Is this really how Fortnite’s Season 7 will end?

Fortnite’s V7.30 Update went live on Tuesday, January 29 with a host of huge changes, but dataminers are already focused on what’s coming next in the popular battle royale title.

Chiller Grenades were introduced to 7.30 update, while a number of popular weapons were placed into the vault – including the fan-favorite Bolt Action Sniper.

While cosmetics and upcoming events like the special Super Bowl LTM have already been leaked, it appears that dataminers may have found the final in-game event of Season 7, that will likely usher in major updates to the map at the beginning of Season 7.

The Ice King has wreaked havoc on Fortnite throughout Season 7.

Epic Games often use huge in-game events to signal the end of one season and the beginning of another, using a meteor strike in Season 4 to destroy Dusty Depot, and the large iceberg that crashed into the island at the beginning of Season 7.

Now, it seems like Fortnite’s island will be rocked with earthquakes in the lead up to Season 8, likely destroying a number of popular landmarks as the developers revamp the map for the new season.

Some are already predicting that building in the centre of Tilted Towers that has been destroyed on a number of occasions will be the first to go, while others believe that the earthquakes will affect the snow covered south-western corner of the map.

Fortnite’s Season 7 is set to end on Thursday, February 28, with Season 8 scheduled to start on the same day, meaning fans still a few weeks to wait before this event kicks off.

These last few weeks do give fans an opportunity to work on completing their weekly challenges if they want to get their hands on the Snowfall skin, which has been spotted in leaked loading screens.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
