Fortnite Season 6 Patch Notes Reveal 'Darkness Rises' Theme, Invisibility, and Pets

Fortnite is Now Shrouded in Darkness For Season 6

Recent stories about the sixth season of the hugely popular game - which is best known for its Battle Royale mode - had speculated about possible changes to the game's map, with many expecting the area of Loot Lake, which was recently given a trampoline-like viscosity, to undergo a huge facelift. This isn't unusual, as Epic periodically removes items from the game in order to further tweak them or make room for new ones, but this time, the developer has vaulted a larger-than-usual cache of weapons. The Fortnite creator has been releasing more customizable skins lately, so we believe this is going to happen in season 6 as well.

Why it matters: Just when you think you've got the ideal Fortnite Battle Royale strategy figured out, Epic drops a new update that radically alters how the game is played. It just has a floating island on top of it now. Loot Lake has received an overhaul, with it now appearing as a floating island. The cube has left areas of the map corrupted, prompting a haunting renovation and the creation of the new Stones. It'll be interesting to watch late-game fights take place in this area now.

Players can go here to find the new consumable item - Shadow Stones. Harvest season is now upon us and the corn stalks around Fatal Fields are now fully grown, providing a nice hiding place to surprise enemies.




As we've seen in past seasons, what we have right now at the start of Season 6 is now how the map will look by the end of this 10-week season.

Have a poke around Wailing Woods and you'll come across two new houses, as spotted by FNBRLeaks.
