Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 is coming to a close in a few weeks, which means the end-of-season event is on the horizon. As longtime fans of the battle royale will know, Epic Games likes to kick off the new season with a bang. We’ve seen meteors hit the map, a black hole, and even time travel as a part of these events. For Season 2 though, we’re not sure what Fortnite has in store. However, we do know that it has something to do with Midas and Pleasant Park thanks to some recent changes.

Pleasant Park and other Fortnite locations are changing

In terms of substance, these map changes aren’t nearly as large as the ones we’ve seen in the past. The Season 2 alterations are more subtle but seem to be leading into something bigger. While we don’t know what this is yet, we know which locations could be involved.

Over the past few weeks, the Crash Site POI has been slowly evolving. The supply boxes from inside the crashed plane have been disappearing and vines have been growing around the plane. We’re not sure what the vines mean, but the supplies have seemingly been transported to the Pleasant Park safe house.

Fun Fact! Since the start of Season 2 Chapter 2 the Crash Site landmark has been slowly changing! The supplies inside have all been moving to the shadow house in pleasant park, and just recently vines started growing on the plane, nothing huge, but definitely excited to see what happens next update! from FortNiteBR

From the looks of it, the agents of Season 2 are gearing up for an all-out fight. The two Fortnite factions, Ghost and Shadow, have butted heads all season long, and it looks like the sides will fight when Fortnite Season 2 comes to a close.

This is backed up by a recent change involving the Midas skin. As many know, when someone has the Midas skin equipped, anything they touch turns to gold. Well, something on the Fortnite map has turned to gold overnight, being a desk chair in a Salty Springs house.

Midas’s chair got moved from the agency to the big blue house in salty springs. At first I thought this was where Midas may have moved because there is a ghost document on the table, but if you look in the trash you can see a "Join Ghost" poster, interesting, definitely keep an eye on this location! from FortNiteBR

It’s not entirely clear what this means, but it seems like Midas will play a role in the Season 2 event. Unfortunately, that event won’t occur for another few weeks, but the map changes should keep coming with every new update.
