Epic Games has announced the start of Season 7 for Fortnite – Chapter 2. In addition to a new trailer, we also learn a lot about the new content.
The seventh season for Fortnite – Chapter 2 is imminent. To get you in the mood for all the new features, Epic Games has announced what to expect in the Battle Royale shooter in the coming weeks. Season 7 is called “Invasion” and is about a mysterious alien army that has invaded the island. Your task is to join the resistance to drive away the enemy invaders. In addition, there will be numerous new items, vehicles and, how could it be otherwise, a new Battle Pass.
The new weapons include a scout scanner to examine the environment and a pulse rifle. In the course of the season, more weapons from the resistance and alien factions will be revealed.
Epic Games has made some changes with regard to the Battle Pass. As of this season, cosmetic items are no longer tied to reaching a certain level. Instead, you will receive Battle Stars with every level up, which can then be exchanged for rewards at will. There are also special rewards on each page of the Battle Pass, such as the alien-friendly punk rocker Sunny or the synthetic artist Guggimon. However, these rewards will not be unlocked until all other rewards on this page have been claimed.
Players who claim the Battle Pass will instantly unlock the face-swapping alien Kymera. The specialty of this skin is the possibility to customize it. A total of around 80,000 possible combinations of different head shapes, eye and skin colors, patterns and armor colors are available to players. New customization options can be unlocked through found alien artifacts.
