Fortnite OG is finally here. Following years of wishcasting, months of rumors, and days of teases, Fortnite’s new season is actually going back to the Chapter 1 map, with weapons, skins, and more to complete the nostalgic look. Once believed to be a pipe dream, the Fortnite fervor for Chapter 1 finally won over Epic Games.
The changes are vast, but the season, as previously, rumored, is short. At just one month long, Fortnite OG includes lots of changes that are atypical for a Fortnite season launch. For one, the shorter season means a smaller battle pass, officially called the OG Pass, which includes 50 tiers of throwback rewards, as opposed to the usual 100+.
Secondly, the update cadence is much more frequent. Rather than adding one or two new items each week or two, the battle royale island and loot will drastically change each week to reflect different eras of Chapter 1 Seasons 5 through X (10). Some items will persist for multiple updates or even the full season, while others may cycle out after just one week.
The Fortnite OG Shop will also reintroduce older and rare cosmetics like skins and gliders, as well as some reimagined items that mash-up past characters and some brand-new items, too. These shop items are said to be rare, so it may be worth checking the shop each day if you’re interested in getting some of the game’s most uncommon cosmetics.
