The v10.0 Content Update would bring major changes to the BRUTE mechs, the biggest alterations came to the landscape of the island, with the sprawling metropolis of Neo Tilted removed thanks to another Rift in the game’s skyline.

Replacing it is Tilted Town, an old fashioned location with brand new buildings and some major changes, mixed with some nods to the classic Tilted Towers that we all know and love.

Epic GamesNeo Tilted is completely gone in the v10.0 Content Update.

Noticeable from the moment you drop in is the massive Rift above the town, which appears to have created a protective shield around the former city that players will have to walk or fly through to enter Tilted Town.

Once you’ve penetrated the bubble, your screen will take on a sepia effect to match the old fashioned feel of the new location, while your character will don a long black coat to help them blend in with their surroundings.

Epic GamesTilted Town is surrounded by a barrier.

Inside the town, gone are the massive skyscrapers that dominated the skyline, instead replaced with rickety wooden buildings. 

The massive buildings in the center have been reimagined as a hotel, which sits as the biggest building in the revamped location.

Epic GamesThe hotel is the biggest building in Tilted Town.

Beside it sits a smaller store, while across the street a large new red-wood building, which looks a lot like the barn found at Fatal Fields has been turned into a bank.

Epic GamesThe bank sits opposite of the hotel.

For fans of the original Tilted Towers, the legendary clocktower which has been a part of the point-of-interest from its inception is back, but perhaps not how many would have expected.

Unlike in previous iterations of the city, the clocktower is still under construction in Tilted Town, with scaffolding surrounding it as they continue to work on the new building. Thankfully, the clocks have been brought to the location, but you’ll have to wait and see if work is finished on the site before Tilted Town disappears again.

The underpass in the city has also been redesigned, with the road underneath turned into a river, while a wooden bridge allows players to cross from one side of Tilted Town to the other.

Epic GamesA bridge joined both sides of Tilted Town together.

Players can visit the new Tilted Town location right now, but be warned, the protective shield does force you to play the game differently than you’ve ever done so before.

That’s because anyone who enters Tilted Town won’t be able to harvest material or build, so you’ll have to rely on your gun skills to make it out of the western location alive.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
