The newest dig site in Fortnite has been revealed by Epic Games and added into the game, but what secrets lay beneath this one?

Where are the Fortnite Dig Sites?

During recent Season 8 updates, dig sites, otherwise known as excavation sites have popped up across the Fortnite map. The main site came at Dusty Divot, in the heart of the map, with a number of trucks and diggers parked inside around the central lab area – with a further site appearing in the south-east part of the map.  

Further locations of the next set of dig sites, were first revealed in a leak on March 28 from popular data miner S1l0x – pointing at not only Dusty Divot receiving a major change, but other other points of interests on the Fortnite map changing too.

Where is the newest Dig Site location?

Now, the next change in the dig site chronicles has been revealed – and the leaks were right. The new site, which is located just east of Loot Lake, looks somewhat similar to the site that is situated between Fatal Field and the Desert Biome.

With the location only just being revealed, it will take some time before players have dug up what lies beneath the new site – just like they have at Dusty Divot and the site in the south-east.

What has been found at these Dig Sites?

Plenty of strange clues have already been uncovered at these sites. Fans have already found things like a strangely placed rock with a ton of health at the first site, dinosaur bones, a geyser, and a huge Pirate Anchor underneath Dusty Divot.

While no one is yet sure what this all means, it’s quite possible that Epic Games are using these sites to hint at either the game’s next event, map change or a bigger hint at Season 9.

It still remains to be seen as to what links all the strange discoveries together, but it shouldn’t be too long before Epic reveals just what they have up their sleeve and we can all stop scratching our heads and being confused about what is happening in front of us.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
