The Fortnite Battle Royale map is now being drowned with the loud noise of sirens, which have begun to sound ahead of the highly anticipated ‘The End’ event and the launch of Season 11.

With Season 11 now just around the corner, things have begun to happen on the Fortnite map that are setting up for the end of Season X. 

According to an overwhelming amount of leaks and rumors, the transition between the two seasons will be marked with an in-game event called The End.

The latest clue towards this mysterious event are loud warning sirens that started blaring on October 10, three days before the new season is scheduled to go live.

These sirens are concentrated in the area surrounding Dusty Depot, and can be heard when looking directly a the massive rocket launch pad that’s being built atop one of the warehouse buildings.

What does this mean for The End and Season 11?

The emergence of these sirens is a clear indication that the rocket on top of Dusty is primed to launch soon, especially considering how similar they sound to the rocket launch that occurred back in Season 4.

While the role of the rocket in The End won’t be known until the event actually begins, it will likely have something to do with the map, since most of the leaks and season-ending hypotheses come to the general conclusion that the map will be changed from its current state.

Some theorize that the map will be overhauled, with numerous new locations added in replacing current ones. Others believe that the map will be completely destroyed, hence the name of the event, and will be replaced with a brand new one for Season 11.

Either way, the transition between the two seasons is expected to be a big one, and there is a very good chance that, come Season 11, the map will look a lot different that what everyone’s been accustomed to seeing in Fortnite.

Despite these alarms, the floating countdown at Dusty, and the multitude of leaks, The End event hasn’t actually been directly confirmed in Fortnite.

That said, Donald Mustard, the Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games, put out some cryptic tweets on October 10, which turned out to be the transcriptions for the voice recordings left by the mysterious Scientist throughout the map.

The final recording actually made reference to the event’s name: “If they are correct, it will be the end.”

And while that may not be a confirmation, it’s probably more than enough evidence that the data-miners got the name right, at the very least. 

Epic Games have confirmed that Season 11 will kick off sometime between October 13 and 14, which is when Season 10 is scheduled to wrap up.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
