As the Fortnite map continues its transformation in preparation for Season 5, another oddity has appeared on the map in the form of a western-inspired stage wagon, emerging from one of the many expanding rifts now scattered around. Check out a video of the wagon suddenly emerging here.
In keeping with events since the manic missile launch last weekend resulting in a massive rift in the sky, and the subsequent appearance of multiple smaller rifts across the map causing in-game objects to suddenly vanish (bye bye tomato man, motel logo, and a bunch of other signs), the stage wagon may be a hint at what is to come.
The wild west’s vehicle of choice gives credence to theories circulating on Reddit and elsewhere within the Fortnite community that Season 5 is set to be heavily slanted towards the historical, with space-time anomalies shifting objects from different time periods to the map.
This weekend, a real-life replica of the Durrr Burger mascot inexplicably found its way into the desert near Palmdale, California, further backing up the time travel theory, though the appearance in the real world hints at some form of ARG or may simply be a clever ploy on Epic’s part.
With only three days before Season 5 starts, we imagine more props will start materializing across the map. As has been a running theme throughout the past couple of weeks, the sudden appearance of the wagon offers up more questions than answers.
I just hope the wagon becomes Season’s 5 shopping cart. Jaunting around Tilted Towers on that thing, blurting out ‘yeehaw’ over teams peak sounds incredible.
