​Season 5 Fortnite Agent: Mysterious Book & France Coordinates Revealed

Whether you like it or not, you can't deny that Epic Games have taken over the gaming world with Fortnite.

This obviously wasn't enough for them, however, as they're now attempting to conquer the real world too, and we have no idea what to expect next.

We reported on the Durr Burger mascot washing up on a California beach and Loot Llamas being spotted all over Europe, but we've not been given any clues as to what these could mean - until now.

The Agent who's protecting the giant Durr Burger dropped a book which coincidentally landed on a self-edited page, where seven circled letters spelled out "nothing."

We know it sounds like the obvious answer, but surely it has to mean something?

It could just be a way for Epic to say these sightings literally mean nothing, and everything was just a wild goose chase. We think they're better than that, though, but what do you reckon?Fortnite

Erich Von Daniken's Return to the Stars is the book in question, and it suggests planet Earth has been visited numerous times by extra-terrestrial beings. Could this mean aliens are making their way through the cracks?

The Agent was also seen giving out a phone number which, if rang, revealed a binary code pointing to Greasy Grove's location on the Fortnite map.

One clever soul went one extra step with this number, however, and said that dialling a 06 extension reveals high quality audio and even more information.

Fortnite Leakage then played the phone call through a spectrogram, and it showed images of a familiar Omega skull (previously seen on the TV countdown) and two long numbers.

"48.8559485, 2.3611878 is the secret message," which if put into Google Maps reveals a Historical and Legal Research Centre in France - thanks for the translation Dexerto!

What do you think this could mean? The whole 'Historical' part suggests the 'periods of time theme' theories could be true, but who knows?

This is all baffling my head right now and I just wish Epic would God damn say what's going on, but we salute them for their effort and can't wait to see what else unfolds.
