“Fortnite” is headed for the desert. In its newest saga, out Friday, players can enter the unforgiving wasteland in a high-octane chapter called Wrecked.

A wicked sandstorm swept the island at the end of the last chapter, and with it came a crew of fearsome foes, the Wasteland Warriors.

Three key places of interest have been added to the map, each home to a powerful boss (with even more powerful vehicles and weapons). Redline Rig is a Nitro refinery run by The Machinist, the Wasteland Warriors’ master mechanic. Ringmaster Scarr holds court at the Nitrodrome, where he’s the master of ceremonies at a circus of car spectacle. Brutal Beachhead is the base of operations for the Wasteland Warriors, where players can find their master muscle Megalo Don.

Eliminating a Wasteland Warrior allows users to gain their modded car with infinite nitro, a medallion and a mythic weapon (The Machinist’s combat assault rifle,Ringmaster’s boom bolt orMegalo Don’s nitro fists -


Vehicle mods also return this season, allowing players to trick their rides with machine gun turrets, grenade launcher turrets, spiked bumpers, cow catchers, bulletproof tires and chonker off-road tires.

The world of “Fallout” also comes to “Fortnite” for the first time: users can unlock the iconic T-60 Battle Armor outfit in the Battle Pass, or slurp down a refreshing Nuka-Cola to restore health and shield over time. That’s not the only big collaboration coming to the Battle Pass — a wasteland version of X-Men’s Magneto also hits the game this season.

The “Fortnite” Wrecked season is playable until Aug. 16 at 2 a.m. ET.
