Fortnite’s latest update has revealed a bunch of new cosmetics that are coming soon to Battle Royale. Players can look forward to at least two new outfits and a new pickaxe skin.

Epic has also added new items inside Tilted Towers that suggest an in-game comet will strike soon.

Fortnite’s latest update brings a new Clinger grenade, tweaked mobile controls, and a whole bunch of bug fixes and improvements. But there are some exciting things that weren’t mentioned in Epic’s patch notes. Here’s what we have to look forward to.

New Fortnite skins coming soon

After digging into those update files, Storm Shield One has uncovered a number of new cosmetic items that should be available from the item shop soon. There are four in total, including the Bright Gunner and Steelsight outfits, the Steelcast back bling, and the Global Axe pickaxe.

Other cosmetics will be planned as well, of course, but these are the ones that have been uncovered for now, which suggests they’re next in line to be added to the item shop.

Even bigger things could be planned for the Battle Royale map.

Tilted Towers could be destroyed soon

Weeks ago, telescopes began appearing throughout the Battle Royale map, all pointed towards a comet in the sky. Many expect that comet to wipe out Tilted Towers, which has become the most popular area of the map and is always overrun with players at the beginning of every match.

The comet has been getting larger over time, and it could be about to drop. New objects added to Tilted Towers suggest big things are planned for April 25. Fortnite Intel has discovered signs that depict the comet, Tilted Towers, and another that reads “TOMORROW.”

It seems crazy to think Epic could wipe out Tilted Towers given its popularity among many Battle Royale players, but it could be good for the game. All those players who typically land in this area will move on, making other areas more exiciting at the beginning of the game.

Nothing has been confirmed just yet — this is all speculation for now. But with every update, the future of Tilted Towers looks increasingly uncertain.comet
