Out with the Wilds, in with the Last Resort. Fortnite’s latest season kicks off today — bringing the battle royale game up to Chapter 4: Season 4 — and, as teased yesterday, this new drop comes with a heist theme. But not just any heist: this time around, the island has been given a handful of luxurious locations thanks to a new character.
Vampire Kado Thorne has made the Island his home in Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 4, draining the Island’s wealth and treasures to fund some pretty fancy real estate: Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate. Heist goods from Thorne’s properties to take back what belongs to the Island — and more importantly — to thwart Thorne’s ultimate plan. The fate of the Island is at stake, and thievery’s the last resort. So are you in?
The result, as per usual, is a slightly updated map that looks like this:
The heist theme also comes with a number of associated gameplay changes. You can sneak into any of the new locations to loot powerful items, and there is new gear — including the Rocket Ram, which lets you shoot out of the building once you have the goods — to go along with this. There are even heist bags, which are like chests that only contain gear for heists. My favorite addition? A briefcase that turns into a turret when thrown on the ground. There are also towers now dotted across the island, which you can use to learn about future storm movements.
