Fortnite' Season 11 "The End" just destroyed the map. What does it mean?


The Season 10 end event leading us into Season 11, dubbed “The End,” has finally come and gone.

During the chaotic event, yet another rocket launched from the island at the location that’s had the countdown for some time now. Once it reached a certain altitude, it fractured space-time and created another huge blue rift — just like the previous rocket launch from several seasons ago. And just like in that event, the rocket propelled through that rift and out another on the map, repeating many times as explosions cascaded everywhere.


Eventually, they all converged at a point on the ground at Dusty Depot, right under the meteor that’s been sitting there all season. Dozens exploded there, opening up a rift large enough to transport the entire meteor into the sky. A laser pointed directly at the Zero Point, leading the meteor to crash directly into it, sending all the players flying high into the sky. Then after some catastrophic reaction, it created a black hole that spaghettified everything — the Zero Point, the meteor, the island, the players.

For at least half an hour, millions of people stared at this black hole in space as Twitch nearly crashed and all official Fortnite social media accounts changed their profile pictures to black screens, some of them with this black hole at the center. Over on Instagram, the official Fortnite account just kept uploading black images over and over.
