There has been speculation surrounding not only the theme for Season 6 but also what the map will look like.
After the drastic changes made both in Season 4 and Season 5 of Fortnite.
Developer Epic Games will arguably have to go bigger and better than ever.
What better way to do this than to introduce a totally new map, alongside updating the original map we all know and love.
Fans of the popular battle royale title have been speculating as to whether the next map will be five times smaller.
This is due to a number of factors:
- Epic games focus on esports and build battles, primarily focusing on Tilted Towers
- Hints that the starting island could become it’s own mini battle arena for players
- Other battle royale titles have taken similar approaches when launching different maps
PUBG’s new map
PUBG’s brand spanking new smaller map Sanhok was a huge hit with players and pundits alike after it’s release last month.
The map was a lot smaller than the original Alpha PUBG map Erangel and is popular due to there being fewer people and quicker games.
How else is Season 6 going to change?
The map has had a huge overhaul with new areas to explore including Lazy Links, a wacky golf course and Paradise Palms located in a huge desert biome.
There are also a number of smaller towns and sights to see including a bunch of random dinosaurs and a racing track.
Vehicles and battle pass
An all-terrain golf buggy has also switched up conflicts alongside new rifts dotted across the map that drop you from the sky to pounce on unsuspecting enemies.
The all-new battle pass also has a vast selection of skins and mini-games for you to show-off and enjoy with your mates.
So, what does this mean for Season Six?
Well, we can expect to see some similar changes in Fortnite Season 6.
Alongside trolleys and golf carts, a new vehicle could be added that will fit the theme of the next season.
New areas will be introduced, with the older zones such as Loot Lake and Lonely Lodge being overhauled.
A whole new battle pass with unique skins and emotes will also be accessible, providing players with an objective to aim towards when playing.
Hints and clues
In the run-up to the launch of season five, Epic dropped massive hints with rifts opening up across the map dropping real-world objects into the game.
We will likely see similar events happening as Fortnite Season Six draws closer.
As the season five map is explored more players will likely find clues as to what is to come, just like with the rocket launch in season four.
