Fortnite: New patch brings new map area and huge Doomsday tower to Battle Royale

New map area in Fortnite: A few days ago Epic Games released the last patch of Chapter 3 Season 2 in Fortnite. This not only included some weapon adjustments, but also changed a large part of the well-known map. A new area called “The Collider” is now in the Battle Royale.

Within this map area is a huge tower that is filled with an orange colored energy. There is a high probability that the tower is a doomsday device, which at the end of the season could ensure that the entire map in Fortnite is destroyed. Some clues about Season 3 in Fortnite are already known.
