Season five of Fortnite is almost upon us, and it looks like Epic Games is really stepping it up to make sure we all know about it.
However, one thing they probably wanted to keep close to their collective chest was the map itself. Sadly, it looks like it has already been leaked.
DieBuddies has managed to get hold of an image, and a video is dropping later today.
Looks great. Video will drop in 4 hours! pic.twitter.com/OmnD8rNrR1

As we all know, seasons give you the opportunity to unlock a variety of rewards – including new character and weapon skins, loading screens, emotes and emoticons, and even V-Bucks.
But when is season five coming out? Well, it’s very VERY soon. It’ll be with us on Thursday, July 12th at 8am GMT, which is
UK: 9am (BST)
Europe: 10am (CEST)
East Coast US: 4am (EDT)
West Coast US: 1am (PDT)
Eurogamer reports that even though it starts two days later than originally scheduled in-game, it actually gives you more time on your Season 4 Battle Pass progress and challenges. As with previous seasons, all previous challenges will be wiped when Season 5 begins, so you have to get a wiggle on and make sure you’ve finished everything up before it starts.
It looks like the theme is going to be time travel, as there have been several clues so far regarding random leaks of objects from the past into the current game.
For example, an ancient Greek anchor…
There’s been loads of other weird stuff going on too, when a rocket from the enemy lair on the west side of the map attempted to destroy the Tilted Towers. Obviously, it failed and punctuated the air, causing a huge crack in the sky.
Could this rip in the sky cause a time/space issue that brings the past into the present? We’ll have to wait to find out.
