Now, we’re getting a relatively extensive look at the game courtesy of a leaked trailer that found its way to the internet via a tweet (before being swiftly deleted). The trailer confirms that this is an all new map complete with a fishing pond, a waterfall, a river (which we saw in the previous leak), and the aforementioned boats.
The boats especially look wicked cool with room for four players. There also appears that this Fortnite “reboot” includes the ability to dive and swim, carry wounded players, and hide in containers. There are even exploding gas stations if you’re into that sort of thing. There’s a lot of other things to unpack from this leaked trailer, and Fortnite fans are already dissecting every single second of footage in this reddit thread.
The trailer also makes mention of new ways to level up, along with new skins and emotes, which should be just enough new content for gamers that may have thought that the old map and gameplay mechanics had gotten a bit stale.
If the previous rumors were accurate, we should see Epic Games flip the switch on Chapter 2, Season 1 tomorrow at 6am EST. Until then, stay thirsty my friends and get ready for some kickass new gaming experiences in Fortnite.
