Welcome to Paradise
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 is here, following one of the more popular seasons in recent memory.
As is always the case with a new Fortnite season, we have some map changes, new items, and more to go over before hopping into Fortnite for the first time.
Let’s take a look at what we got!
The map changes are typically the most significant updates to new Fortnite seasons, and Chapter 3 Season 4 is no different.
Chrome has taken over the map and transformed several of the existing POIs.
The changes include:
- New POI: Shimmering Shrine
- Daily Bugle is now Lustrous Lagoon
- Logjam Woodworks is now Logjam Junction
- Sanctuary is now Herald’s Sanctum
- The Jonses is now Fort Jonsey
- Reality Falls is now Reality Tree
- Condo Canyon is now Cloudy Condos
Although these are all of the major changes, there are still some biome swaps and other smaller map adjustments. Drop in and take a look!

New mechanic: Slide Kick
Sliding has been in Fortnite since Chapter 3 began, but Epic added a new wrinkle to it in Season 4.
Now, you’ll be able to kick your opponent back by sliding into them – a milder version of hitting someone with a car.
It’s not a game-changer, but it’s another quality-of-life improvement to go along with everything else added to Chapter 3 Season 4.
