Battle Royale is not the only game mode affected.

In the shooting game, players are dropped on an island where they fight to be the last one standing.

Following a period of downtime in the early morning hours, Fortnite is now back up and season 4 has begun for Battle Royale players. It feels like the main fighting goes on at this area and then you fight for survival the rest of the way. And to keep its massive playerbase engaged, to keep Drake and Ninja happy, Fortnite is shaking things up in its latest update. Fans were so sure of this that some even tried to pre-emptively destroy the towers before the comet even arrived, but in actuality, a different location was the target of the flaming rock. The underground bases also tease the possibility of some ongoing story that may play out over the course of the season. If you open the map after falling from the Battle Bus, you'll immediately see a huge crater in the area Dusty Depot was. The glowing rocks, called Hop Rocks, can be consumed to gain a unique power that grants low gravity.

According to SuperData, Fortnite has taken the top spot in the global console listings in March breaking PUBG's record in terms of revenue generated and monthly active users - and it's a free-to-play game. How do you like the new changes?

Epic Games released Fortnite's Season 4 update today, adding new cosmetic items and gameplay changes to both the cooperative Save the World and 100-player Battle Royale modes. But that doesn't appear to be the case. The area is filled with small structures, trucks, and tons of loot.

Fortnite's v4.0 patch features a boatload of changes but it all starts with the comet which has been slamming into the map and altering the landscape. But you didn't need us to tell you that.

"It's something everybody has in common, everybody and their parents are playing Fortnite right now", said Riverhead High School student Ryan Keane.
