The continually changing Fortnite map looks to receive another update soon as a castle was spotted in the background of a new video.

Epic Games released a video showing off a new Emote, however the changes in the background of the video are grabbing all the attention.

First up, the Villain’s Lair that played a major role in the lead up to Season 5 is now missing.

The Villain’s Lair was the site of the rocket launch that ripped a hole in the sky and brought along all the Season 5 map changes.

The Viking Village, a recent edition to the Fortnite map, is also no longer visible.

The Vikings may be gone but another representation of ancient warriors could be on the way as a castle was spotted on the hills in the distance.


Reddit user lepracs spotted the castle, and SergeantDonut99 provided a closer look.

The Crazy Castle is already in the game as a spray, though a bigger role may be upcoming.

The spray appeared as a tier 2 reward for the Season 5 Battle Pass, launching speculation about when it could appear on the map.

A giant purple cube has appeared on the map and may be the catalyst for all of these map upcoming changes.

Be careful when approaching the cube as it can damage you, Ninja found out the hard way in the middle of a $500,000 tournament.

If you want to do some sleuthing yourself, the original video showing the potential changes is below.


Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
