Epic Games have rolled out another update in Fortnite Battle Royale, patch v14.50, and it’s jam packed with new content following the Halloween Fortnitemares event. So, let’s take a look some of the new map changes. 

The game’s community should be well used to the regular updates by now, after all, it’s one of the biggest reasons the title ever reached mainstream popularity to begin with. Not many battle royale titles change as often as Fortnite does over time.

Map changes is a huge part of that. New POIs and features dotted around the Fortnite island often feature in the refreshes, with this time being no different.

So, let’s take a look at everything that’s changed.

Here’s how the Fortnite map looks after patch v14.50.

At first glance, you can see that much of the themed Halloween areas have now been removed from the game, so it would be a shock to see nothing replace those.

Galactus has moved

Now, in one of the more interesting changes – and this will be more important as the season goes on – Galactus has now moved right above the Ruins point of interest. This one was found by _fevers_ on Twitter.

In the Fortnitemares event, Midas very much took over this location and it looks like another dark force will soon do the same. With it being in the middle of the map, it would be just fitting for the Marvel villain to start building a base there.

Recently, we have seen Galactus very much in the distance high in the sky, but soon it looks like we’ll be seeing it land.

The same leaker also found evidence of a “winter village” mentioned in the game files, which suggests we may see a new POI spawn into the game just in time for the Holidays.

In terms of confirmed Fortnite map changes for this patch, we’ll continue to update this page with more info as and when it’s made available.

Huge Fortnite Season 5 leaks have revealed the next major update will be a crossover with Star Wars and The Mandalorian, featuring Baby Yoda. 

The update is expected to land at the end of November, with Epic Games continuing their relationship with Disney. Previous seasons have been all about Marvel, and following on from the success of The Mandalorian Season 2, it looks like the game is set to strike while the iron is hot on the hype.

On November 24, within the week the patch is expected to roll out, leakers ShiinaBR and others are reporting the crossover is imminent.

First of all, the dataminer tweeted: “So the next Battle Pass is Star Wars themed?? Both the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will be a part of it!”

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass leaked: Star Wars & Mandalorian

This very quickly caught the attention of fans, before later posting a leaked image of the Battle Pass advertising.

As seen below, there is an image of Fortnite skins – spearheaded by the Mandalorian – and to his side you can see little Baby Yoda, which will presumably be a Back Bling in the next major update.

Not only that, but one leaker has suggested there will also be a crew monthly subscription as part of Season 5. Based on the leaked image, it looks as if V-Bucks and the Battle Pass will be integrated into that, though we await official confirmation on that front.
