It looks like the first official Season 5 images are beginning to be released as the Spanish community manager at Epic Games has tweeted out a teaser.

With Season 5 just around the corner for Fortnite Battle Royale, players around the world are keeping their eyes peeled for any official information from Epic Games.

They may have found just what they were looking for on July 9th when the Spanish Community Manager at Epic Games, Beñat Miranda, posted a teaser.

Captioned with what translates as “3 days for Season 5, Miranda posted an image that seems to show an animals face behind the Fortnite Season 5 wording and a large crack like those found in the sky.

Some community members have also pointed out that it looks like the artwork used for Japanese kitsune masks.

While we originally thought the imagery looked somewhat Egyptian, this description of some of the supernatural abilities of the kitsune from Japanese folklore seems to fit all too well with what has been happening in Fortnite so far:

Some tales speak of kitsune with even greater powers, able to bend time and space, drive people mad, or take fantastic shapes such as a tree of incredible height or a second moon in the sky.

A great deal of the speculation about Season has centered around the mysterious portals, or rifts, that have been appearing all over the map and either removing items or conjuring strange new ones.

One of the most popular theories is that we will see some form of time travel, and this description of the kitsune goes hand in hand with that!

The introduction of the Drum Gun, which is based off of the prohibition era Tommy Gun, was the first hint that we could be seeing some sort of time travel at the end of Season 4, and a great deal of hints have also pointed that way ever since.

Of course, this is all simple speculation at this point and nothing will be confirmed until Season 4 comes to a close and Season 5 begins.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
