Fortnite Map Changes Include Corrupted Areas and a Floating Island

Season 6 of Epic's wildly popular battle royale game is finally here, delivering the usual smattering of new features, changes, tweaks and of course, a new Battle Pass with 100 levels of rewards to unlock. The game developer just released another teaser for the upcoming season, making players even more excited.

Keep an eye on our Fortnite Season 6 hub page as we update the page with the latest changes.

Fortnite Season 6 has officially begun after servers returned online on Thursday, and players feverishly exploring the map for potential updates which had been suggested in recent weeks.

The Haunted Castle POI was added to the map and can be seen atop a mountain. You'll want to head here once you've unlocked the loading screen to gain access to 10 Battle Stars that will undoubtedly help ranking up your Battle Pass.

Pope Calls for Chinese Catholics to Work Toward Reconciliation
The Catholic Church has been rocked by a fresh wave of devastating claims of sexual abuse committed by clergy across the globe. The agreement aims to end the current system in which bishops are appointed by Beijing, sometimes without papal approval.

Islands floating, crops growing, Storm approaching. Uncover what's in the new Battle Pass, explore an updated island with Pets, and become one with the shadows with a new consumable.

The introduction of Corrupted Areas is also an interesting change. And with Halloween approaching, it's only fitting that we now have a Haunted Castle overlooking Haunted Hills.

There are also a new item called shadow stones, which when consumed turn your into a sort of ghost - you move faster, jump higher, can pass through walls, and turn invisible when you stand still - but you can't use your normal weapons.

Although there certainly weren't as many changes as some fans were expecting, the map is slightly different in season six.
