Fortnite Battle Royale players believe they have found a new clue supporting the Tilted Towers meteor theory, and the clue is the meteor itself.
Several observant Fortnite players recently pieced together a theory that Tilted Towers would soon be destroyed by a meteor. A surprising amount of evidence was presented supporting this theory, most obvious of which being the light recently found to be streaking across the game world’s sky. Now, an even more damning piece of the puzzle has been discovered under the very foundations of Tilted Towers.
Using the game’s recently added replay system, Reddit user darksmudgey managed to get a view below the surface of Tilted Towers, where they discovered a rounded object that many speculate to be the comet/meteor. The object’s shape and color have a weird, “unfinished” nature about them, but considering players had to clip through the game’s geometry to see the object, it presumably isn’t ready for prime time.
In addition to the object, a fair amount of rendered and textured land was also discovered under the map. Most believe this to be the start of the new area that will replace Tilted Towers, but some are wondering if it is just left-over assets from the map before Tilted Towers was put in. Whatever the object and the map assets are, Epic has yet to comment on any of it, but fans can judge for themselves from the images below.
In other Fortnite news, the game was recently offline for almost a full day due to a “critical failure with one of [its] account service databases.” This sounds dramatic, but luckily, servers are now back up and running.
