Epic Games has officially released the trailer for the latest season of Fortnite: Chapter 5 Season 1 Underground.
The Chapter brings with it a new map to explore, along with new game mechanics and unlockable skins. These unlockables include more crossover characters such as Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin and Metal Gear‘s Solid Snake. You can get the full rundown on Epic’s official news post here, or check out the trailers below:
Chapter 5 of Fortnite Battle Royale brings a beautiful new Island, but not all is what it seems. “The Society” is pulling the strings in secret, and they’ve taken Peely in their spite. Join “The Underground” and take down The Society’s bosses — including its most notorious boss Valeria. To help you out, take the Island’s train, modify your weapons, and use a “Ballistic Shield” while shooting a pistol. Join the fight in Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground!
NEW SOCIETY, NEW SIGHTS
The page has turned to a new Chapter, so what direction to turn to? There’s the chaparral biome in the west, containing the classy Ritzy Riviera marina. Looking for something more remote? Venture to the northwest’s boreal forest where the abandoned Rebel’s Roost mansion lies.
Down south in the center of the Island is the grassland biome, whose pristine views are seen by train passengers traveling to Grand Station at Reckless Railways. Take the train to get to various parts of the Island!That’s the center and the west, now for the rest. In the east are the boreal tundra and boreal snow biomes, comprising the high alpine Hazy Hillside village and elaborate Grand Glacier Hotel.
HIGH SOCIETY: DEFEAT BOSSES FOR SOCIETY MEDALLIONS
Across the Island are five bosses: Oscar, Nisha, Montague, Valeria, and also Peter Griffin from Family Guy. Each boss will drop a Society Medallion once defeated. Keep a Medallion in your inventory for your Shield to regenerate over time! The more Society Medallions in your inventory, the more Shield that will regenerate with each tick.
You can’t get to the top without making enemies on the way — if you have a Society Medallion in your inventory, you’ll be marked on opponents’ map, and the more Medallions you have, the more precise the radius of your exact location.
