With the date and time for the upcoming ‘The End’ event to close out Fortnite Season 10 now confirmed, an interesting theory about how it will all go down has surfaced.
Much of the leaks and speculation suggests that a brand new map could finally be on the way to battle royale. However, many players remain skeptical as Epic have previously stated they would rather simply continue to update the current map instead.
Leakers have found plenty of game files that suggest a big change is on the way though, and even if it isn’t a brand new map, a major overhaul to the current one is at least expected.
One reputable leaker, FortTory, has come up with their own theory of what all the clues mean, and what it entails for the event on October 13.
One of the main pieces of evidence is the loading screen which shows characters waving goodbye to the battle bus as it flys off into the sunset.
FortTory believes that this image ties in directly to what will happen during the season-ending event, explaining:
“At the end, the bus driver will go searching for a new map and the Fortnite servers will shut down, because… who will bring us to the island? In that time, the downtime for Season 11 begins.”
Of course, this is just a theory, but it does lineup with other hints about the event.
Due to the time of the event, it appears that Season 11 will begin immediately after the downtime has ended, as hinted at by HYPEX.
My bad on the last tweet, but hear me out now.. the Challenges end at 2PM ET which is the same time as the event maybe after it by a little.. and assuming that the season ends with the challenges like every other season.. MAYBE we will get the season right after the event.?? pic.twitter.com/Y1Cedc6Z9O— HYPEX – Fortnite Leaks & News (@HYPEX) October 5, 2019
The event countdown has now started, and it’s visible in-game, floating above Dusty Depot.
It has been confirmed for 2pm EST on Sunday, October 13, at which time we will know for sure if this theory is proven correct.
Fortnite celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community with Rainbow Royale event
The Rainbow Royale event is here to represent and support the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community. Celebrate with free gear and new music.
Epic Games has announced the Rainbow Royale, an in-game event meant to celebrate the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite wants players to know that everyone is welcome aboard the Battle Bus, and as such, it is throwing an in-game celebration for a portion of its community. The event is called Rainbow Royale, and Epic Games invites everyone to see what’s happening in-game and beyond during this celebration.
To start, Epic Games is giving away free cosmetic items that represent the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community. As well, various LGBTQIA+ musical artists are featured on the in-game radio when driving vehicles. There are also new Creative Mode items that add a splash of color to any player’s build.
Free Cosmetic Items
For the next week, Fortnite’s Item Shop will have six free items that players can claim and gift to friends. These Rainbow Royale cosmetics can be used to support diversity as well as battle in style. Players will have to manually purchase the items, but they are all listed at a price of 0 V-Bucks.
The free Rainbow Royale cosmetics include the Take A ‘Bow emote, Wild Rainbow Wrap, and four sprays. The sprays are colored to represent a wider spectrum of the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite Rainbow Royale Radio changes
Last month, Rocket League added several free tracks to the game through the Love ISLV playlist. Now, these songs have made their way into Fortnite via the game’s own radio stations. Eight different songs from LGBTQIA+ artists can be heard across three different radio stations. Here are the tracks and their respective station:
- Big Freedia – Platinum
- Lil Nas X – Montero
- King Princess – Pain
- Troye Sivan – STUD
- Ben Platt – Imagine
- Daya – Bad Girl
- Hayley Kiyoko – Found My Friends
- Kim Petras – Malibu
Creative rainbow flag
Lastly, Fortnite has added a Rainbow Flag prop to the Creative Mode building assets. This ensures that no matter how you decide to play, you can support the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite Taco store opening in Los Angeles for a limited time
Epic Games is opening an IRL Fortnite taco store in Los Angeles for a limited time in partnership with LeBron James.
A Fortnite taco store is opening in Los Angeles, California for a limited time starting on July 20.
Taking a page out of the Mr. Beast playbook, it seems that Epic Games will be opening its own restaurant. However, it won’t be a lasting part of their brand. Instead, this Fortnite taco store will only be around for a few days before it’s gone forever.
This isn’t the first time that Epic Games has brought its massively popular Battle Royale into the real world. Close to the start of Chapter 1 Season 5, iconic symbols from the game started appearing in the real world. And a week before Chapter 2 Season 7, crop circles and billboards advertised the alien-themed season.
When and where to get Fortnite tacos
LA Eater reported that LeBron James would be hosting a pop-up taco store in partnership with Fortnite. The restaurant would be called El Rey’s Taco Tuesday and will be open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 20. It will also be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 21, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 22.
Each day, the Fortnite taco store will move to a different location in Los Angeles. On Tuesday it will be at 8175 Melrose Avenue. On Wednesday it will be in West Hollywood. And on Thursday, the address is listed as 90046.
LA Eater also reports that the event (including food) will be free for all who attend. The pop-up stores will also feature items, decor, and food inspired by Fortnite. Promotional material and footage of one of the restaurants were found online today and can be seen below.
This type of advertisement isn’t something Fortnite has ever done before. Sure, Epic Games has hosted IRL puzzles and has posted real people in the middle of the desert to guard a giant burger statue. But it’s never opened a physical establishment and invited the world to lunch.
Fans are already speculating that attendees will receive codes for free in-game goodies, while others believe that LeBron James will be in attendance. We don’t know for sure what will come of this event, but the grand opening of El Rey’s Taco Tuesday is only a day away.

Fortnite’s annual Summer celebration is back, and it’s offering a ton of free rewards. Here are all of the Fortnite Cosmic Summer challenges and rewards.
The Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration was advertised as a welcoming party for the aliens. The same aliens that stole the Zero Point and are now abducting players. However, there are still some inhabitants on The Island who believe the aliens are good.
Regardless, players can participate in the summer festivities to earn free rewards. Similar to Fortnite’s Winter events, new challenges will unlock daily for players to complete.
