Season 10 of Fortnite is almost upon us. The next season of Epic’s popular battle royale game officially kicks off on all platforms this Thursday, August 1, and as the developer traditionally does before each seasonal changeover, it has begun dropping a few teaser images, which seem to hint at some kind of time warp theme for the new season.
The first teaser, which you can see below, was shared ahead of the finals of the Fortnite World Cup. The tweet simply reads, “Think Back,” and features an image of Dusty Depot, which was famously destroyed by a giant meteor and became Dusty Divot all the way back in Season 4. This seems to suggest the beloved area could be making a return in Season 10.
The second teaser image, which dropped earlier today, features what appears to be some kind of new mech that’s coming to the game. “Look Forward,” the tweet reads, which again hints at some kind of space-time disruption taking place in the new season. You can take a look at the second teaser below. What might be more notable than the mech are the symbols on the sides. The one on the left matches a symbol adorned on The Drifter, a skin from back in Season 4. This subtle reference might suggest the skin or character is making a comeback in some capacity.
Each seasonal changeover in Fortnite is typically preceded by some world-changing event, and earlier this month, a giant robot did battle with the monster that was formerly frozen beneath Polar Peak. The mech was ultimately able to defeat the monster by impaling it with a giant sword hidden beneath Neo Tilted, but the Vault in Loot Lake was damaged during the confrontation and is becoming increasingly unstable, which may be the catalyst for whatever time-related event leads to Season 10.
With Season 10 only a couple of days away, time is quickly running out to complete Fortnite’s Season 9 challenges. If you need help mopping up any remaining tasks, you can find tips and guides for all the trickier ones in our complete Season 9 challenges roundup. Fortnite’s second birthday event is also underway until July 31, and it has its own set of challenges to complete and rewards to unlock. Most are fairly straightforward, but the only one that may pose a problem asks you to dance in front of 10 different birthday cakes. Be sure to check out our birthday cake locations guide.
