Fortnite's latest season is coming to a close, but Chapter 2: Season 6 is ready to start on March 16th. Uniquely for the popular battle royale, that's kicks off with a special single-player narrative event, called the Zero Crisis Finale.
Outlined by Epic Games on a recent blog post, this event will bridge the gap between Season 5 and 6, showing the "conclusion of Agent Jones’ mission". It's one that's seen iconic characters like the Terminator, Predator, Ryu & Chun-Li and Ripley & the Xenomorph Queen appear throughout.
Unlike previous events, which required players to log in at a specific time, Zero Crisis Finale begins when you first log into Season 6, letting you join when it's convenient. That could be a response to previous server issues, considering December's Galactus event saw 15.3 million players log in at the same time.
Epic Games has also confirmed plans to let players watch this live premiere online first, should you prefer it. Calling it "our most ambitious story cinematic yet", stream details haven't been confirmed just yet, but we'd expect those to appear soon.
Fortnite gets a bad wrap but I love it! Some things they added weren't that great but I love how ambitious they get with the live events!
@Jackpaza0508 in 2019 I said I would never play it then 2020 happened and I couldn't see my son for a few months. He loves fortnite so I started playing it so that I could talk to him and got into the game. We now play a few times a week.
i gave it a go back when chapter 2 came out but it wasn't really my cup of tea, props to them though they're really going that extra mile
Fortnite is not a bad game by any means. The problem was it was so incredibly popular that people started to hate on it. I actually don't like it because I dislike most battle royales not because fortnite suckz lolz. I just don't think it was a good enough game to warrant how insanely popular it was but it's good and I can see why people like it
I'd give this a go if I still had Fortnite but I deleted it because I'm low on SD card space.
The fan base got loaded with toxic kids and it ruind the game for me, its just not a nice time, but Its not like the games crap just the community.
Yikes!! Save the World anyone!?
These events always get me to jump back in. 🤗
Admittedly got into the game when they added Mando, Kratos and Master Chief. I HAD to get Baby Yoda. Played with a friend so it was really nice to have the in-game chat on the Switch, really wish this was integrated into Mario Kart, SSBU, and a lot of other premium multiplayer experiences Nintendo has (looking at you Splatoon 2 & 3!). Here's hoping Nintendo finally grows up with it's online soon so we can talk in parties / with friends without that stupid app, may as well use WhatsApp or Discord as an alternative
@GVIL That's an awesome story about how gaming was able to keep people connected during one of the toughest years we've ever faced.
@Kilamanjaro Its 2021. If I don't know somebody well enough to have their phone number or email address and chat to them via google meet or somesuch then it is unlikely I want to be playing online with them using audio communications.
@Ghostchip I find the main issue is that it IS a good game, it just has a terrible shooting system.
At this point they arent going to change it but its not easy to control
Been playing this game a lot since it was out on switch.
I now play it on my ps5 exclusively though. I finish each battle pass, and play this a lot with my kids. Lovely game with a great amount of depth in the gameplay.
Looking forward to another season. My switch will main monster Hunter though - funny how those roles will now be reversed between the systems, lol.
They're doing a Batman crossover comic and in the third issue, he'll fight Snake Eyes
Yes, that Snake Eyes
Single player content in an online Battle Royale? Really not sure how that'll work, but last time I played was back when "Save the World" was a thing back in 2018 I think
@RadioHedgeFund I don't understand how your point relates to talking to someone while playing the same game. I obviously have that person's contact information I'm playing with but I'm not gonna throw up a Google meets session just to chat with them. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding 😅
Haven't played Fortnite in a while but I like to check out the new seasons when they arrive.
@Kilamanjaro It was more that voice chatting with strangers is a big no-no and because so many games these days are cross platform Nintendo’s lack of internal voice chat seems less of an issue than it used to be.
I play Fortnite once a week with some friends and between us it’s 1x PC, 2x PS4, 1x Switch and 1x Xbox so we just throw up a Google Meet chat and go from there. I imagine others in the same boat.
I played for a bit, then dropped out sometime back, never to return. They allllllmost got me to do it when they introduced Cable & Domino skins (and then later Storm and Wolverine)
But not even the temptation of adding some of my favorite mutants could get me to re-download the game again
'Member when Fortnite was about building forts at night to fight zombies? I 'member!
@RadioHedgeFund ahh.yeah, okay then yeah I agree with you. Still wouldn't kill them to have party chats in-game, I'm always throwing up different apps depending on the person so from a UX perspective it is a bit clunky
@pixelpatch I didn't find it that hard to control myself but I didn't play it for very long so maybe I just ignored it because I disliked the game anyway because im not one for battle royales
@pixelpatch I find the shooting system works just fine on Switch using gyro controls. I couldn't stand it on PS4 using analog to aim, but with gyro you can be much more precise with your shooties.
@onex Gyro would definitely help! I just find it odd that they cant have good gyro AND analog (Splatoon does a decent job of both) in a game that has made so much.
But at the same time, the game is a huge success so maybe im just off my rocker? Simpler / more user friendly controls /aiming would of been nice.
@pixelpatch yes, you use them in tandem! Analog to aim in the general area, then gyro for precision. 😀
@onex Thats how i play BoTW, love it!
