Epic Games Leak
It looks as Epic Games has a significant change in store for Fortnite in the pipeline, as a recent leak has hinted toward something big happening to the Coliseum location. The game has not received any major updates over the last several weeks as a result of the holiday season, but regular tweaks to Fortnite should be commencing now we’re a week into 2021. That can mean a huge map change, this means a special event may just be in the works as Epic Games plans for the forthcoming Season six.
As for the leak, it comes the way of prominent Fortnite leaker and dataminer, “Mangge,” who just recently took to Twitter to reveal that a new variant has been added for the Coliseum in a recent update that is not currently in the game. More specifically, they discovered files and assets suggesting the Coliseum is actually intending to be filled with water.
Today, this could hint at a bigger event involving some kind of flooding, or perhaps it may be a far more isolated change. As the dataminer points out, the Romans would occasionally fill the Coliseum up with water for massive ship battles. And as you are able to see in the leaked image below, there is a ship, plus plenty of docks for players to stand
A change in Fortnite
For now, take everything here with a grain of salt. Not merely is nothing here official, but datamining leaks can be deceptive, and of course, everything is always subject to change in video game development. With Fortnite specifically, we have seen Epic Games add a lot to the game’s files that never make it into the actual game itself.
Speaking of Epic Games, at the moment of publishing, it hasn’t commented on this particular leak in any capacity, and it is very, very unlikely this will change, but in case it does, you will have the ability to read about it right here.
Fortnite is available, for free, via the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android. For more coverage on the popular and free-to-play battle royale game, click here. Please visit my house Market 4 Games for new games updates .
