Fortnite’s new Travis Scott cosmetics include an Astro Jack skin that has players speculating over one key detail that you may not have noticed.

Travis Scott is gearing up for a series of virtual performances in the world of Fortnite starting April 23. Accompanying the in-game concerts are a slew of new challenges, map changes, and cosmetics. 

One cosmetic in particular, the Astro Jack skin, has players buzzing over a significant detail that can be easily overlooked if you don’t look closely.

What does the Cactus Jack skin tease?

The Astro Jack skin pays homage to both the Astroworld album and the Cactus Jack brand. “Out of this world” the flavor text reads for the astronaut-themed skin, yet which world might it be referring to?

While the visor features the Cactus Jack logo, the helmet’s reflection appears to show a familiar landscape.

Fortnite’s original map from the first 10 seasons, codenamed ‘Athena,’ appears in the visor, as though the astronaut character is straight out of that world.

There’s no telling if this is an intended teaser of what’s to come, but Fortnite fans has already begun to put pieces together for much grander storylines.

Could the skin be hinting at Fortnite’s future?

It would be quite the stretch to claim this subtle cosmetic tease is outright hinting at the return of the original Fortnite map. Though there could still be plenty worth reading into. After all, it might serve as a unique throwback to Chapter 1.

One intriguing theory alludes to both Fortnite’s old map, and the current map, all taking place “on the same planet,” according to Redditor ‘NomNomNomNation.’

With the black hole event that led to the dawn of the new map, Fortnite was shot through a black hole. It’s entirely plausible that the start of Chapter 2 led to the same planet, just in an “alternate reality.”

Could this Cactus Jack skin be from the original reality? Might it be teasing an event that leads us back to the old dimension? These are all questions we’ll just have to wait and see play out.

With concerts kicking off on April 23, perhaps the string of performances will be capped off by a world-altering event. Or the subtle throwback could be nothing more than a neat visual easter egg.

In the meantime, here are five things we do know for absolutely certain about the upcoming Travis Scott event.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
