Has Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 been disappointing?

The arrival of Fortnite Chapter 3 breathed new life into a game that, although it had not become obsolete, certainly needed a boost. This brand new era could not have come at a better time, and the surprise factor that built up to its unveiling was unparalleled.

Now that we’re about six weeks inside this bold new landscape, what’s the overall feel of Fortnite Chapter 3? Has things started a little too slowly, or is everything unraveling at the perfect pace?

Is Fortnite Chapter 3 a disappointment?

The hype surrounding the arrival of Fortnite Chapter 3 was truly incredible. Despite a series of leaks that apparently saw the schedule change dramatically compared to the launch of Chapter 2, the community talked a lot about how Epic handled the transition.

Six weeks later, despite all the amazing content and gameplay changes that have come with the new chapter, is the overall landscape moving a little too slowly? The story content came so quickly towards the end of Chapter 2 that it’s something of an adaptation of how things roll out in Season 1.

Overall, the feedback from the community remained very positive in response to most of the major changes and additions to content. In fact, the lack of history at this point may actually be more positive.

Fortnite is still the same, if not MORE fun to play

The overall feeling is that Fortnite has not been as fun to play in some time, and it is without the nuclear additions like the No-Build mode that is always requested. The winter party, which came hot so close to the release of Chapter 3, helped the hype train run on until January. It is only now, when nothing really happens, that the idea that Chapter 3 is ‘slow’ or ‘disappointing’ has been proposed.

In fact, those who have suggested that storytelling should replace everything else for the sake of continuation miss the point a bit. The beginning of Fortnite Chapter 3 was pretty loaded, especially with how the ‘The End’ event unfolded.

There is still so much to come alone this season

We know that the story of Chapter 3 will be one that unfolds nicely and slowly, because why rush when it’s the ultimate goal to keep players on the hook? Giving Epic time and confidence to push Fortnite Chapter 3 in the right direction should not be something that players need to be convinced to do.

No matter how the rest of the season unfolds, we are sure it will be something of a performance. Let’s not forget that we still have Haven Masks and The Foundation for release this season!
