Fortnite Season 10 is nearly upon us and we appear set for a major map change as the Loot Lake orb looks like it could explode at any moment now.

The conclusion of the Monster vs. Mech event left a lot more unanswered questions in Fortnite than it did answered ones.

Yes, the map was saved from the monster, but it still tried to rip open the Loot Lake vault to unlock the power. Now it looks like whatever power that is being held in the orb is about to be unleashed on the map.

Loot Lake has undergone major renovations over the seasons.

Map overhauls are common at the start of a new season and all signs are pointing to yet another one at the start of Season 10, or even slightly before it if this orb explodes.

Loot Lake has received a lot of changes over the course of Fortnite’s life but this upcoming one could be the most major one yet.

Right now, if you head to the orb in Loot Lake you’ll see it’s becoming increasingly unstable and looks like it could blow at any second. It’s clearly building up to some sort of event but we don’t yet know what that consists of.

There’s no telling what will happen once this happens orb does finish doing whatever it’s doing, but with Season 10 right on the horizon, we’d at the very least expect Loot Lake to undergo some changes.

When does Season 10 start?

We haven’t received an actual start date for Season 10 from Epic Games yet but many suspect it to begin shortly after the conclusion of the Fortnite World Cup Finals that take place July 26-28

The common assumption so far is August 1 but without official word, you’ll have to take that with a grain of salt.

Seasons generally last about three months so we’re definitely close to the start of a new season very shortly.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
