The game developer just released another teaser for the upcoming season, making players even more excited. I'm traveling now and have yet to try these out myself, but apparently, once you consume a Shadow Stone you can pass through objects, so this opens up a whole new meaning of flanking your enemy.

Keep an eye on our Fortnite Season 6 hub page as we update the page with the latest changes. It's now known as the Floating Island.

The above image is how the map looks as of the Fortnite season 6 update. The surrounding area is still a lake, but it has been fractured into multiple levels with some areas of shallow water that make it easier to run across.

"Darkness Rises" is the theme for Season 6 and follows the events of the purple cube and its subsequent dissolving into Loot Lake.

You'll also notice Corrupted Areas scattered around the map. While not as extensive as previous map changes to the battle royale game, there are still a few highlights tucked away in here.

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. FortniteIntel points out that Wailing Woods now has new cabins along with an underground bunker. We'll get into that and one of the most powerful vaulted weapons in Fortnite history in this video as well as every vaulted item in the game.
