After a long wait for the fans, a new season has launched today. Epic Games released the long-delayed third season for Fortnite: Chapter 2, following a massive event earlier in the week that saw the game’s battle royale island surrounded by a wall of water. The map has changed and also means a new battle pass is available (Fortnite’s seasonal subscription-like service). Players who splurge for a pass will get a number of characters to unlock, including Aquaman and Kit, a tiny kitten riding a motorcycle that also powers a mech suit.
