Fornite players won’t need to mourn much longer, Chapter 2 is here and downloadable for gamers across PC and consoles.
The update isn’t small for PC users, coming in at 16GB, while PS4 gamers can expect a 9GB download and iOS gamers a relatively light 192MB.
The game’s developer Epic hasn’t yet said when the game will be back online after the update, but as that update is now available for download it is likely to be very soon.
An official trailer has now been released too, following the leaked trailer for Chapter 2, Season 1 offering fans glimpses of the new map and exciting features.
The popular video game was taken offline and fans left with only an image of a black hole following the conclusion of chapter one, season 10 on Sunday.
The game, which pits up to 100 players against each other to fight to be the last combatant standing on a shrinking virtual map, went offline without any indication of when it would be back up.
The game makers won a lot of attention during the in-game apocalyptic end to season 10 when ongoing matches were interrupted by an asteroid shower which destroyed the virtual map players fought on.
The cataclysmic event then saw the map collapse into a black hole, but the new teaser trailer reveals this black hole resolving into a puddle, showing a four person team exploring the new map.
According to the trailer, the next season of Fortnite appears to be getting an entirely new map with different locations for players.
These locations include a river and a fishing pond which players will be able to drive a boat through and even go fishing in, with new ways to level up for players including fishing.
The trailer also shows a player bouncing around on pogo sticks as well as carrying seemingly wounded comrades.
Other players win battle medal upgrades for taking out an opponent with a headshot, a scavenger medal upgrade for opening a treasure box, and a survivor medal upgrade for apparently chopping down a tree.
