Fortnite Battle Royale could very well make the transition from the current map to playing in space in an upcoming season. 

The Fortnite map has expanded, hit by asteroids and been crashed into by a huge iceberg since the game was first released in July, 2017, as Epic Games continues to reinvent people’s experience on Battle Royale.

Now, with everything in place for the developer to move our battles from the land to the air, it’s just down to whether or not they would like to pull the trigger.

After all, many people would see this as a huge risk for the developer. Call of Duty moved away from their core gameplay a few years back with the introduction of exosuits and their titles have been rather polarizing since that time.

Fortnite is a very different proposition, though. Its general audience – which obviously excludes those involved with competitive play – enjoy that the developer is always on the front foot and trying to surprise them. 

In fact, the introduction of Creative mode at the beginning of Season 7 encouraged people to push boundaries, take their combat to places it’s never been before and judging by the creation below, things could be very interesting if they took us off land. 

The creation, which was put together by DFault Skin and posted to their YouTube channel, has already grabbed the attention of several Epic Games employees who were left stunned by its innovative design.

“The area is 50 x 50 blocks big and I think I worked a whole day to only complete the black canvas,” its creator revealed, after being congratulated by Epic artist Riot001 on the Fortnite Creative subreddit. 

It only took DFault skin a week to produce something like this on their own. The ‘INT. SNIPESTATION’ structure has since been shared by Epic Games’ Nick Chester on Twitter, where he said it’s like “nothing we have in the game whatsoever.”

With the green light from many Epic employees already flashing loud and clear, the question is whether or not we could see something like this in a future season.

Many members of the game’s online community have had their own concepts and ideas tweaked and added to the game in the past – perhaps not after the same level of adulation that this space station has received – but you never really know what’s around the corner in Fortnite. 

The tools to take Battle Royale into space are already in the game, that much is clear. All we need now is a rocket to bring the players into the server, a few unique locations and ding, ding, ding… We have a match.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
