Fortnite leaker claims to reveal Chapter 2 map locations

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at the possible new map names for ‘Fortnite Chapter 2’ as fans gear up for the upcoming ‘The End’ in-game event. 

The Fortnite community was abuzz with theories and speculation after the Italian Apple iOS store seemingly leaked ‘Fortnite Chapter 2’ on October 11.

A quick video, which fell under the official Fortnite app, seemed to confirm that there will be a major game change coming following the end of Season X. While the listing has since disappeared, Fortnite data miners have been digging through their old findings to give out possible hints as to what might be around the corner in the new season – including a new map.

The Fortnite map as we know it looks set to change.

The possibility of a new map stems back through Season 10, when a number of Fortnite leakers uncovered a brand new round of named locations following the v10.30 patch. The new round of locations seemed to fit the Rift Zone concept from Season X, but some fans had different ideas. 

Popular data miner Lucas7Yoshi, eventually got his hands on the full list of 13 points of interest tags, which seemed to point at a huge overhaul rather than the gradual changes that came throughout the Rift Zone areas. These locations were:

  • Beachy Blufs
  • Camp Cod
  • Creative Island
  • Dirty Docks
  • Frenzy Farm
  • Holly Hedges
  • Lazy Lake
  • Mountain Meadow
  • Power Plant
  • Slurpy Swamp
  • Sunny Shores
  • Weeping Woods
  • Mountain Meadow

Since the Fortnite Chapter 2 leak, which gave more credence to the theory of a completely new map, fans have been speculating as to whether or not these locations will replace the current fan-favorite spots. 

Lucas7Yoshi upped the ante on that, by responding to his original tweet and saying: “I’d say there’s an 80% chance these are the POI’s of Season 11/Chapter 2.”

Now, while the leaker has been very reliable in the past, there has been no confirmation from Epic Games that a new map is coming following the Dusty Depot rocket event on Sunday, October 13, let alone these specific named locations. 

The developers, and subsequent iOS leak, have hinted at a major change though, with their initial new season tease and calling the event ‘The End’. However, we’ll just have to wait and see what they have in store for us when they make an official announcement.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
