Fortnite Is Going Sci-Fi
Season 9 of Fortnite begins with the aftermath of the Unvaulting event of Season 8. This event left Tilted Towers and Retail Row completely destroyed and Polar Peak damaged by the volcano’s eruption. These things aren’t always bad; sometimes it’s a chance to start anew and build something even better. Fortnite Season 9 took this opportunity and made some state of the art versions of Tilted Towers and Retail Row, complete with a new feature called Slipstreams. These locations are renamed as Neo Tilted and Mega Mall, respectively. The new buildings are in pretty much the same places as the old ones, but shinier.
It wouldn’t be much of a new season if it were just a remodeling. The Slipstreams, which were mentioned above, are new ways of travelling quickly. They’re like the part in Finding Nemo with the turtles. Just jump into one and let yourself be taken away. They can be found in Neo Tilted and Mega Mall. There are also floating bases with air vents leading up to them. The vents function similar to the geysers. The volcano is also hollowed out and now has a factory-esque area inside. There’s a lot of catwalk and stuff.
This season’s Battle Pass is still priced at 950 V-Bucks. In addition to the rewards like outfits in the Battle Pass, Season 9 is also introducing Fortbytes. These will be used to unlock secrets and hidden items, but it is not yet quite how they will work. For more information about Season 9, you can check out Epic Games.
