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 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!


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
