The Fortnite x Batman Gotham City event may have dropped a new teaser for Season 11 with the ‘Final Reckoning’ movie and posters.

Fortnite’s map as we know it has gone through many changes since the game’s release in September 2018, with the introduction of many different types of terrain such as the desert around Paradise Palms to the Pressure Plant volcano.


However, fans may be set to receive a completely new Fortnite map after a set of posters possibly teasing the Island’s destruction have been added to the game as part of the Batman collaboration event.

Epic Games“The Final Reckoning” teased at Gotham City’s movie theater in-game.

What is the Final Reckoning?

The fan-favorite Titled Town has been replaced by the Batman-inspired Gotham City which is full of familiar venues to Batman fans such as Wayne Tower and Gotham PD as part of the latest update.


Many fans believe the end of the Fortnite map has been teased at the Gotham movie theater, which is currently advertising an upcoming movie titled “The Final Reckoning.”

The future in-game movie also has many posters scattered around the venue with different characters and villainous-looking figures on many of the walls at the Movie theater.

It is suspected that each of the characters teased to make an appearance in Fortnite could be part of “The Seven,” the group which the Volta Visitor Skin is said to be a part of and that they will be the reason for the destruction of the current map.


As of now only six members out of the possible seven, including the Volta Visitor, have been revealed in-game, making it likely that more teasers could follow before the season’s end.

It seems quite likely that Epic Games are gearing up for a new map as many map changes in Season 10 paid homage to some of the battle royale’s original points of interest, such as the return of Dusty Depot.

Many also expect that the characters in the movie may be later added to the game as separate character skins for players to experience similar to the Volta Visitor.

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.
