Fortnite‘s subsequent replace will seemingly be the beginning of a brand new period for the sport.
This data comes from an obvious leak on the Italian iOS app retailer which showcases a screenshot of Fortnite that features the phrases “Capitolo 2.” That interprets to Chapter 2, which is s fairly daring phrase to make use of in relation to a Fortnite replace.
What’s actually catching everybody’s consideration, although, is the truth that the screenshot in query showcases what seems to be a brand new Fortnite map. While Fortnite is not any stranger to dramatic map modifications, the lay of the land featured on this screenshot is so drastically completely different from what’s at the moment within the sport that it both must be a brand new map altogether or a sequence of modifications so dramatic that it would as nicely be a brand new map.
Honestly, most individuals are already assuming that that is going to be a brand new map on account of each this leak and a few fairly compelling circumstantial proof. Data miners have been uncovering an increasing number of data associated to a brand new Fortnite map, and Epic has already branded Fortnite‘s upcoming occasion (which takes place on Sunday, October 13) as “The End is Near.” Put all of it collectively, and it actually does sound just like the world of Fortnite is about to vary in a significant means.
While Apex Legends not too long ago unveiled a brand new map and PUBG has launched new maps for years, Fortnite has relied on making modifications to its present map ever for the reason that launch of the sport’s battle royale mode. It makes plenty of sense that Epic would take into account a extra substantial change to the sport at the moment, although, given the quantity of blowback the Fortnite staff has been receiving over a few of their artistic selections which have added controversial thematic alterations to the unique Fortnite zones.
We’ll let if Fortnite actually does decide to this subsequent chapter as extra official data turns into obtainable within the coming days.
