Who needs to search for weapons in Fortnite? The video game’s latest season will let you make your own.

Season 6 of Fortnite Chapter 2, nicknamed Primal, launched on Tuesday, introducing new features such as the option to create makeshift weapons and the introduction of wild animals.

The Primal season will also add several new characters players can use, including Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft and football superstar Neymar Jr. Details on Neymar’s arrival are coming soon, said publisher Epic Games.
