The second season of the second chapter of Fortnite begins on February 20. That is two weeks later than planned. Once the game is over, it uses the Chaos system of the Unreal Engine. Many details about the new season are not yet known.
Developer Epic Games announced the release date in a blog post. The maker does not give many details yet. There are a few spoiler tags in the blog post to hide so-called text. “We can’t tell you all the secrets of the new season yet,” Epic writes. The developer writes that as long as the current season is running, there will be a number of Overtime Challenges, and a new biweekly event. Chapter 2 of the game has been playing in the first season since October. Initially it seemed that the second season would be February 6. That date appeared in game files, among other things. That will now be two weeks later.
From season two, Fortnite uses the Chaos Physics system of the Unreal Engine. What that means in practice is not yet entirely clear. Epic hasn’t told anything about that either. Possibly the new engine means that there can be more interaction with the environment. The developer writes that it is intended that “Fortnite continues to feel like Fortnite,” and therefore wants to do tests with a limited number of players first.
