Fortnite Chapter 2 is here: check out its cinematic trailer, plus new features

A whole new map is waiting for you.

Fortnite is officially back after a black hole capped off Season 10 as it destroyed the original map on Sunday, October 13.

Epic Games released a cinematic trailer showing what's in store for Chapter 2 including a new map and cool new in-game features.

Fortnite Chapter 2 marks the beginning of a new era for Fortnite players as it comes with a brand new Battle Royale map.

Among the many changes, the Block is no longer present on the Battle Royale island and is replaced by a Featured Hub, which will house all saved creations and featured community games.

Epic Games it even hired a group of community creators and invited them over to the Epic Games headquarters to build the first few Featured Hubs. Players can now start submitting their own Hub suggestions for a chance to be seen and played by everyone.

An individual Hub is fully customizable, letting players change the time of day, camera filter, light brightness, light color, fog thickness, fog color and gravity.

Over the coming weeks following the rollout of Chapter 2, Epic Games will release new features. Here's a timeline of what to expect:

Week of October 15:

> New Costumed Soldier

> Plague Doctor Igor Returns!

> AFK / Leeching Improvements!

> Wild West Llama

> Revamped and available for a limited time! Cost 500 event tickets.

Week of October 22:
