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,


Fortnite Crew explained: Battle Pass skin packs, V-Bucks, price & more

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.
