Fortnite has changed the map around a bit for Chapter 4, Season 2
Fortnite has changed a lot of its meta up for Chapter 4, Season 2. While items and weapons have been cycled through, maybe the most obvious change that came to season two of chapter four is the giant new portion of the map.
There’s a whole new huge land to explore if you’re dropping in for the first time, and it’s nothing like the rest of the map. In the fourth chapter’s first season, there were three distinct biomes; the autumn/medieval biome, the farm biome, and the snow biome.
While the medieval biome was mostly in the northwest portion of the map, there was a small portion in the southeast part of the map. With the arrival of the fourth chapter’s second season, there is now a new Tokyo biome that has landed nearly exclusively on that patch of medieval biome in the southeast.
The most impressive part is that it really didn’t take anything away from the game, besides two guard towers, two small village POIs, and Faulty Splits.
Added to Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 map:
- Mega City
- Steamy Springs
- Kenjutsu Crossing
- Knotty Nets
Removed from Fortnite’s Chapter 4, Season 2 map:
- Faulty Splits
- Some of Frenzie Fields
The new additions are a great improvement
Mega City is a great addition to the game, as it gives a lot to explore, and multiple levels to attack in. Steamy Springs gives fans a smaller local to not only drop in on but to also use the springs to recover health.
Kenjutsu Crossing is arguably the second biggest POI added to the map and gives players a maze-like castle to explore and do battle in. Then there’s Knotty Nets, a small fishing outpost that allows you access to the new river on the map.
If that wasn’t enough, the arrival of the new biome actually extended the southeastern portion of the map. How wild is that?
