Fortnite’s Sky Has A Big Crack In It Now

Fortnite players logging in and playing matches right on all platforms should be greeted with a strange sight in the sky: cracks. What this might lead to is still a bit of a mystery, but it’s likely we’re nearing the conclusion of a tease Epic set up earlier in Fortnite’s fourth season.

When the season began, players noticed the map had undergone some changes, one of which was an enormous rocket players couldn’t interact with. After a series of found countdown timers and teases, Fortnite players were shown a message saying the rocket would be launching today at around 12:30pm Central time across all platforms. Well, now the rocket has launched, and players have lost their minds.

Now that the rocket’s launched, it’s broken the sky. Or at least, caused a big crack in it to appear on every platform. So what’s going to happen next? What is this big crack in the sky teasing? Some cool new content? Is this more on the trail of the Season 5 tease from earlier this year? Is the crack meant to symbolize the convergence of worlds, which will lead to crossplay with PlayStation 4, overcoming some of the obstacles to getting there? We can only stand back and see.

It’s pretty cool that Epic was able to pull off a neat little cross-platform event like this and not have the servers break. But then again, that’s one of the advantages of being one the biggest game in the world, right? Large servers?
