This Fortnite theory has us returning to the old map in Season 5.

We’re into the back half of Season 4, which means that it’s time to speculate as to how the season will end and how the next season will begin. Galactus is getting closer to the Fortnite island with each passing day, and we can only guess as to what will happen when he finally arrives.
Several Fortnite theorists have presented the idea that Season 4 may usher us back to the old Fortnite map in one way or another – whether Galactus succeeds in his effort to destroy the Chapter 2 map or not.
One reason for this is the timing. Yes, we have only gone through four seasons of Fortnite, but those four seasons have lasted for over a year. We’ve been on this Chapter 2 map for a while, so it would make a decent amount of sense to send us back to the old one – at least, for a season or two.
Reddit user, u/SvenWillNeverDie420, took things a bit further, however – drawing from some in-game clues. A closer look at Tony Stark’s Battle Bus schematic shows something that looks an awful lot like the Black Hole that sent us to the new map in the first place.
What if this Black Hole was actually a wormhole? What if this is the key to the connection between the two maps – waiting to be discovered by one of the smartest men in any universe: Tony Stark?
This theory is further amplified by the meaning of the word “nexus,” along with Donald Mustards preseason tweet, telling fans that, “It’s ALL connected.” The Nexus sphere appears to exist on both Fortnite maps. This is, after all, why Galactus is coming in the first place.

As you can see from the graphic, above, SvenWillNeverDie420 took this all to mean that there may be two playable maps next season. We think that it’s more likely that players will be sent back to the Chapter 1 map, exclusively – possibly on the back of Tony Stark’s new Battle Bus.
Of course, this is only a theory and we won’t know anything until the season finally ends. One thing’s for sure: Epic are setting us up to close the season with a massive event that could change how we look at Fortnite, forever.
A new Fortnite leak suggests that Midas and his Henchmen could be returning as undead NPCs during this year’s Fortnitemares event.

Although we haven’t seen him in the game for months, Midas might be the most important character in all of Chapter 2. Like The Visitor from Chapter 1, his actions created ripples that we’re still experiencing to this day.
One of the most interesting Fortnite theories even positions Midas as one of the only self-aware AI programs within Battle Royale. If this is true, then it makes his death by shark attack at the beginning of Season 3 that much more tragic.
Of course, Midas and his legend continue to live on in the Battle Royale universe. This season, Epic introduced the rare Midas Flopper, which turns your entire inventory gold once caught and consumed.
It’s clear that we haven’t seen the last of Midas. In fact, Epic even announced that he would be coming back as a skin in their Last Laugh bundle later this year. Judging by his new outfit, it looks like Midas may have gotten his hands on one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits.
Based on a recent leak, however, it would appear as though Midas will be coming back to Fortnite sooner than we originally thought. According to data miners Hypex and Intercelluar, there are unused NPCs in the Fortnite game files. One of them is Midas, himself.
As Hypex acknowledges, this is probably for the upcoming Forntitemares event. Midas will, reportedly, be accompanied by Ghostly Ghost Henchmen, carrying ARs, Pump Shotguns, SMGs, and Pumpkin Launchers. Midas, for his part, will have 100 HP and 350 Shields. He’s carrying a Gold Scar in the game files, which could change but will likely replace his patented Mythic Drum Gun.
This is all of the information we have right now, but we can speculate a bit based on what we know. We’re guessing that Midas and his Ghostly Ghost Henchmen will be haunting The Authority – build where The Agency once stood. They may even close the vault and drop a keycard for players to use.
All signs point to Midas coming back for a limited time, but this doesn’t mean he’ll be dead forever. We expect Midas to continue to play a massive role in the Chapter 2 storyline – potentially starting with his rebirth during Fortnitemares 2020.

To celebrate three years since Fortnite Battle Royale was released, back on September 26 2017, Epic Games have started the Birthday Bash event, with new challenges to complete.
In addition to the challenges, there are rewards, some festive changes to the map, the battle bus, and birthday presents dotted around the map.
Epic’s announcement says: “During the celebration, you’ll notice some festive changes around the Island. The Battle Bus is sporting a fresh new paint job to mark the occasion, and after dropping in, find yourself a Birthday Present and see what’s inside.”
Birthday Bash Challenges
These challenges will be available from September 26 to October 1, but thankfully most are straightforward.

The one challenge that might cause you some trouble though, is dancing in front of different birthday cakes.
