Fortnite premieres its Season 9 with new locations among other content

Epic Games details their latest patch and celebrates it with a new cinematic trailer.


The Island of Fortnite is no longer as we know it. The eruption of the famous volcano on the battle royale map has left a lot of destruction behind, and from its ashes the designers of the video game of Epic games have seen fit to create several new locations, among which stand out Neo-Tilted Y Colosal Shopping Center, which we can see in the cinematic trailer that accompanies the news.


To move around all these places, those responsible for production have seen fit to devise a new wind transport system: the rebufos. Likewise, and for 950 V-Bucks, players can now purchase the latest battle pass of the multiplayer adventure that gives access to 100 levels and more than 100 new rewards.
