Fortnite season 10 map changes

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 10 has arrived, bringing with it a number of time travel-related hijinks. As noted in the Overview Trailer, "the world is destabilizing," with the Zero Point explosion wreaking havoc on space-time. "The world you play today may not be the world you play tomorrow."

While most areas on the map remain unaffected, Dusty Depot has returned, boasting the same collection of warehouses seen in Season 3. The meteor that destroyed the location appears frozen in mid-air, seconds before impact. This glimpse into the past is the first of many Rift Zones that will pop up throughout the season. Altered by the Zero Point explosion, these areas now exhibit special properties.

"The Zero Point Explosion has made the island volatile," teases the version 10.0 patch notes. "Locations once thought to be lost are beginning to appear, but they aren't the same as they once were... Drop in and explore to discover what mysterious gameplay changes they have in store."

Players can land on the frozen meteor which boasts a few chests. You can also venture inside for a look at the Visitor's pod. Once you've finished your exploration, you can leap off the meteor to gain some bounce juice, ensuring you won't take any damage when you land. While you can reach the meteor using building materials, it's more cost effective to treat it as your landing spot.

Head over to Loot Lake to check out the cause of Fortnite's sci-fi makeover. The ongoing explosion of the orb there has created a frozen time bubble around it, which functions as an anti-gravity zone. Another notable change pertains to the massive monster skeleton with the sword pierced through it which is now leaking a strange pink-purple liquid in a spiral pattern. Though the implications remain unclear, it's possible the creature may return to life as part of the time-alteration theme.

Based on the trailer and patch notes, you can expect the map to continue changing as Fortnite's tenth season progresses.
