Eggs and fossils scattered around the island were already indicative, but the confirmation only came this Tuesday (30): the dinosaurs took care of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of 'Fortnite'. Raptors now join wolves, wild boar, chickens and frogs among animals that can be tamed or serve as a source of resources.
“These creatures walk in pairs, so don't be alarmed if you are facing one of them and the other appears to protect your companion”, explains the Epic Games statement about the introduction of animals in the game. “Dinosaurs are unmatched among the Island's Wild Animals and will fight against anyone and everything that crosses their path”, completes the message.
The season, which has the subtitle 'Primal', saw the island change and gain wild regions. Players can now build improvised weapons from materials collected on the map, such as bones and car parts. One place in particular, the Decrepit District, is all decorated with dinosaur fossils and serves as home to Tarana, the new character with a “Jurassic” look.
The “Battle Pass” brings new skins for Agent Jones and other beloved fan characters, as well as new guest heroes from other franchises, such as Lara Croft, from 'Tomb Raider', and Ravena, from the 'Teen Titans'. In addition, Epic Games says that at some point none other than the Brazilian player Neymar will make an appearance.

The company is investing heavily in the current season. The introductory short of the new phase was directed by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, responsible for some of the best Marvel films, such as 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' and 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The duo is still responsible for part of the plot of the season.
Fans of 'Fortnite', the filmmakers worked with the game's developers to write, storyboard and direct not only the cinematic opening, but also the creation of some of the new characters. "Crisis Zero is a turning point for what lies ahead in the island's evolving experience and Chapter 2 of the game," said Donald Mustard, Epic's creative director.
"When we were planning the story for seasons 5 and 6, we wanted to tell it in a really authentic and character-oriented way, and we knew that there was no one better to help us do this than the Russians," added the executive.
