The image seems to depict the Battle Bus departing the island, which could further tie into rumors that Season 11 will introduce a brand new map. Meanwhile, a leak regarding Fortnite: Chapter 2 has appeared online, suggesting that the new season could be a larger-than-average revamp of the game that will add boats, a new map, and more.
Season 10 of Fortnite is almost over, which means Season 11 is just around the corner. The current season of Epic’s popular battle royale shooter is scheduled to end this Sunday, October 13, after the developer extended it by an extra week, and it appears the new end date will coincide with some kind of big, world-changing in-game event.
Just what that event will entail remains to be seen, but these events have traditionally had major ramifications for the following season. That’s sure to again be the case with Season 11. While Epic has not yet announced an exact start date or time for the new season, it is expected to begin shortly after Season 10 ends.ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT
The developer has also been fairly tight-lipped about what we can expect to change in the upcoming season, but there are some things we know about it or can infer based on what has been happening in Fortnite the past couple of weeks. To help get you up to speed, we’ve rounded up everything we know about Fortnite Season 11 below.
When Does “The End” Event Start?
Just as it does before every seasonal changeover, Epic v buck generator is holding a major in-game event in Fortnite ahead of Season 11. This season’s event is ominously known as “The End,” and it’s all scheduled to unfold in only a couple of days. According to the countdown timers that have begun appearing all across the Fortnite island, the event will occur at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET on October 13.
What Will Happen During The Event?
At this moment, it’s unclear just what will occur during the event, but it will almost undoubtedly lead to some big changes in Season 11. It will also presumably involve The Visitor, the time-traveling antagonist whose rocket in Season 4 created the giant rift in the sky, precipitating the events that would eventually lead up to this moment.

Like many other elements from Fortnite’s past, The Visitor returned to the game during Season 10. Now known as “The Scientist,” the antagonist is once again building a rocket at Dusty Depot, which will presumably launch once the countdown timers expire. That’s not all; the character seems to have infected Fortnite’s controversial BRUTE mechs with some kind of virus, causing them to explode immediately upon appearing.
