Fortnite is getting new game modes

While the map is an obvious change, there’s something that fans might not have expected to see at all! Fortnite will get three new game modes:

  1. Fortnite Rocket Racing: This is said to be a Fortnite racing mode but with added Rocket League mechanics.
  2. Lego Fortnite: This is basically a Minecraft-like builder mode but with Legos.
  3. Fortnite Festival: This is going to be a rhythm game where players play through the game while matching their actions to the music playing.

Gameplay mechanics

Players will now be able to wall-run and wall-kick. It looks like Epic Games is turning this game into a full-on brawler. Weapons will now have attachments, which will have an additional slot in inventory. These attachments would be for one of three things:

  • optics,
  • accuracy,
  • recoil.

There are rumors that this new chapter will bring first-person mode to Fortnite. Further, it is also being said that ice is now an element that spreads through the map. It will make things slippery, and players can thaw it using fire.

Ice grenade launchers and ice grenade launchers will also allow players to cover the ground with ice.

If all of these things turn out to be factual, Chapter 5 would be something of a revolution. There has not been a season lately that has changed the game so drastically.

“Stories hit way better when you are part of them!” Which is why I am a gamer first, writer second and a filmmaker as well. Being associated with movies has given me a very different perspective on gaming. Writing about video games has been on my mind for years and being an eSports writer at EssentiallySports gave me that chance.
