Tomorrow, March 16, there will be a special Fortnite event featuring Ninja and K-Pop band iKON as part of promoting the Samsung Galaxy S10. The trailer for this event appears to have been leaked.

Like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy skin before it, the new Galaxy S10 phones will be coming with a special pack to owners of the phone.

If you purchase the Galaxy S10 you’ll be rewarded with the ‘iKONIK’ skin along with the ‘Scenario’ emote. The event being held tomorrow will likely end up showing this skin and emote in action in case you’re still on the fence about it.

A special tournament is taking place during the event where the winner will get a chance to play Fortnite on stage with both Ninja and the members of iKON.

The event features a brand new creative map made just for the event. Doors open for the event beginning at 12 pm EST and runs until 8 EST.

A trailer for the event, which has not been confirmed as real, has leaked showing a mode called Detonation will be active during the event.

The roughly minute and a half trailer shows players on the attacking side will have to destroy two objectives while the defenders will have to prevent this from happening for 10 minutes. This is certainly a side of Fortnite we’ve never seen before.

It’s unclear whether the entire event will be played with this mode but signs are pointing to that since the map was created especially for this event.

We’ll be able to find out for certain once the event begins tomorrow. In the meantime, you can view the trailer above.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
