We’ve all heard the rumors of the impending doom reigning down on the most popular POI in Fortnite. Tilted Towers is supposed to be seeing its destruction yesterday. Yet users are seeing that the point of interest is still there.
Possible Impact Dates
- 21st April 2018 (Theory Below)
- End of Season 3 (April 30, 2018)
Why Tilted Towers?
While some of the community delved into the mysterious vibrations heard upon spawning into the battle royale mode, it appeared that this revealed a morse code detailing today’s date and ‘F5’ (the coordinates of Tilted). With the meteor shining in the sky leading towards Tilted, large numbers in the community are under the impression that some area of the map is to be hit with an apocalyptic event. It would be ironic as the date is the same as the creepy voicemail in that viral video about the world ending. However, the truth is yet to be revealed.
Epic Games roll out a weekly update on a Thursday evening, often adding new items and rotating lesser used items into the vault (such as the Guided Missiles which have just recently gone into the vault). A mini-update follows a few hours later, addressing small bugs that may have arisen due to Thursday’s update.
When Will We Know?
So, when will we find out the fate of the seemingly doomed Tilted Towers? Despite today’s date, no further update is scheduled. However, as reported by users, a new feature in-game triggers an audio clip when the player aims at the meteor in the sky. Could we see Tilted Towers survive the next update? Or will it perish at the end of Season Three in two weeks’ time? Could it be that the entire thing is a conspiracy designed to keep fans guessing as to what comes next? Some fans think that Tilted Towers will be destroyed on the 21st instead. This theory comes from the football fields in the game as they all show a 2-1 score. All we can do now is wait and see.
What do you think of the entire apocalyptic Tilted Towers scenario? Will you be sad to see it go?
