A map that many players thought was a fan concept may have just been confirmed by the leaked Fortnite Chapter 2 trailer.
Hype for the upcoming season of Fortnite is at an all-time high following the Season X live event that saw the entire game sucked into a black hole.
When you go to start up Fortnite now, you're unable to play anything because of the black hole, but it's looking like we're close to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Fast forward a day after the event and we've got our first look at the leaked Battle Pass trailer and it shows off the next iteration of Fortnite.

Lots of water appeared in the trailer, along with boats, which has helped give this supposed leaked image of the new map a lot more credibility. Dataminers ShiinaBR and Lucas7yoshi analyzed the trailer and think the map is indeed legit.

All leaked locations

- Salty Springs
- Slurpy Swamp
- Sunny Shores

Near the end of the Battle Pass trailer, we got a look at a beachfront location, which is almost certainly Sunny Shores from this map.
Fortnite has had water on the map before, but never quite like this. The trailer showed off boats extensively and even showed off some new mechanics such as fishing and diving.
Almost every location on the map is new with the exceptions being Retail Row and Pleasant Park, who appears to have managed to survive the black hole that claimed everything else.
However, until we get official word from Epic themselves, this is to be taken with a grain of salt, especially when you consider this map shown days before The End event even took place.
If this ends up being the official map, it'll fundamentally change the way Fortnite is played and fans are no doubt excited to see how it all plays out.
There are a plethora of new mechanics to learn and become familiar with. Stay tuned for an official release of Fortnite Chapter 2, hopefully, sooner rather than later.
