Leaked Fortnite Chapter 2 trailer shows new island and features

A Fortnite Chapter 2 update is now available to download, while a new story trailer has revealed what's in store for players in Season 1 of the revamped battle royale game. If the game is down for more than two days, it would be a massive loss of income for Epic Games' hugely popular game.

A new season means a new Battle Pass, with new cosmetic doodads to earn by playing - a few for free, and loads more if you pay.

Games like Fortnite occasionally go down for server maintenance, usually to the disappointment of users. Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch were exploding with buzz about the game, and any website that even vaguely covers video games was getting in on the action.

"My son asked me to fix @ FortniteGame, which is just a black hole now". The game plays with apocalyptic events quite often.

When the black hole saga initially took place Twitter turned into a frenzy as gamers far and wide were mysteriously told "This is the end".

These players were then sucked into a rift and the screen was replaced with a black hole in the centre.

Some people looked deep into the hole, and learned something about themselves.

Fortnite's Season 10 finale confirmed that the world does end with a bang rather than a whimper, as the entire game was swallowed up by a black hole and is totally unplayable (via Eurogamer).

At around 4am Eastern, with thousands of people around the world staring at Fortnite's swirling black hole, the game suddenly blinked to a loading screen, with a message reading "Fortnite servers are now undergoing maintenance".

We could be waiting until 6am ET on Tuesday to find out what happens next. Those transitions have been marked by changes to the island's map, but speculation has been swirling that a more substantial update might be coming - and that it could include a new setting altogether.

As you can see in the image above, someone grabbed a screenshot that teases the launch of the upcoming new Fortnite season. Each new season comes with an in-game event that was created by Epic Games, the company who makes Fortnite.
