All the Changes in Maps and Battle Pass

There is a long list of changes that Fortnite brings to Chapter 4, but with a shorter season (just one month).

  • The ‘OG’ Battle Pass

The Battle Pass is named the OG Pass for the season. Parallel to the season, the battle pass is also small, having 50 tiers of throwback rewards.

Also, to cater to the smaller battle pass, the weekly changes and updates introduced in the game will be drastic throughout the season. The makers have aimed to reminisce about various eras of Chapter 1 through all the weekly changes. However, some updates will stay consistent during the month.

The four skins that are available in the battle pass might hit a strong nostalgic chord for all Fortnite veterans: Lil Split, Spectra Knight, Omegarock, and Renegade Lynx. Remember them? 

Many other cosmetic items, like loading screens, Back Blings, gliders, and other standard Fortnite accouterments, are available with the pass. Given the lower overall rewards, the pass still costs 950 V-Bucks, which may deter some players.

However, it’s important to remember that the OG Pass and the upcoming Battle Pass Chapter 5 Season 1 can both be obtained with a one-month for eleven-dollar Fortnite Crew subscription.

Also, the fast-moving season will accordingly run the ranking system. So you’ll be able to climb up quicker to Unreal Rank in the ongoing month.

  • Fortnite Season Map

Currently, the island is inspired by Chapter 1 of the fifth season, but will be upgraded to the next season in the coming week. The schedule of all the changes will remain similar to the Battle Pass, with some major changes arriving weekly. For all the players dropping at the island this week, make sure to test your brain’s recall value as Epic Games does a great job of recreating the magic! 

Fortnite brings OG weapons and shop to the gameplay as well

According to the official Epic Games brief, Fortnite’s hotfix schedule will bring drastic changes in four phases. The most exciting lineup for these planned changes has to be weapons and loot.
