Fortnite Falls into Darkness

A huge asteroid has blown up the map in Fortnite – to mark the end of season 10.

Fans have been left unable to play the game, which has been replaced by a black hole.

Fortnite has also deleted all of its tweets and is simply running a livestream of the black hole on Twitter – which has had more than 290,000 likes.

Forbes’ gaming writer Paul Tassi described the event as “the end of an era”.

Twitter post by @FortniteGame: ...

For those who don’t know – Fortnite allows up to 100 players to fight individually or as part of a team to be the last standing on a virtual battlefield.

On Sunday, the island in which the gamers play was destroyed by an asteroid.

Fans had been predicting a dramatic finale of season 10 which kicked off in August.

Epic Games – which owns Fortnite – had confirmed “The End” event would take place on Sunday 13 October.

A countdown timer appeared in the game, above the rocket at Dusty Depot.

Players who were online during “The End” saw an in-game meteor shower which appeared to wipe out the Fornite map.

These players were then sucked into a rift and the screen was replaced with a black hole in the centre.

Some players were pretty shocked.

Some were getting withdrawal symptoms.

Others were mourning the Fortnite map – which had stood strong for 10 seasons.

Twitter post by @Alraiah_Shakur: This is the end thank you #Fortnite 💔💔😭😭

While some were left wondering how long it would take for Fortnite to return.

Twitter post by @Kayckbr_:

The black hole which has replaced the map appears to be showing up numbers at random points.

Twitter post by @chamboiii: #Fortnite #TheEnd the black hole keeps pulsing and showing numbers? Anyone have any ideas on that?

And it’s got people thinking.

Twitter post by @iconkathiana: #Fortnite Everyone analyzing what the numbers in the black hole mean

Tech boss Elon Musk even got in on the act.

In October last year, he tweeted out a fake article which suggested he had bought Fortnite only to delete it.

And he made a joke of it when the black hole appeared on Sunday.

Twitter post by @elonmusk: Haha

Fans have since been left wondering when they can expect season 11 to launch.
