Fortnite Season 6: The changes coming to the battle royale map next season are insane

This concept for the Season 6 map could really switch up the fight

Fortnite Season 6 is closer than ever and fans are more excited than ever thanks to the purple cube slowly moving its way across the map.

Fans and Fortnite theorists alike have been speculating as to what will happen to the map once the cube has done what it needs to.

A lot of fans believe the cube will end its journey at Loot Lake changing the (once great) looting spot into a totally new point of interest for players to land and explore.

Game concept designer ‘Sardar YT‘ has designed a concept map for Season 6 of Fortnite, with the assumption in mind that the cube stops at Loot Lake wrecking a large portion of the map.

Check it out below.

With a whole new biome and cracks spreading across the map could this be what Season 6 has in store for us?

The ‘apocalypse’ map is a brilliant concept but still leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

What is in the cracks? Will the water be shallow, or will players gain the ability to swim and fight?

Is the theme going to be ‘apocalyptic’, ‘Norse mythology’ or something else entirely?

What might the theme for Season 6 be?

Superheros and Worlds colliding are a thing of the past.

Medieval knights should also move aside, as Fortnite Season 6 is looking to be the biggest and best one yet.

As players get their hands into Fortnite Season 5, they have been speculating as to what the next season’s theme will be.

Return of the Ghoul

Many YouTubers and streamers have been saying we could see the return of the most sought-after skin in the game ‘The Skull Trooper’.

This was a Halloween exclusive skin which was integral to Fortnite Battle Royale’s initial launch and success.

A creepy ominous Halloween/horror movie theme is currently the top candidate in the community for Season 6.

Areas of the map could easily be overhauled to have a more sinister feel, with Haunted Hills already being an example of that.

Werewolf, alien, Frankenstein and more skins could also be part of the battle pass.

Atlantis rises

Due to some players looking through the code in future patch notes they uncovered that there may be more water areas coming to the Fortnite map.

This has led players to believe that the theme of season 6 will be ‘water based’ with a great flood taking over portions of the map.

This could again lead to new vehicles in the form of boats, and the opportunity for some more brilliant skins.

It has also been found that the skins from previous seasons often hint at what is coming next.

The release of the two new scuba diving skins as well as the Chomp Sr. skin could be a heavy hint as to what’s to come.

The evidence speaks for itself.
