Epic launch of Fortnite: Chapter 2 - Season 3 has come with a mother of all floods but some of the water has now receded. Additionally, data miners found the next land-revealing date.
Fortnite's flood was almost of Biblical proportions, except for fewer arks and more water skiing cats, but Epic won't be keeping it that way for much longer.
As part of the latest developments on the Fortnite island, Epic turned up the heat it seems, as the water receded and revealed a significant chunk of the land. In short, more land to shoot around on.
Furthermore, data mining revealed that this is just one of the events where Fortnite will be getting parts of its island back. With this one in the bag, you can expect the next Fortnite heatwave in ten days, precisely on July 11, 2020.
In related news, Fortnite: Battle Royale, Creative and Save the World are all doing away with the Early Access label, which shouldn't mean much for the first two - it's business as usual.
Fortnite: Save the World, on the other hand, will see Epic Games slowing down support for the game, although they claim it isn't by much. However, the PvE side of Fortnite won't be going free-to-play, in spite of shedding the Early Access label.
Thankfully, players who shelled out whatever price they did for Fortnite: Save the World will be rewarded by Epic, and you can find more details in the above link.
As for Fortnite's newly uncovered dry land, we wish you happy building and shooting until the next map expansion in 10 days. We're sure Epic will have more surprises come that date, but until then enjoy your fishing.
