Epic Games could be on the brink of doing something unprecedented in Fortnite Battle Royale for Halloween, if YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken is proven to be correct.

The popular internet personality, who many people will know for his popular Pokemon Go, Call of Duty and Fortnite video series of videos online, posted some interesting information that any battle royale fan will no doubt be interested in. 

Ali-A recently revealed a handy trick on how to count the amount of bots in Fortnite Chapter 2 matches and now it appears that he might well have uncovered a huge clue for an upcoming event. 

Epic GamesThere’s a mystery bunker here on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map.

The 25-year-old posted a video to his official YouTube channel on October 26, after noticing that a huge mysterious door had been added along with the brand new map, without any real explanation behind its existence. 

Ali-A, however, has seen something very similar to this door before and it was in Save the World mode, which is separate from Fortnite Battle Royale and has to be purchased to play. 

With Epic Games previously hinting that the game could also be free-to-play in the near future, this door could be a way of making that crossover happen – maybe even as part of this year’s Fortnitemares Halloween event.

“For a long, long time now Fortnite have said that Save the World will be going free-to-play,” he said during the video. 

Ali-A continued: “I believe the biggest reason it hasn’t happened yet is because they are still waiting to tie in the stories together so when finally the Save the World story and Battle Royale story link in, make sense, and has an actual connection in the storyline, that is when they will open it up to the masses to play for free because people will understand it a little bit better and will have a reason to jump over and play that portion of the game.” 

Epic GamesZombies were last seen in Fortnite Season 10 at Retail Row.

While this is just a theory at the time of writing and nothing has been confirmed, let alone even mentioned, by Epic Games about this potential crossover coming soon, the pieces of the puzzle are certainly there for all to see. 

Whether or not the modes will be coming together as he suggests during the video remains to be seen, but elements of the Save the World have already appeared in Battle Royale previously, as zombies have been seen to take over different locations in the past. 

It might not be the most unlikely possibility that we see something come out of this massive door at some stage in Chapter 2, Season 1. 


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
