Fortnite’s Countdown Lead To A Tear In The Sky

We’ve been seeing Fortnite’s countdown tick for a while now, and it finally hit zero. Today’s event was the launch of the rocket in Anarchy Acres, and it’s left a tear in the sky.

Fortnite’s countdown was to a one-time event, a rocket launch. We’ve speculated that it might have something to do with Season 5. Season 4 began in a similar way with the impact of the meteor, and so far, we know Season 5 has been teased with a mysterious siren.

If you missed the event today, it went like this: The rocket launched from the evil lair in Anarchy Acres and into the sky. Lasers honed in on Titled Towers, and it looked like it was going to destroy the location, but instead it hit what appeared to be an invisible shield or portal. The rocket disappeared and then reappeared nearby and spun out of control. It then shot back up towards the sky, and created the “rip” in the sky that can now be seen on the map.

At this time, we’re not sure what this means, or what the electrical charges (seen above) could be. But, there’s a ton of other things happening in the world of battle buses and stink bombs this weekend. It’s a double XP weekend on all of Fortnite’s platforms and the shopping cart returned for Week 9 challenges. Playground mode was delayed to next week and replaced by a 50 versus 50 limited-time mode instead.

Nintendo Switch Weekly Recap: Nintendo Labo X Mario Kart 8, And Nintendo Europe Sees New Leadership

As we’re heading into the thick of summer, this week’s Nintendo Switch news is particularly light. We got a few more details on games that are to come, but few new releases and updates. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t see any interesting headlines.

Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Labo‘s toy-cons are now compatible. Instead of all those bulky, plastic gaming accessories you’ll never know what to do with after this generation, recycling is now an option. The Switch might also see more Monster Hunter titles outside of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, but they might not be the one you’re looking for. Nintendo is also under new leadership in Europe. There are also plenty of deals to keep an eye on this week, so be sure to scroll down and take a peek.
