More Massive Cracks Are Appearing in the Fortnite Battle Royale Sky

It’s beginning to look more and more like the Fortnite Battle Royale map is going to face major destruction as another large crack has appeared in the sky.

With Season 5 due to begin on July 12th, Epic Games is teasing the Fortnite community with mysterious cracks, portals, and rifts appearing all over the map after June 30th’s rocket launch.

It’s beginning to look ever more likely that the map will take some serious damage and change significantly as the portals are beginning to eat away at some areas of the map and the crack in the sky is growing at a rate of knots.

The first portal, or rift, was found in Lonely Lodge and it quickly ate away at the “Lonely Lodge” sign. Next came the Motel, and its sign, and now a new portal looks poised to give Tomato Town the same treatment.

Meanwhile, the crack in the sky seem to be behaving like chips in a windscreen. Some players believe that there are symbols in the cracks, while others think that the sky will eventually shatter like a huge glass dome.

The main crack is no longer alone, though, as it has now been joined another ominous looking fracture that is best viewed from the island in the middle of Loot Lake:

Fans have also noticed that the official Fortnite image on Twitch.tv has changed to one with the lightning-like cracks spidering across the front.

With Season 4 coming to a close in less than 10 days, expect the tension to keep ramping up try not to blink or you might miss another major development in the story!

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
