Data miners have found several leaks in the game files that point to a long list of new POIs. Could we be getting a new Fortnite map?
Fortnite Season 10 has only a few weeks left and a lot of players are looking ahead to Season 11. Most are hoping that Season 11 will relieve us of this mech experiment, but there's always the sinking feeling that something worse might be on the horizon.
Nevertheless, several Fortnite data miners have found game files that point to a long list of new POIs coming to Fortnite.
Since the season is nearly over, we will probably be getting these for Season 11. With so many listed, though, could it point to an entirely new map?
A New Fortnite Map
What confuses me is these Leaked POIs names..— HYPEX - Fortnite Leaks & News (@HYPEX) September 11, 2019
is the whole map gonna change in this event ? or are they for season 11 ???
Epic usually changes three to five locations per season of Fortnite. Some seasons have more changes than others, but we don't usually see 10+ locations added to the existing map.
If these game files are to be believed, we're either getting a complete rework of the existing map or an entirely new one. There's also a chance that Epic is "baiting us" as @Lucas7Yoshi put it.
A new Fortnite map would be a welcome addition to the game. Other battle royale games have offered a variety of maps, but Fortnite has tried to keep their single map fresh for players.
It's also possible that Epic is considering adding a static "competitive" map for Arena and tournament play. This is unlikely, though, as Epic has made it clear they want to keep public and competitive Fortnite the same.
What do you think these POIs mean? Are you excited about the possibility of a new Fortnite map? Let us know on Twitter @FortniteTracker.
