It looks like we’re all going to be getting a whole lot of new (or returning) locations in Fortnite in Season X as ‘Moisty Palms’ has been leaked via data files.
Season X started off with a few map changes including the reintroduction of Dusty Depot, but many fans, including us, were disappointed with the number of changes. Epic Games didn’t respond to these complaints in any public way and we’re now beginning to see why that might be.
Epic’s plan for Season X consists of adding locations as we progress throughout the season. In the long run, this’ll prove to be better than a single drop of content due to new changes every few weeks. The latest leak reveals a new ‘Moisty Palms’ location might arrive at some point.
Moisty Palms Season X location leaked
Leaks are a common occurrence in Fortnite due to Epic’s development methods and we’re just fine with that. The latest data-miner treasure gives us a tiny clue of what might be coming next to the island.
Of course, the name suggests that a convoluted time paradox mash-up of Paradise Palms and Moisty Mire is coming. We don’t know much else at this point. The files never reveal anything about possible release dates in case Epic needs to hastily reschedule due to bugs, glitches, or other unforeseen mishaps.
As it’ll be a mix of the two locations, we expect elements of both to remain in play. ‘Palms’ is literally in the title, so it’d be surprising to not see a few standing about. As the season’s idea is to call forth nostalgia, the majority will probably be a swamp or mire of some sort with buildings leftover from Paradise.
We think it’s important to note that ‘Moisty Palms’ would only be the third named location that’s not an alliteration. This means the name has the same letter (or sound) at the beginning like Tilted Towers or Risky Reels. The two before it are The Block and Neo Tilted. The naming trend remains a core aspect of Fortnite, but it makes sense to break the rule for a mix of two locations.
We’ll just have to wait and see. Until then, we’ve got another location change much closer to launch (we think).
Neo Tilted imminently turning into Tilted Town
That’s right. Our beloved Neo Tilted will soon be replaced by a Wild West themed location known as Tilted Town.
We don’t know an immense amount this upcoming event either, but still more so than Moisty Palms. It’s a full replacement of the location with new terrain, buildings, scenery, and more.
The first details were leaked last week and displayed some of the changes coming. Unfortunately, the buildings remain under encryption which isn’t breakable. We suspect that location changes could be temporary slips into a different timeline that revert to the current timeline before the next Rift event.
Neo Tilted currently houses an activated Rift Beacon which began opening a Rift in the skies above. It’ll only be a matter of days before Tilted Town arrives. All the same, exact dates and times are not yet known.
What locations are looking forward to being mashed up through this seasonal content mechanic? It’d be cool to see how they would bring back Risky Reels, Lazy Links, and Anarchy Acres as they are situated fairly close to one another in the past map versions.
