Fortnite: Map blown up and replaced with black hole

Posted by: Diablo in News (Games)
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Fans have been left unable to play the game, which has been replaced by a black hole.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".
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.
