that did so under the pretense of a universe-ending event such as the black hole, which lingered for over a day.
The game‘s youthful audience and their parents were apparently so confused they were ringing up Epic’s customer support line to ask why they couldn’t play the game (I hope Epic’s call center employees got combat pay for that).
But now the new “chapter” of the game is live, so everyone can relax.
The map’s also been completely revamped, so the Twitch and Mixer streamers who’ve had the last year to memorize every inch of in-game real estate will have to start fresh.
Some of the new material brings to mind other games.
