Shroud explains why Fortnite Battle Royale has "spoiled" every other game

Before the update, Fortnite players noticed that additional V-bucks appeared on their accounts, but some skins disappeared.

A lot has changed today with the release of update v9.00 for Fortnite, which ushered in Season 9 of the popular battle royale game.

The volcanic eruption from the end of Season 8 created a few changes to the map. Let's see what's new in the Fortnite's Season 9!

The volcano that made an appearance earlier has now erupted, and completely changed the layout of the island.

Usually, we see these bonus skins granted to players at about Week 7 or Week 8 of the Season - though of course, that's all liable to change this time around.

The developer has also done some more changes related to game-play and improvement.

You can read everything we know about these mysterious new tasks below - and if you commit to finishing them throughout the Season, you may just bag yourself a new skin.

Kevin Durant to miss remainder of Rockets series with mild calf strain
Should the Warriors advance, that same timetable would see him return right around Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Kerr said the coaching staff would use time on the flight to Texas on Thursday to reconfigure the rotation without Durant.

This would be surprising given that new Fortnite seasons ever since Fortnite season 5 have begun on a Thursday.

The new Slip Streams - which work a bit like Volcano Vents, or the tubes in Futurama - running around the outside of the area add a new dimension to proceedings, not only allow you to get around quickly or escape, but also glide onto a rooftop to gain an advantage.

For creative mode players, there are new prefabs to match the new in-game locations, as well as the option to manage health, damage, and score for NPC enemies in custom game modes. 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.

As season 9 marches on, we expect Fortnite will repeat the past pattern of odd weeks having a secret battle star and even weeks have a secret banner. The skin will be available as part of the Season 9 battle bundle, which means you'll unlock it before tier 25 in the new pass.

Fornite Season 9 is finally here bringing a new set of challenges. These collectible computer chips are hidden across the island with a new one unlocked each day of the season.

While introducing the new Season, Fortnite has released an official tweet to explore the new maps and locations within the game.
