The latest patch to hit Fortnite was huge. So huge, it actually broke the entire game for almost a full 24 hours. Now that the servers are back up and running, Week 8's Challenges are underway, and the Replay feature in full force, it's time to explore the online game in closer detail than ever before.
For those unaware of what the Replay feature is that was just recently added, it's a way to save your matches, play with camera angles, capture moments of pure hilarity and epic take downs - there are no limits and the developers want to see what you can do! Suspect foul play? You can even rewatch footage to help catch cheaters! Or, in this case, catch a pretty cool shot of that mysterious comet:
The comet itself has been a source of interest to players since its discovery, and more and more evidence mounts towards Tilted Tower's destruction. A popular theory is that the comet will take out the area entirely ... and soon. Some are saying April 18th with the new update, while others are saying at the start of Season 4. With the new mode coming up specifically about the comet called 'Impact', those speculations suddenly have a lot more validity.
