For the fourth chapter of its long-running Battle Royale, Fortnite has unveiled a slew of new additions to the gameplay experience. Leading the lineup is an entirely new island with an immersive variety of environments to explore throughout the realm.

After landing on the new island, players can head to the Citadel, an old-age castle ruled by a breed called “The Ageless.” From there, they can head to Anvil Square, a town set in the forest and surrounded by icy mountaintops. While it may look serene, developers warn that there is more to the Square than meets the eye. There’s also Brutal Bastion, the headquarters of the Reality Warriors. Players can take them on by using their pickaxe to make a snowball, which they can then jump inside and roll over their enemies.

Alongside the new landscapes, developers have introduced an exciting mode of transportation to traverse the land: dirtbikes. Riding the two-wheel Trail Thrasher, players can perform tricks, as well as use their weapons while they speed around.

On the weapons side, chapter 4 introduces a series of new firearms, including the Tactical Pistol, Twin Mag SMG, Thunder Shotgun, Maven Auto Shotgun and more. A Shockwave Hammer, meanwhile, injures opponents while launching them far away.

Fortnite players can check out the entire list of updates coming in chapter 4 season 1.
