By holding a live event called Fracture on the 3rd of December at 9 p.m. UK time, the developers of Fortnite have surprised players by giving the impression that the game’s third map will be retired before the end of the currently active season.
Epic Games, the company that developed Fortnite, provided a teaser for its upcoming Fracture mode tonight at the conclusion of the Fortnite Champion Series, which was the company’s first significant in-person Fortnite competition in several years. After the presentation of the trophies for the competition, a title card for Fracture displayed on the screen. This card only listed the upcoming live event’s date, time, and description as the “Chapter 3 Finale event.”
Each “Chapter” of the Fortnite video game has so far culminated with a fresh start for the much-loved island setting of the game’s battle royale mode. After two years and ten seasons, the game’s original Island was swallowed up by a black hole in October 2019, bringing the total number of seasons to 20. After a further two years, which were then broken up into a total of eight seasons, the game’s second Island was finally flipped over in December of 2021, revealing the new map that had been hiding underneath all along.
Each new Chapter has also traditionally served as a testing ground for Epic to introduce major new gameplay concepts. For example, Chapter 2 included the ability to swim as well as boats and other vehicles. In the meantime, Chapter 3 included new gameplay elements such as sprinting, mantling, and the No Build mechanism.
Fans of Fortnite have a lot of questions tonight, which is without a doubt exactly what Epic Games intended to happen. Why does it appear like Fortnite will be moving on from its third map so quickly – after just four seasons that have lasted for only one year? What exactly does the term “Fracture” represent, and is there more to this so-called alteration than initially meets the eye? And what fresh elements will be included in the fourth chapter?
Regarding the very final question, we do, at the very least, have some kind of an idea. Leakers of information about Fortnite are convinced that the long-awaited arrival of the game’s Unreal Editor will take place in December of this year. Epic head Tim Sweeney had previously guaranteed that the editor will appear at some time in 2022. [UPDATE: Sweeney has since stated that this will now occur slightly later, in late January.]
Fans have given the tool the moniker “Creative 2.0,” and it is anticipated that it will equip content creators with the means to develop Fortnite experiences that are significantly more sophisticated than what is possible with the mode’s present iteration. Sweeney has also previously broached the subject of the concept of content creators being able to monetize their work, which is something that is not yet available within the game of Fortnite itself. To capture players’ interest, the addition of all of this to Fortnite would probably work well in conjunction with the release of a brand new Island map.
It’s possible that the name of this event, “Fracture,” is a reference to all of this; it may be a reference to Epic’s decision to hand over greater control of Fortnite to content developers, thus diminishing the significance of its own core Battle Royale modes. This year, at the beginning of the year, Sweeney indicated that creator-made experiences accounted for fifty percent of all gameplay in Fortnite.
However, this does not mean that the tale of Fortnite itself has come to an end; just the contrary. Even though the wicked Imagined Order organization was destroyed in Chapter 3, its main boss Geno is still at large and appears to be waiting in the wings for a full and suitable debut. There is also the question of the all-gobbling Chrome goo that is featured in the current season, as well as the post-apocalyptic civilization that lies behind it; at the moment, it is being led on the Island by a man titled The Herald, and it is ominously referred to as “The Nothing.”
The fact that Fortnite’s Fracture event will begin just over two weeks after the release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 adds another layer of intrigue to the situation. It does not appear to be a coincidence, especially given the timing of the disclosure of this news, which comes just a few days before the premiere of Activision’s updated version of the battle royale. It reminds me of when Epic provided fans with a free Fortnite battle pass around the same time that Apex Legends was initially made available.
It’s time to speculate! Is it possible that Fracture also alludes to another significant shift? The current map of Chapter 3 and all of the growth that has taken place on it over the course of the past year and four seasons have both grown on me to the point where I adore them both. It is now, in my opinion, a best-of for the entirety of Fortnite to date, including fan-favorite places, remixed classics, and a large number of Easter eggs.
I wish it could have lasted for a longer period of time… and who knows, maybe it will? It’s possible that Chapter 3 could end so quickly because this map will continue to be available as one of two options to pick from. This is an idea that Fortnite has not yet implemented, but its rival games have been experimenting with it for a long time. Since it has been confirmed that the Island in Fortnite has two sides, the question arises as to whether or not the currently active Chapter 3 map will continue to be used, with the possibility of a revamped Chapter 2 map being added as a new option for Chapter 4.
There is one thing that is certain: there are fewer than three weeks left in Fortnite Chapter 3. And as the days continue to dwindle down — and as the novelty of Warzone 2.0 begins to wear off — Epic Games will most certainly tease more.
