Fortnite Season 10 Ends as Black Hole Destroys Map

Fortnite isn’t shy about putting live events in-game. Fissure-creating rockets and giant monster vs mecha battles have played out live in front of millions of players, but Fortnite‘s latest stunt really takes the cake.

Fortnite’s 10th season concluded on October 13th with an event aptly called ‘The End’. Anyone playing at the time of the event witnessed a barrage of asteroids striking the map, culminating in an impact that created an all-consuming black hole. The game world and every player was dramatically sucked up by the vortex, leaving only a black screen for gamers to stare at in disbelief. That was 22 hours ago and the game has been offline since.

I know it sounds too crazy to be true, but here’s a gameplay video in case you want to see it with your own eyes:

 

 

It’s currently impossible to play Fortnite. If you try logging in now, you’ll simply be presented with a livestream of the black hole, gently swirling as atmospheric music loops. There is also no official word on when Fortnite will be returning either. In fact, Fortnite’s official Twitter has effectively been deleted entirely – only one post remains: the black hole livestream.

Despite the information black-out, Nintendo’s customer support page for Fortnite was quick to reassure die-hard players that “your inventory items and V-Bucks are secure.” Given the overwhelming commercial success of the game, it’s highly unlikely that we’ve seen the last of Fortnite as we know it. The million-dollar question is: ‘when will the game return?’ At the moment, only Epic Games knows the answer.

As this story develops, feel free to monitor the black hole livestream here:
