Everything new in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4

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!

New locations

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.
