Epic Games launched Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, titled Wrecked, on Friday. The latest season revolves around a theme similar to a mash-up of Fallout and Mad Max. Ahead of the launch, the developers described the season in a blog post that read, “A ferocious sandstorm recently moved over the Island, creating a new biome in the south dubbed the wasteland.”
