After a spectacular Season 10 finale event, Fortnite went dark as the entire map seemed to be absorbed into a black hole. Many players were surprised by the move since the title has not been playable for more than 24 hours as Epic Games is working on the next update.
It appears that there will be no Season 11 as the developer plans to release a major update along with a new title. From now in the game will be known as Fortnite Chapter 2, and it will be filled with fresh content right from the start.

The leaked trailer showcases a new battle pass and a selection of interesting content. Epic Games plans to enhance how to battle pass leveling works. Players will now earn medals during each match when they perform specific actions. Killing a player will convey a Battle Metal, looting items from a chest offers a Scavenger metal and players who harvest materials will earn a Survivor medal.
At this point, it is not clear if the medals will be accompanied by experience point, but it is hinted that they will advance the battle pass progress, along with the classic challenges. If challenges and medals will reward experience together players may have a chance to level faster in comparison to previous seasons.
Since the previous map was sucked into the void, a fresh one will be available, offering new interest points among which we can count an eerie nuclear facility, a forest filled with threes, and what appears to be a dam.
Secondary activities could be introduced as the trailer shows players fishing, and they can also swim and dive into smaller lakes. Stealth could also play an important role in the new era as a player character jumps silently from a dumpster and prepares to ambush unsuspecting players.
It is likely that Fortnite Chapter 2 will be released in the following days.
