Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained that he “feels bad” for Fortnite players who have decided to return to the battle royale with the start of Chapter Two, Season Two, with Epic Games making it “difficult” to learn again.

The start of Fortnite Chapter 2 gave fans the longest season in the history of the battle royale – with players finding other games to play after complaints about a lack of new content.

With the start of Chapter Two, Season Two, that request for new content seemed to be fulfilled as Epic Games added a Top Secret theme to the game, as well as a whole host of new locations and NPCs. Though, as players have been returning to the battle royale to see what they’ve missed, not all of them have gotten up to speed with it just yet.

NPCs are one of the major changes to be added to Fortnite in Season 2.

One of those players is Jordan Fisher, who had been playing with Ninja on March 27, as the former Halo pro tried to show the singer the ropes of the new season. Dropping repeatedly at The Agency – which has been dubbed the new Tilted Towers – the pair were taken down by a number of players inside, leading to growing frustrations. 

As a result, Ninja explained that he feels bad for people like Fisher who have returned to the major changes after walking away from the game for some time. 

“You know what’s crazy, this is actually making me kind of feel bad for players who are trying to return, like how difficult it is to actually learn the complicated areas,” he said, noting that is duo partner is a “good gamer,” but still struggles with getting to grips with season two.

Fisher himself even admitted that Epic “make it tough for people to come back” to the game, though that wouldn’t deter him from playing a session of games alongside the Mixer streaming star.

Whether or not other Fortnite players share the same sentiments as the pair remains to be seen but, the challenges that season two has presented has prompted fans to try out alternatives like Call of Duty: Warzone – which Ninja himself has been playing.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
