As expected, Season 6 brought about all sorts of changes to the battle royale map. This new consumable item changes gameplay completely.

You can't use weapons in Shadow Form, but when you do move, you get "increased movement speed, jump height and fall damage immunity". Corrupted areas have Shadow Stones scattered about, which should be consumed to "uncover their power".

Every game needs balance and Epic Games, the developers of Fortnite, know this well.

These are new areas are very similar to the layout of Fatal Fields and will be a good spot to find some chests hidden away as well as get a good amount of resources.

Epic has vaulted the suppressed submachine gun, impulse grenade, light machine gun and remote explosives as well.

For this season's battle pass, players will automatically receive two exclusive in-game outfits: Calamity and DJ Yonder.

Pets have also been added to the game, although instead of being an AI character that runs with the player, they're actually a new form of back bling.

Just like Season 5 it will have 100 new levels and 100 new rewards. In addition to new quest lines, players can take part in 10 Mini-Boss Mission Alerts per day to received gold as well as the previously mentioned evolution materials. Alas, this unfortunate bug was quickly removed from the game.

Fortnite Season 6 went live yesterday but the team over at Epic Games had a rough time with one of the new in-game items.

Fortnite is available in early access on Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

When asked how something this seemingly elaborate gets unintentionally programmed into a massive update for the most popular game in the world, the spokesperson did not elaborate further.
