Fortnite Season 4 Patch Notes, Vaults, Unvaults, and More

Fortnite Season 4 is live, and we’ll finally take a look at all of the MCU characters that have arrived at the Fortnite island. However, all of them with a purpose dedicated to an upcoming fight against a new villain, Galactus. Probably the name that will twist the story to further reaches.

Fortnite Season 4, just like any other previous patch, doesn’t include official patch notes, but instead, all we can do is follow Fortnite’s official Trello page and try to determine what exactly has been dealt with.

Fortnite Island and POIs

First of all, let’s start with the Fortnite island itself. It has new locations that somewhat differ from the previous seasons. Some of them have been edited to represent a better look and comply with the Marvel theme. We’ll make sure you can compare the S3 and S4 island by yourself so that we will do that in another article. For now, let’s take a look at what more has been added to Fortnite.

Data Miners Discoveries

Firemonkey has found new floppers that will help the players jump in a different realm and try to have a whole different approach to the game. The fresh Thermal fish is probably one of the best.

Furthermore, Hypex has discovered all of cosmetics being added with Season 4. He has also found that a new MIDAS flopper has been added to the game, which turns the whole player inventory into legendary.
