Fortnite Season 5 Teases Interdimensional Hijinx

Fortnite Season 5 Teases Interdimensional Hijinx

We are approaching the beginning of Fortnite Season 5, and the world of Fortnite is experiencing bizarre anomalous activities. The sky has split open, objects are warping into our world, and now objects are appearing into Fortnite.

A history of anomalous warps

Last weekend, a rocket that had been counting down in the super villain base launched and cracked the sky. Since then strange smaller rifts have appeared in the game and are sucking in nearby objects. This includes landmarks like the Tomatohead mascot in Tomato Town and the Durrr Burger in Greasy Grove:

Later, a real-life photographer named Sela Shiloni found the Durrr Burger in a desert in the Palmdale area:

It would seem Epic Games is placing props as part of a marketing buzz for Fortnite Season 5. There’s no word on if Sela was in on the gag or if they legitimately stumbled upon it.

Just last Saturday, we also got to see something warped into the Fortnite world. The object looks like an antiquated anchor for a ship. There’s naturally been tons of buzz over what it could mean. Reddit user ‘spacewolfplays’ points out an important fact about it: it’s the first object to appear in-game since the rocket launch:

Nothing else has appeared. But several things were taken away. The point they’re making is after the first thing disappeared, an hour latter the next portal was revealed (dormant). 24 hours later, that thing disappeared, an hour later the next portal appeared. repeat.

This is the first thing to appear rather than disappear.

The huge amounts of speculation created by these events shows off Fortnite’s ability to get players excited. These seasonal events create big unpredictable stories that get the player base buzzing like amorous wasps. Soon, we’ll get to see where all this speculation leads.

Fortnite Season 5 is slated to start Thursday, July 12 at 4 AM EDT.
