After the events of yesterday when Epic Games destroyed the map we have now embarked on Fortnite Chapter 2. After almost a whole day of just staring at that black hole Fortnite is back and it has new content. We had the same essential map on Fortnite for almost two years now, albeit with major changes from time to time. It even had its own story and now Fortnite has revamped it all with a whole new map. This new map has more vegetation and rougher terrain, and even rivers where players can go for a swim. It resembles the Sanhok map on PUBG quite a bit.
