An all-new Fortnite leak has revealed a few map changes that are coming later down the line in Chapter 2, Season 3 – with some leakers showing how the map will look when the water drops to its lowest point.

After plenty of rumors and much speculation, Fortnite fans entered Chapter 2, Season 3 to find the Splash Down theme and a water-filled map. The water, which was teased in the Domesday Device event, has engulfed some fan-favorite spots and quickly shaken up the meta just a bit. 

Though, in the new season trailer, it was revealed that Epic Games would be adding actual cars to Fortnite. As cars don’t exactly drive well on water, the battle royale island is going to need a bit more solid ground to return first.

The new Fortnite season has brought plenty of changes.

According to multiple leaks, the water that has covered the island will recede as the season continues to unfold. At some point, things will go pretty much back to normal and there will be land than water.

Reliable leaker Lucas7Yoshi uncovered what the map is going to look like when the water reaches its lowest point. Of course, there will still be plenty of water to swim, fish from, and use in some way – but the map will look a lot more like it’s previous self.

As for what new Points of Interest are going to crop up, the biggest change seems to be coming in the North West corner of the map. 

According to FortTory, this spot has been given the name of ‘The Ruins’ in the game’s files. There are references to monuments and temples, but the only real look at it that we’ve got so far is just the mass of land that it will take up.

As of writing, there’s no confirmation as to when these changes will come. Epic could always change things up too, making late changes to whats already in the files. 

We’ll just have to wait and see as to what they decide to do when it comes time to shake the map up.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
