How Chapter 5 Altered Fortnite

In the ever-evolving landscape of online gaming, few titles have made as profound an impact as Fortnite. Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite emerged onto the scene in 2017, quickly transforming into a cultural phenomenon that transcended the gaming world. With its unique blend of battle royale mayhem, vibrant graphics, and innovative building mechanics, Fortnite not only redefined the gaming experience but also became a global sensation, captivating millions of players across different platforms. As we take a deep dive into the background of this virtual universe, the story of Fortnite unfolds, intertwining technology, pop culture, and an intense online community.

On December 2, 2023, Epics Games hosted its biggest live event ever, the Big Bang Event. Since then, there have been plenty of new updates keeping fans on their feet; one of the biggest updates being the newest one, Chapter 5. Chapter 5 brought many new features, such as Fortnite Festival, Lego Fortnite, and Rocket Racing. There was also the arrival of new skins, emotes, and a brand-new map with tons of new lore.

Lego Fortnite was the most anticipated feature in this new update, the one players were most excited about. Nobody knew what it would be like when it was first teased, but when it arrived, everyone loved it. Lego Fortnite is exactly what it sounds like; Fortnite but in Lego form. While that’s somewhat correct, it’s way more than that. It’s an open-world/sandbox feature where you and your friends can create a world by collecting wood, picking berries, building houses, defeating enemies, and more. To make it more fun, players can play in their Fortnite skin in a Legofied version, but keep in mind that not all Fortnite skins will be Legofied, just about 1,000.

When the Fortnite Festival was first talked about amongst the community, people were comparing it to Guitar Hero and other rhythm games. That had people guessing and thinking about what Fortnite had in store. It arrived with a completely new setup, over 50 popular and original songs (you can buy from the item shop), and many different ways to play. It starts with four players, including yourself, picking 4 different songs in the queue. This is also where you pick what part you’d like to take in the band; lead guitar, bass, drums, or vocals. You can then pick your difficulty levels; easy, normal, hard, and expert. Once your team is settled on the position they’d like to play, you’re all ready and head to the stage. Jumping out of a giant rift, each player’s names are introduced as you pose with your instrument. As the music starts, depending on your position, you can emote or the notes will start rolling down your screen as it’s your job to keep up with the notes to lead your band to success. Give your team more points by using the overdrive feature, doubling the amount of points each player gets.

Lastly, Rocket Racing. It’s exactly what it sounds like; racing against players, except in Fortnite. Players get ultimate speed, intense drifting, parkour obstacles, and the mindset of who is going to win first. You can create a unique car for your racing rounds, differing in colors, styles, designs, and vehicles that you can use in Battle Royale. Rocket Racing is a good game mode to play after intense rounds of Battle Royale in a simple and fun way while also being competitive and intense.
With the current changes in Fortnite, it allow all players to have the utmost fun without the need to rage at the ones who killed you. These adventurous modes have captivated all players since bringing back the OG Fortnite, and needless to say this is the biggest update for Fortnite yet.

About the Contributor
Nicole Jacobs, Lifestyle Reporter
Nicole Jacobs is a 17-year-old lifestyle reporter here in the Owl Feed Journalism Program at Agua Fria High School! Even though this might not be something she would want to be in her future, she is aware that this is a good start for whatever she decides to do! I asked Nicole what her favorite food was, and she stated, “ I love, I love the noodles and the spiciness it has when I am eating,” Nicole said when she spoke to me about her favorite food. She also does have various other favorite foods like sushi, and she also loves to drink apple juice and chocolate milk. Nicole has always had a passion for playing video games on her PC. She has also loved playing, “I love yelling at the kids who have something to say, it just adds fuel to the fire, it makes me excited cause I know I got something in my pocket to throw back at them. It’s a wonderful feeling, "Nicole also said.  She also has two siblings. She has a 26-year-old sister, and she also has an 18 year old sister, making Nicole the youngest. Although there can be things that make her really happy, there are also things that make her really angry. What makes Nicole really angry, or annoyed is when someone is speaking but they make it aware or obvious that they are not interested in keeping the conversation going. Another thing that gets her really annoyed is when she is listening to music and someone is trying to talk to her while she is listening to music because she really does enjoy listening to music. What gets her mad the most is when someone wakes her up really early, but who wouldn't be mad when someone wakes up really early? Of course, there may be some things that you hate, but you can never go wrong with loving something too. Nicole loves animals, Nicole has one dog but cats have always been her passion. She is looking forward to getting two cats, a black cat, and an orange cat. Even though she may be a really calm person there are some things that she fears, she has a fear of being deep in the ocean. If you did not know, this is a phobia called Thalassophobia. This phobia is when you are scared of being in deep waters. But, that does not mean that's stopping Nicole from feeling motivated into doing stuff! Nicole is different from others when it comes to being motivated. Some people get motivated by hearing good advice, Nicole starts to feel motivated when she sees someone younger than her being more successful. She did ask herself “Why are they more successful if they’re younger than. me”, she said. Nicole is originally from Arizona but her parents are originally from a different state and even from a different country. Her dad is originally from California, her mom was born on a military base in England. Her sisters are also originally from Arizona just like Nicole. Nicole loves going on vacations. One of her favorite vacations was visiting Georgia. When she goes to Georgia she does hang out with her older cousins and her sister in a small town in Georgia. While they are over there she did say “We meet up with friends and mess around “ Nicole said, she also stated that they ride on golf carts. And with all this here this was all about Nicole and who she is
