What’s New in Fortnite Battle Royale Season 6 Darkness Rises Theme
Season 6 FNBR Darkness Rises
There are so many new changes to the Fortnite Battle Royale Map for Season 6. We have included a map below of the Season 6 map. I’m sure the map will continue to change over the next 10 weeks as well. Some of the changes that are obvious are the new locations such as the Vampire Castle next to Haunted Hills, the floating island in Loot Lake and pets are now available in back packs just to name a few.
Fortnite Battle Royale Season 6 Map – Week 1
Updated Map (Battle Royale)
Islands floating, crops growing, Storm approaching. Changes have happened all over the map, glide in to find all of them now. Removal of Stone heads and Season 5 Runes locations have turned into baron rock fields.
Shadow Stones (Battle Royale)
Embrace the darkness with this new consumable that can be found around the map. Shadow Stones allow you to turn invisible and fly around like a ghost. You can get to places quickly without being seen. However, you cannot shoot while using Shadow Stones but you can creep up on your enemies quickly.
Pets / DJ Yonder / Calamity (Battle Royale)
Pets are now available in FNBR Season 6. For those Season 6 Battle Pass holders, many new skins such as the DJ Yonder and Calamity skins.
Fatal Fields location now has crops of corn that you can make your way through
Retail Row now has a Halloween store, Boo! Chests in the old Rocket Ship location, just to the East of Snobby Shores have chests on the walls that are hanging by spider webs.
Wailing Woods has been transformed into a mini underground bunker location. New houses have appeared and in these houses are underground tunnel locations.
Just in time for Halloween! Vampire Castle has appeared between Haunted Hills and Pleasant Park.
Season 6 Fortnite Battle Royale Darkness Rises Best Ever?
It’s still early in Season 6, literally only live since Thursday. I’m impressed so far, however with new releases come bugs and there have been a few.
- The loading screen to the Battle Bus turns black and then reloads
- Shadow Stones have been disabled for the past few days due to glitches
- Buggy game play and various glitches in graphics around the map
Patience will pay as I see Season 6 of Battle Royale being one of the most successful yet. I expect many more changes to the map and game play over the next 10 weeks. Some Fortnite leaks have mentioned recently such as the floating island moving across the map, more development and build out of the Vampire Castle, build out and development more in the Wailing Woods area to name a few.
