Fortnite leak hints at huge map changes coming to The Agency

A fresh Fortnite leak may have revealed a few big changes that could be in store for The Agency once the v12.60 patch finally drops.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 launched with a Top Secret theme, as the new storyline revolved around a set of agents as well as the Ghost and Shadow factions. As the season has progressed, players have been taking on these agents and swearing allegiances to the different factions. 

As the season is rapidly approaching its endpoint, fans are gearing up for the v12.60 update – as well as a possible cinematic event. Though, a new leak may have just given Fortnite fans a look at what is in store for the battle royale’s most popular location – The Agency.

The Agency has been changing slightly with recent map changes but could a major switch be in store?

The images were posted by reliable data miner iFireMonkey, who pointed out that a Shadow version of The Agency was added to the Fortnite files a few updates back. 

IFireMonkey noted that he wasn’t sure if it was a “red herring” or something that “will happen sometime during v12.60,” but the new-look version of The Agency is kitted out with links to the Shadow group.

The data miner also noted that pretty much every reference to Ghost that is in the current version of The Agency would be removed – including the statue that stands by the respawn van.

Now, of course, Epic has added things to the files in the past that they have left dormant and not used, and this version of The Agency could also fall into that category.

As iFireMonkey also points out, it could be a red herring from the developers that would throw leakers off the trial for whatever they have planned in the coming updates.

Epic did similar recently with the Travis Scott concert by keeping his name away from the items they eventually used in the event. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with this alternative version of The Agency.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
