Fortnite’s next destination is MEGA City

  • The focus of Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 2 is “MEGA” and MEGA City.
  • A deluge of new content has been added to the game including vehicles, weapons, skins and more.
  • Eren Jaeger from Attack on Titan will be added later in the season.

As sure as the sun rises Fortnite will get new content, and for Chapter 4 Season 2 – entitled “MEGA” – there’s quite a lot to see and do in the new MEGA City.

MEGA City is defined by a vaguely cyberpunk aesthetic, futuristic samurai motifs and movement. Said movement is accomplished thanks to grind rails throughout the city that give us flashbacks to various 3D Sonic games as well as Sunset Overdrive. Those who prefer wheels to rails can find new vehicles in the forms of the Victory Crown Rogue bike and Nitro Drifter car.

The combination of rail grinding and vehicles are combined with the Attack on Titan Omni-directional mobility gear. Yes MEGA is also a cross over with Eren Jaeger joining the game as a skin later in the season, available through the Battle Pass.

Other new, original skins have been added along with new weapons, items and more.

You can see a gameplay trailer of MEGA City in the embed below and if we’re pretty sure you could remove the Fortnite branding and convince people this is an entirely different game.

It’s a bit strange that Eren Jaeger is kind of awkwardly included here, literally shoved into the corner of the trailer’s thumbnail.

Lastly for the MEGA update is something that may be important for players on older versions of Windows.

“As previously announced, starting with Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 2, players will be required to use Windows 10 or higher in order to continue playing Fortnite natively on PC in an officially supported manner. Windows 7 and 8 are now officially unsupported in Fortnite,” the update notes read.

Said notes go on to suggest that players on Windows 7 and 8 should consider instead playing Fortnite through NVIDIA GeForce NOW instead.

We have to wonder just how many players are being left behind by this decision. According to measurements by Statcounter, Windows 7 accounts for 5.34 percent of total Windows users, Windows 8.1 for 1.14 percent, and Windows 8 for 0.52 percent. These figures are reflected as of February 2023.

While that may sound like relatively small pockets of people, the sheer popularity of Fortnite means that there’s likely a decent chunk of people who may lose access to the game. Only Epic will have the true number of players still active on these platforms, but it seems like the trouble of supporting older Windows versions outweighs this mystery number.
