The game's Season 4 update is now live, with new themes and skins for players, as well as gear, magic and other loot to battle over.

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.

The comet took out an entire hanger at the former Depot and left an impact crater that's about the size of an entire map quadrant.

One of the main attractions of this new location are the Hop Rocks which give players low gravity for a small amount of time.

In the shooting game, players are dropped on an island where they fight to be the last one standing. And if you've been paying attention at all the king of the mountain is Fortnite, which skyrocketed in popularity after quickly adding the free Battle Royale mode to Epic's one-time Unreal Engine 4 showcase years in the making. The good news is that they only have to wait a few more hours to find out.

Risky Reels in Fortnite is one of the new locations added with the start of Season 4.

In Fortnite season 3 it was the John Wick style Reaper skin which proved to be a sign of a seriously skilled and experienced player.

Weeks and weeks were spent speculating as to what the foreign object was in the sky in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Even if you've never played yourself, there's every likelihood you know someone who does, so here's a rundown of everything you to need to know about the latest gaming phenomenon.

Fortnite Season 4's update has also seen other gameplay tweaks.

The most popular "hot zones" on the map include Tilted Towers, Retail Row, and Pleasant Park. When you employ the strategy landing further away from the center of the map, you have to be prepared to move. There are also new elements to existing areas, like Anarchy Acres, and comet impacts scattered across the map.

Rewards are split into tiers, with the more time played netting better rewards.

Make no mistake, there's a lot that's changed with the arrival of season 4. Both are part of the "Carbide" and "Advanced Forces" sets, suggesting that you can unlock more cosmetics that match your chosen skin.
