Fortnite Season 11 Live Stream Turns Into Black Hole, Telling Fans This Is 'The End'
Fortnite's season 11 live stream has turned Twitter into a frenzy after it suddenly turned the game into a black hole - mysteriously telling the world 'This is the end'.
The live event seems to have seen the popular game's entire original map sucked into a black hole, prompting gamers to believe that this is, indeed, the demise of Fortnite as we know it.
Many of the game's social channels, along with its website, have also since been updated to reflect the curious change.
Understandably, gamers across the internet now have MANY questions - though many believe that Epic Games just ended season 10 of Fortnite in the most explosive way possible.
I actually wouldn't even be sad if this is actually The End of Fortnite...- Tyler ' Code WILDCAT (@I_AM_WILDCAT) October 13, 2019
It's kinda perfect. It's like a movie, or like a show ending. Idk. Feels nice. Closure.
According to Engadget the event saw a missile launch into the sky and trigger loads of rifts, culminating in a meteor strike that appeared to wipe out the map.
Players then also started getting sucked in - though at the time, it wasn't clear what to - before a black hole began glowing in the distance.
Many people expect this bizarre event to serve as Epic's transition to Fortnite Chapter 2, with Engadget speculating it seems 'doubtful' that the original map will survive.
Whatever happens next, CNET argues the moment was an 'unprecedented move for a game this popular'.
Writer Oscar Gonzalez said: "An explosive season-ending event caused the destruction of the island and apparently the game itself as it is not playable as of this writing.
"Fortnite has ended."
He explained that some players were able to play a secret 'minigame', adding: "Players who try to play the game are greeted with a technical difficulties screen and then nothing.
"However, one player did discover that Epic added a little secret. During screen showing the singularity, players can enter a Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start). A minigame similar to the classic Galaga will begin where players can shoot Durrr Burger heads for a high score."
