The description of the trailer elaborates on what fans can expect from the upcoming chapter. It states:
Fortnite Battle Royale takes on a striking new appearance in Underground. Discover an entirely new Island with POI’s that feature the factions of The Society versus the Underground. Seek your revenge for the kidnapping of poor Peely with an entirely fresh arsenal of weapons and items. And of course with a new season, you’ll find the Big Bang Battle Pass with pages of new cosmetics. Check out the line up of Outfits geared up and ready for action from daybreak until dawn.
Located in vaults are Mod Benches, which have mods available for many weapons in exchange for Bars. Add mods that reduce recoil, increase mag capacity, and more! Save up your Bars wisely, though, as not every mod works with every weapon.
The Outfits are Underground underdogs and The Society’s crème de la crooked. With the Big Bang Battle Pass purchase, you’ll auto-unlock troublemaker Hope, the hope of The Underground. Progress in the Battle Pass to unlock more Outfits:
- Vengeance Jones
- Peter Griffin
The Big Bang Battle Pass also has an unlockable Car Body! Get your Sports Car ready-to-strike with Scorpion. The Battle Pass also has unlockable Decals for the Scorpion’s exterior.
Fortnite and its fifth chapter are available now on all consoles, mobile, and PC.
