Fortnite Season 4 dropped today and many people are quick to make their reactions known. Despite the initial fear that the Marvel connections might overwhelm Fortnite Season 4, many Fortnite players say that this season is actually really fun.
Fortnite Season 4, apprehension and Marvel woes
Fortnite Season 4 was the victim of poor timing as much as anything else. Coming on the tail of a season that heavily featured Aquaman, many were worried that another season of Fortnite set around superheroes would end up getting stale or dull. And indeed, many of the issues surrounding the Marvel tie-in haven not yet been resolved.
But the day one reactions seem to suggest that many are able to see past the crossover event and enjoy the game for what it is.
Fortnite Season 4 gets good early reviews
Many prominent members of the Fortnite community have already announced that they’re enjoying season 4. Both @HYPEX and @iFireMonkey have stated their enjoyment of Fortnite Season 4. Additionally, @SypherPK, a vocal advocate for fixing many of the issues in Fortnite, called Fortnite Season 4 a win.
So far it seems most people are enjoying the game for what it is.
Fortnite enjoyment cycle?
However, one big concern regarding Fortnite Season 4 is that it seems to be following the same pattern as the previous season. Season 3 started off strong as well, with many highly skilled players announcing how pleased they were with the drastic changes and the loot pool selection.
However, as time went on, it became apparent that Fortnite failed to address many of the most pressing concerns regarding their game. When it was discovered that the glide bug was still in the game, players asked why this game altering bug that had been known about for seasons had yet to be addressed.
Another recurring issue was that of pacing. Although SypherPK seemed excited by Season 3 at first, he later became one of its most vocal critics, highlighting how poor the pacing of Fortnite Season 3 was. In one video, he mentioned how just 5 players remained by the time the first circle completed, and how it took the entire remainder of the game, most of the time spent doing nothing, to finish up.
Hopefully Fortnite Season 4 doesn’t follow in its predecessors footsteps and this season sees real change instead.Published 27 Aug 2020, 22:23 IST
