Epic Games appears to be building towards yet another huge rocket event in Fortnite Battle Royale and it might not be long before it all kicks off in Season 10.
There were a number of brand new features added to the free-to-play title on September 11 as developers rolled out their v10.30 patch.
While many players might have been distracted with the brand new Moisty Palms Rift Zone and the return of Greasy Grove - both sparked by Rift Beacons that activated just days before - it's structural tweaks at Dusty Depot that has got many people talking.
Speculation about a brand new rocket event has emerged following the update, after scaffolding was placed at the point of interest. Now, players can use the inside of the building to maneuver themselves onto the roof as new doors have been added to the interior.
This new metal structure on top of one bunker has a huge amount of free space in the middle, where the rocket will presumably be built.
Dusty has been the building zone for Rift Beacons throughout the course of the season and this event would be just the latest impact that the factory has had on other parts of the map.
Datamines have already revealed a number of details regarding the rocket, with the first leaked image showing just the outline - posted to Reddit by PatrickDearden, and a later leak giving fans a first-look at its design via HYPEX.
You would have to cast your mind back to Fortnite Season 4 for the last time the game had a rocket ship included in the map and on that occasion, it blasted off to mark the end of the season.
Whether or not it will play out in the same way again remains to be seen. For all we know, it could take players to a whole new map! That is a bit of a long shot, though.
