As the dust settles on Fortnite's destroyed Tilted Towers, Epic teases new season
If you missed it, last weekend saw the destruction of several major locations in Fortnite – not least Tilted Towers, perhaps the game’s most talked about (and complained about) area of all time.
Fans had worked for weeks to unlock the portal uncovered by Loot Lake. When it opened, players were transported into a sci-fi vault – where, supposedly, Epic places weapons and items when they’re removed from the game. Players across the world voted live for an item to be unvaulted (and picked drum gun, sigh) before returning to the regular map to see its volcano finally erupting.
Retail Row was the first location to be struck off the map, followed by a volcanic salvo aimed at Polar Peak which left an ominous crack in its cliff face. But it was Tilted Towers which took the brunt of the eruption. Visit it now, and it has been flattened (save for the one building which previously got destroyed every season, which of course now is the one still left standing).
