Epic Games are continuing to make a whole host of changes in Fortnite Season X and when you thought it had gotten just about weird enough with BRUTES, new mashup locations could be in the works.
Fans of the popular battle royale title had been clamoring at the prospect of a return to the original Season 1 map before the game’s latest major update, v10.00, landed on August 1.
What they’re seeing instead is a coming together of a number of features and components in a very volatile world, as seen with the huge rift zones that now taken pride of place on the map. Yet, things might be about to get even more interesting.
Dataminer Ep8Script claims to have uncovered a whole host of interesting data file names, with the outstanding files being labeled ‘Moisty Palms’ and ‘Spicy Steps’.
Speculation has been brewing for quite some time among the game’s online community that we could soon see a return of the original Moisty Mire point of interest, but this new potential revelation appears to tease a mashup location between both Paradise Palms and the previous swamp-like location.
Moisty was on the right side of the map when the battle royale mode first released in September 2017, and it would appear that it could be about to make a return in the same spot – currently taken up by the long standing desert biome.
Spicy Steps, on the other hand, has been spotted in data files in the past and fans who are regularly jumping into Fortnite Battle Royale will know that nothing has come of that. Sunny Steps, at the time of writing, is the same as it ever was.[ad name=”article4″]
With NEO Tilted set to experience some big changes as it transitions into its new Tilted Town form, which has previously been leaked, fans will now be on the lookout for clues and teasers at the destinations mentioned.
Whether they find something or not remains to be seen, but the prospect of Rift Zones causing the arrival of mashup locations is something they have never seen before and it could be very interesting to see how it plays out.
