Epic Games is setting Fortnite up for another massive in-game event as the Doomsday clock ticks away. New map changes have been uncovered and we may now know the final location of the ominous Doomsday Device.

As Season 2 comes to a close, it looks like things will wrap up with another big bang. Perhaps not to the scale of The End event, but an enormous Doomsday Device could be set to change the map in a big way nonetheless.

For weeks on end the secret device has been under construction in Midas’ room. But it might be emerging any day now, after new map changes were spotted.

The Doomsday Device has been evolving all throughout the season.

New map changes spotted underneath The Agency

Following Fortnite’s 12.60 update, brand new terrain has been discovered underneath The Agency. These new additions line up perfectly underneath the fountain out front of the Point of Interest (POI).

Additionally, bubbles have been spotted underneath the water fountain pool, and new black space has been added to the hatches. All of these secret changes are clearly preparing the map for what’s coming next.

What could these new Fortnite changes mean?

While nothing is set in stone for the upcoming Doomsday event, the Ghost and Shadow factions have been at war since the beginning of the season. It seems as though this hostility could reach a breaking point as the Doomsday Device soon relocates underneath the Agency.

The big space that was just discovered could simply be awaiting the arrival of the world-changing contraption. “ I think it’s possible that the middle fountain/pool is going to open up to reveal the Doomsday Device underneath,” one avid Fortnite player suggested.

There’s no telling exactly how it gets to the new location. However, the new hatches and the new bubbles, could signify all of the water being drained around The Agency. Making way for the finalized version as the timer nears its conclusion.

It’s only a matter of time before the seasonal transition is upon us. Keep your eyes peeled as the slightest changes in Fortnite could be major hints at what comes next.

The Doomsday event is set to kick into gear on May 30 at 20:05 CEST, just days before Season 3 drops on June 4.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
