Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 has arrived and update 19.01 is expected to arrive in the coming weeks along with it.
Epic Games brought Chapter 2 to a close in spectacular style and provided the gaming community with an entirely new map in the process.
Along with this, The Rock made a hugely surprising appearance which sent Fortnite fans wild as there was no indication beforehand that the former WWE superstar and actor was going to feature.
Dwayne Johnson was one of a number of new introductions made in Chapter 3 Season 1, even new gameplay additions which allowed players to slide down hills, making it easier to escape from enemies or using it as an attacking strategy.
