Creative director working on Fortnite at Epic Games, Donald Mustard, may have hinted towards the next major map changes in the Battle Royale mode.

The map has already undergone plenty of changes since the game’s release in late 2017, with multiple in-game events almost making the current iteration unrecognizable to early fans of Fortnite.

Mustard, who has been known for hinting towards in-game events and even map changes in the past, may have just revealed the next changes that will be made and potentially the next in-game event location.

Donald often uses his Twitter profile’s location section to drop fans some cryptic hints about what changes they will see next, and has changed over the past week from potential clues such as “Preparing” and “Planning” to now, where it is currently set as “Pressure Plant.”

Many fans initially believed that the Pressure Plant location would play a role in the “Cattus event,” which included the monster which was released from beneath Polar Peak, although it appears as if the Volcano will be next in line for some changes.

Fortnite leaks page, FortTory, also shared an image which had many players speculating that Donald’s clues may be accurate after all.

The image was of one of the locked Fortbyte collectibles which was located within Pressure Plant and that the Fortbyte was only “Accessible with Bot Spray inside a Robot Factory.”

FortTory, along with many fans are now beginning to speculate that Pressure plant will slowly transform into a robot factory over the coming days.

Expecting that it will be used to create robots to defeat the Cattus monster which can currently be found circling the ocean of the Fortnite Battle Royale map.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
