The creators of "Fortnite: Battle Royale" are still changing the map almost every day, and players are loving it.
It all started in April, when a meteor slowly made its way towards a cataclysmic collision with the game's iconic island battlefield. Every day, the meteor got a little closer.
It all ended recently with a dramatic meteor shower that left craters all over the map and levelled the Dusty Depot area. The impact marked the beginning of Season 4, the current phase of the game. Every new season brings new rewards to unlock, new weapons, and new challenges.
The changes after the meteor impact was so huge that most players assumed that Epic Games, the creators of "Fortnite," were done messing with the map.
Not so: Epic Games has not stopped adding new easter eggs and places to explore — many of them themed around superheroes, the theme of the game's current season. And Fortnite fans are digging deep, trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
Here are a few of the newest developments to the "Fortnite" map since the meteor hit:
So far, no one has been able to open the hatch and see what's inside, including an intrepid Reddit user who dug into the game's coding to see what hints they may contain— but was ultimately unsuccessful.
The sky-blue theme and mysterious, yet grand, symbol mounted on the wall make many players feel like this lair belongs to a superhero. This one in particular is located underneath a mansion, giving some Batman vibes. Reporters at Kotaku provided detailed descriptions of each of the lairs discovered so far, and where to find them.
The dark purple motif gives this lair an evil-genius-vibe. If "Fortnite" players thought the meteor was catastrophic, they definitely won't want to be around when this bad boy goes off.
If you're wondering: Yes, I did get sniped from the mountain behind me immediately after taking this screenshot.
From an aerial view, you can see the new tenting and other structures that have been added to the lab.
Loot Lake, a Fortnite fan blog, posted these before-and-after shots of the crater to Twitter.
A closer look at the holes reveals some mechanical parts are starting to stick out, and rumours have already begun to swirl about what the excavators might uncover.
