The success has to be applauded. With the announcement of Season 6, Epic Games has announced major changes and introduced a number of new things to the game. Not only do we get to see pets in the game, but we also get a to see a ton of new skins, the much requested OG music and a newly revamped map featuring the mysterious cube dubbed as “Kevin”.
With Season 6, Epic is yet again willing to shake things up with gameplay. Not only did they remove the bounce pads, but instead, they’ve introduced new Chiller trap with Fortnite update 6.0.1. With the introduction of the Chiller pad, players have found new ways and ideas to use the new pads to their advantage. Additional shifts Epic has been making with the introduction of Fortnite Season 6 is by committing to make spatial audio a thing in Fortnite by rewarding players who take advantage of even the slightest audio cues around them. This not only adds to a much immersive environment, but also makes the environment that much more competitive given that players can now pinpoint the where the sound is originating from.
There’s a ton of support from the Fortnite community to make Fortnite as competitive as possible. With the introduction of such changes to the audio and other parts of the game, we’re intrigued to see how long Fortnite’s success lasts. By the current looks of it, Fortnite isn’t dying anytime soon.
