Numerous noticeable changes have been made to the map of Fortnite Battle Royale following the launch of the massive v7.10 game update.

Immediately after the v7.10 update went live, players noticed a multitude of changes and new decorations added throughout the map, as we get deeper and deeper into the holiday season.


The biggest changes came at the brand new Polar Peak, Retail Row, Lucky Landing, Tilted Towers, and The Block location, which will be filled with its first fan-made location.

Polar Peak

Loot Lake

The snow hiding the castle that sits atop Polar Peak has melted, revealing the structures lower levels and making them accessible to players for the first time.


It turns out that, beneath all that snow, there was a magnificent interior of the castle just waiting to be explored. More pictures of these new parts can be seen in our Ice King’s castle and throne room article here.

Retail Row

Loot Lake

Several changes have been made to Retail Row, most noticeable of which is the new Uncle Pete’s Pizza Pit location that has opened up across the street from the Durr Burger food truck.

It appears that the war between the two food establishments has fully carried over from Season 6 into 7, which means we can expect the storyline to progress further in the coming weeks.


Furthermore, the NOMS sign atop the well-known grocery store has been removed entirely, which could mean that the store is either changing its name and/or switching to a different type of shop.

Lucky Landing

Loot Lake

Speaking of food, a brand new established called ‘Dumpling’ has opened up in Lucky Landing as a massive new sign has appeared, featuring a large dumpling with its arms folded and a slightly evil expression on its face.

Could we see this new eatery make its way into the Durr Burger vs Pizza Pit food fight?


Tilted Towers

Loot Lake

The building that has been destroyed countless times in Tilted Towers, most recently by Kevin the Cube, is beginning to take shape once again as the construction on it has progressed considerably.

Upon closer look, one will notice that the top of the building is looking slightly like how the original building looked when Tilted Towers was first added into the game, although the lower floors are a bit different.


The Block

Loot Lake

The brand new location called The Block, which stands where the former Risky Reels was located, which will soon be filled with its first ever fan-made creation, called Grimy Greens.

More information about Grimy Greens. and when it will first appear in-game, can be found HERE.

Holiday-themed decorations

More and more holiday-themed decorations are starting to pop up throughout the Fortnite map, including Christmas trees added in various locations, holiday lights added to bushes, and large candy canes placed on the ground.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
