A mysterious siren sound has been heard coming from the 'Evil Lair' near Snobby Shores in Fortnite Battle Royale, leading players to speculate about the expected missile launch.
The v.4.5.0 patch was released on June 27th for Fortnite just as players have been trying to solve the numerous riddles and mysterious countdowns, which is believed to be leading to a missile launch.
The mysterious siren sound is undoubtedly linked to whatever developers Epic Games have up their sleeves as they prepare for the end of season four, leading into season five.
With the start date for season five released along with the most recent update, it looks as though Epic is now getting the ball rolling on whatever it is they have planned.
A number of players reported hearing the siren, posting clips to social media, although it was initially unclear if the reports were fake or just being misheard.
Now though some high profile Fortnite players, including OpTic Gaming's Jack "CouRage" Dunlop, are posting clips of the sound.
