Fortnite Season 9 introduces a new-look Tilted Towers

With the update for Fortnite Season 9 nearly here, data miners have been busy diving through the game files to find whatever they can.

There's a lot that's new in Fortnite Season 9, that includes the map changes listed above, as well as the new collectible Fortbytes that will arrive alongside the Weekly Battle Pass Challenges. Epic have also created wraps to complete sets including the Beast Mode and the Dino Guard set.

Season 9 of Fortnite Battle Royale is officially here, and it has brought plenty of major changes to the popular video game title.

The new Slip Streams - which work a bit like Volcano Vents, or the tubes in Futurama - running around the outside of the area add a new dimension to proceedings, not only allow you to get around quickly or escape, but also glide onto a rooftop to gain an advantage.

Season 9 of Fortnite was launched during the early hours of Wednesday. The tweet adds that the fix will provide compensation for any challenges completed before and also a bonus. With them hovering in the airspace of Fortnite, spotting one of the locations where one of these new structures can be found is not too hard. Full Season 9 patch notes can be found here.

Other weapons have also been adjusted slightly.

You'll be able to have mix-and-match your in-game look with new backblings. You must collect these during Season 9, and you need the Battle Pass to do this. The volcano is still smoldering, the vault is still illuminated, and players are more excited than ever.

Considering online qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup are still going on, it will be interesting to see how players adapt to this new meta.

There are even more reasons to travel around in Battle Royale, too. However, some players didn't witness the event due to some technical issue.

After 70 days of challenges and battle, Season 8 of Fortnite is coming to an end.

As we saw in Season 8, Music Kits gave us all a chance to hear some new tunes while waiting for a game to pop. Completing challenges regarding the Sky Platforms is likely what is on the mind of the majority of the community, as one of the Season 9 Week 1 challenges has tasked players with visiting seven Sky Platforms locations in Fortnite, and we have them all covered for you.
