In a post online the YouTuber revealed the Fortbyte piece can be found on an island located in the south west corner of the Battle Royale map. Once the servers were back, Epic tweeted the new season trailer. It is now known as "Pressure Plant" and plays a key role in some of the early challenges - especially visiting the new Sky Platforms. Along with the patch notes they have also released the Fortnite season 9 cinematic trailer, which you can check out below.

The map features a number of new locations in the aftermath of the volcano's eruption, including Neo Tilted, and the Mega Mall. Removed from the game, for now, are the Clingers, Buried Treasure, Pump Shotgun, Poison Dart Trap, Scoped Revolver, Suppressed Assault Rifle, Thermal Assault Rifle, and Balloons.

There are 100 Fortbytes in all, and Battle Pass owners will need to collect them throughout the season.

Completing the challenge will net you five Battle Stars towards you next Battle Pass level, and seeing as it's week one, they're all pretty easy challenges to tick off and get your Season 9 off to a good start. Priced at 950 V-Bucks, you'll immediately gain access to two new outfits, one of which can be improved via XP.

The latest update also adds a new Combat Shotgun, which is semi-automatic, can hold 10 shells at one time, fires 9 pellets per shot for 73 / 77 / 81 base damage, and has a headshot multiplier of 1.70x.

Fortnite players should expect more content, modes, weapons skins and eventually, clues to the next season.
