Battle royale title Fortnite will kick off its second chapter with the end of the latest season on December 4. In an event called “The End”, players will play for “one last stand for the fate of the island”. The game tells.
This means that Fortnite players will soon be playing on an entirely new map, starting with the next chapter. A similar phenomenon was observed at the end of the final chapter of Fortnite when the game’s original island was destroyed by a black hole.
This left the game offline for a few days before entering Chapter 2. Similarly, Chapter 3 is expected to begin sometime after Chapter 2 ends on December 4th, but we have no information on that yet. What the third chapter might look like and what new changes players can expect to see in-game is still a mystery.

Join “The End,” a once-only, in-game event and fight for your legacy, the Fortnite team wrote in a new blog post.
