Epic Games has released another teaser ahead of the release of season 5 in Fortnite Battle Royale, giving another clue as to what fans can expect in terms of theme.

It has been speculated that an historical theme of some sort will be part of season 5, with numerous historical objects being spotted appearing on the map.

The portals are also a big clue, but no one is quite certain what it all means yet as Fortnite keeps everything well under wraps.

Previous teaser images for season 5 included firstly a ‘kitsune’ mask of Japanese origin, and then an axe of some kind which many speculated was inspired by Greek or Norse mythology.

If anything, this third teaser, which includes the text “Worlds Collide” only complicates matters further, but perhaps suggests that there will be numerous historical and thematic inspirations ‘colliding’ for season 5.

This would help make sense of otherwise random seeming objects that have been appearing in game too, which include an anchor and carriage.

Season 5 is set to begin at 4am EDT (9am BST), and in addition to new skins and items, many are expecting serious map overhauls – some of which have already begun with the destruction of the Tomato Head etc.

This new image shows two portals or rifts colliding, so perhaps fans can expect another live event similar to that of the rocket launch which happened recently.

What exactly season 5 has in store for players remains shrouded in mystery, but whatever it is, it’s set to be very exciting for Fortnite fans.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
