As Season 8 of Fortnite is coming to a close, Epic Games have already begun setting up and dropping clues in-game for what Season 9 is going to be all about.
So far, Epic Games have done a phenomenal job in creating a fun narrative every season as the map changes along with the new additions to the game. The latest of which includes the sudden appearance of an excavation site alongside the 8.30 update weeks ago.
Initially appearing somewhere in the south-east corner of the map in Fortnite, the dig site have since moved to other areas.
What exactly they are searching for, most players don’t know. Epic Games also haven’t released information regarding what the latest addition to Fortnite is all about.
What players do know, however, is that it has to be something. After all, why would Epic Games put rocks with 100,000,000 HP in the game? Not to mention, they just didn’t put rocks there, they also replenished the HPs of the rocks after they were already cleared via a collective effort by players earlier this season.
While it is possible that could just be an unintended bug, it’s only fair to give Epic Games the benefit of the doubt and believe that this is part of a grand scheme.
Either way, we’ll just have to wait and see what Epic Games has in store for Fortnite in the last few weeks of Season 8 and for Season 9.
