New Fortnite leaks may have revealed the first look at some of the upcoming map changes and Chapter 2, Season 2 trailers fans have been waiting for.

Since the release of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 began, many of the popular battle royale’s players have been enjoying the new edition of the game.

As the first season is beginning to come to a close, the hype is starting to build for what Epic Games might have in store for the next stage of the Fortnite universe.

Fortnite’s second season is expected to include some new map changes.

Season One of the new chapter is set to end on February 20 and new leaks might have revealed a first look at what’s to come.

Two leaks were shared by ShiinaBR, with the first including screenshots of what appeared to be a cinematic sequence featuring the latest battle pass skins.

There was also an image leaked of the new potential map changes that might be introduced at the start of the new season.

In the leaked image of the map, it appears as if adjustments have been made to Steamy Stacks, Slurpy Swamp, and Misty Meadows, if it’s to be believed.

However, there seemed to be a mixed reaction to the leaks as many Fortnite fans still had their doubts about how accurate the leaks would be.

The leaked map could be fake – but there’s no way of telling currently.

“In my opinion, the pictures are faked, but there is a chance that they are real,” ShiinaBR expressed, after highlighting concerns over the legitimacy of the leak.

It is likely that more information about Chapter 2, Season 2 will be released closer towards the season’s end date on February 20 so fans won’t have too much longer to wait.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.
