There are also various thermal vents around the mountain and in the mouth of the volcano that send the players into the Air rises ̵
Nearby is a new lazy lagoon area with a sprawling lake of islands and an exploratory pirate ship laden with loot. To the east is Sunny Steps, an Aztec temple complex that clings to the sides of the volcano and has some claustrophobic corridors that allow one to walk around to reach treasure chambers. It is already a popular starting point for players starving with prey.
The most visible new weapon is the cannon, which can fire cannonballs and players over long distances, providing both destruction and transportation. This feature will remind people of the multiplayer online game Sea of Thieves, which allows players to shoot from cannons.

It's a pretty big update with lots of new gameplay features and capabilities and interesting elements to discover. With the growing competition from Apex Legends, which already has 25 million players, Epic Games continues to punish its suite of additions and additions.
Fortnite Battle Royale is now 18 months old – an era in the world of online multiplayer gaming. The industry will be watching closely to see if this volcano will trigger an explosion to keep the players – and especially the most prominent YouTuber and Twitch streamer – at stake.
