A very lengthy ‘leak’ posted by an anonymous 4chan user has garnered some serious attention online, as it claims to have details of how Season 5 of Fortnite will end, and the beginning of Season 6.

Typically, 4chan ‘leaks’ are dismissed as works of pure fiction, mainly because the site is known for being home to plenty of trolls, but there are some specific details in this post which give it some credibility.

This by no means should be taken as legitimate, but it is an interesting theory or ‘leak’, and even if it is only partially accurate, it is still worth having a look into.

This image, which appears to show the mysterious purple cube exploding, is the most notable thing about the supposed leak.

Of course, even this image proves nothing and this post could be pure invention on the part of the author, if it turns out to be true, it reveals some big changes for Season 6.

The post begins with the transition scenario between Season 5 and Season 6. The Executors could not live on Earth and therefore sent the Cube to change the atmosphere. Hence the anti-gravity domes that emerge from the latter and mimic the atmosphere of their home planet.

When the Cube reaches Loot Lake, as expected by the data mining, it will absorb all the water and send energy to the domes around the runes to grow them. Season 5 would end with a dry Loot Lake and domes twice as big as they are now.

LORE

The Enforcers are the ones who sent the cube. The Enforcers cant live in Earths atmosphere so they must change it. The cube creates small domes that mimic their planets atmosphere. At loot lake the cube will absorb water and send energy to the domes, making them grow. Season 5 will end w/ loot lake drained and the domes twice as large. The trailer for season 6 will show people walking up to the cube and getting struck and bounced away. Drift walks up to the cube and when the lightning strikes him, he doesnt get knocked back (because hes human). The cube keeps striking him and the bolts get bigger. Drift becomes charged and the cube explodes

POI
 The wailing woods bunker opens up. The person inside decides to follow his dream: building a chicken restaurant. 1 of the battle pass skins is the restaurants mascot. The restaurant expands into an amusement park throughout the season, replacing wailing woods

– Other new restaurants w/ mascot skins will appear during the season. Durr burger, weary of new competition, expands

– Lonely lodge is damaged by the explosion. Its turned into a campground and tourist attraction w/ caves and a river w/ rideable canoes
– Loot lake is wiped out by the explosion and a black hole (its a portal to the dark side of the world) is left in the middle. During the season the Enforcers will build a futuristic city around this area.

CRYSTALS

I mentioned a portal to the dark side of the world. You can go to the dark world w/ the portal, or w/ the new crystals. The crystals (parts of exploded cube) are used like hop rocks. They take you to a dark version of the world for a bit. You will be invisible to other players while there, and they will be invisible to you. You can’t use weapons there.

SKIN THEMES

– Dark world versions of regular skins- Some previous skins from the store will have new challenges available that allow you to unlock a dark version of the skin
– Restaurant mascots
– Camping
– Tourist
– Futuristic

Dark World would apparently be a darker version of the map where it is impossible to see other players or to be seen by them. It would also be impossible to use weapons and skins would be changed to their “dark” versions in Season 6, achievable through challenges.

This last statement from the mysterious 4chan user directly refers to the loading screen of the week 10 that had leaked the day before the post was published

Again, all this information needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, as it could have been invented from by putting together information already officially announced with a sprinkle of imagination.

Surprisingly, no mention is made of the Volcanoes that were discovered in the game files recently, which is odd.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Fortnitemares 2020 Midas Revenge Skin,
Epic Games
Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
