Fortnite Season 4 LIVE: New Chapter 2 release update, Marvel hero skins, map changes and Apple BAN updates
FORTNITE season 4 is fast approaching, and in it some of the biggest Marvel heroes join forces to help save the battle royale island.
The new season, which is technically Chapter 2: Season 4, is dubbed “Nexus War,” and it’s a comic book-style event where major characters team up to fight off the planet-destroying villain Galactus.
Those buying Fortnite’s seasonal battle pass will be able to unlock the likes of Iron Man, Storm, Mystique, Doctor Doom, Groot, and She-Hulk, along with an amnesiac Thor.
Fortnite has long been home to licensed superhero characters, from The Avengers and Batman.
But to have a whole themed season is new for the battle royale game.
The newest update follows season three where a giant storm flooded the island.
The new season comes as the game will stay banned on Apple devices for the foreseeable future, a judge has ruled.
Epic Games tried to overturn the ban on iPhones and iPads – but was denied in courts.
It comes just over a week after Apple removed Fortnite from its App Store for breaking the rules.
Apple takes a 30 per cent cut of money earned by apps through the App Store – and Epic Games tried to dodge this fee.
Both firms are now embroiled in a legal dispute over the ban.
US District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers said Apple was fine to ban Fortnite.
But the judge ruled that Apple couldn’t block Epic Games’ developer accounts.
The judge also said Apple couldn’t prevent developers from using Epic Games’ very popular Unreal Engine – a tool used to make video games.
