This day in Fortnite history: Chapter 2 began

Today, Fortnite Chapter 2 turns two years old, significantly outlasting the duration of Chapter 1.

Chapter 2 was a rebirth for the game - for better of for worse. We entered a new map, a new Battle Pass system, and the beginning of wholesale changes to the game.

Chapter 2 Season 1, itself, was actually one of the most boring seasons we've seen in Fortnite. Season 1 and 2 were agonizingly long and featured hardly any updates.

We got a new swimming mechanic, fishing, a new map, and that's about it. Most of the more interesting Chapter 2 mechanics came later on.

Competitive players generally liked the new season - partly because of the lack of changes and the basic meta. For most people, it lasted WAY too long.

Regardless of whether or not you like the new map and the first season of Chapter 2, it turns two years old today.
