Many fans might have thought Epic Games smashed it out of the park when the flooded map was revealed at the start of Fortnite Season 3, but it looks like we haven’t even seen all of the POIs just yet. Aquaman’s home might be coming soon. 

The game’s developers have had a number of big surprises up their sleeves in the past, and it looks like another ace could soon be laid on the table, with leakers uncovering what could turn out to be an Atlantis location.

To get a first look at the spot right now, data miners have been accessing footage from under the water.

Aquaman landed on the Fortnite scene at the beginning of Chapter 2, Season 3. Will he soon have his own POI?

As seen in a YouTube video from LunakisLeaks, there is a huge canyon underwater that looks perfect for building on. At the time of writing, though, players can’t exactly access the space because of how hidden it is.

With future sea levels moving up and down, though, the possibility of a huge deep secret being revealed for players to enjoy – continuing the Aquaman and water theme.

There isn’t anything to look at in terms of new buildings, roads, or features.

Instead, just a huge flattened out space, and that’s certainly peaked the attention of not just this data miner, but much of the community as well.

This isn’t the first time that the idea has been mentioned by data miners, with FortTory claiming that there’s an encrypted POI file called ‘POI_TheRuins_Falls’ just waiting to be activated.

For all we know, somewhere in this area might end up being the entry point to a place we’ve never been before.

There has been no confirmation in terms of a fresh point of interest coming out, although there often isn’t until these things are added. After all, they’re never going to spoil surprises, and we don’t seem to get patch notes anymore to check when patches go live.

Chances are, should this new Ruins Falls spot arrive in the battle royale game, we’ll find out if it suddenly appears. Until then, the rumor mill keeps on turning,

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.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
