Fortnite Season 9 Map: NEW Tilted Towers coming soon with futuristic Battle pass theme
Later this week, we’re going to see Fortnite go offline for a few hours and come back with a shiny new theme in a lovely new Season.
Season 9 is due to go live on May 9 this week, and will see the pirate-inspired skins and map of Season 8 get replaced with something altogether more… futuristic.
Thanks to the Fortnite Season 9 teasers (we’ve had two so far), we’re expecting Epic to make this theme more focused around technological or futuristic things – a far cry from the winter, pirate, superhero and other setups we’ve seen so far.
One thing that we can count on, though, is an update to the map. Without fail, every season seems to bring something interesting to the game, and thanks to a small trail of breadcrumbs left across social media and elsewhere so far, we think we may know what we’re getting next.
We think Tilted Towers may get reborn.
Why do we think this? Well, first up, a tweet from Fortnite yesterday highlighted a featured island from Makamahon123. This Creative island uses recent assets to show off a cool, new-looking map called Modern Towers.
This uses assets that look like they could be used to rebuild Tilted in a new, more interesting way.
We’ve also seen Epic tease the letters N and E so far as part of the Season 9 teaser campaign. Will this lead to the developer spelling NEXUS or NEXT, as some have said? Or will it lead to NEO, which – as Fortnite News on Twitter asserts – could man ‘new or revived form’.
Fornite creative director lead Donald Mustard also tweeted a very cryptic statement that simply read: ‘From the ashes’. Does this point to something rising where Tilted once stood?
Is it a stretch? Maybe. But right now we don’t have much else to go on, and we imagine Epic wouldn’t melt two locations of interest without having something planned for them over the coming months.
Fans have been very vocal about the destruction of Tilted Towers – which was destroyed by the erupting volcano over the weekend.
The iconic location was the busiest area of the game, drawing the most players from the drop, right until the endgame. Epic is smarter than to remove this location without offering players something else in its stead.
The fact Tilted Towers still has its name on the map make us thing Epic has great plans for the location, and we’re going to see it rebuilt – as a bigger, better and more interesting location than before.
No doubt we’ll find out more when the Season changes over in Fortnite on Thursday, May 9.
