It's been one hell of a wait for Chapter 2 Season 1, but despite some delays with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, IT IS NOW LIVE.
Gold will be making an appearance, according to Forbes, and will be playing a significant role - as both a colour and building material.
One of the first clues shown on January 15th was the data-mined legendary skin for "Oro" (meaning gold in Spanish) which came alongside an inscription - “Golden Treasure, an Eternal Obsession.”
GOLD DIGGER - Lucas7yoshi dug up these treasures and posted on Twitter
However, Reknowned Fortnite leaker Lucas has also discovered a series of props which are solid gold versions of existing objects in the game. It certainly looks like we're in for one of the most visually exciting seasons to date.
With any new season usually come a few map changes, depending on how crazy Epic Games are feeling.
Let's go over everything we know about the possible map changes coming to Fortnite!
NEW MAP CONFIRMED! - NEW POI!
ADVENTURE AWAITS - What parts of the new POI can you see?
Tweeted out by Fortnite data miner @HYPEX, the full background of the latest teaser image has been encrypted. From this new image, we can get a sense of the new POI coming with the new season as well! In the top left, HYPEX has circled that there will also be some additions to the center island which is a landmark on the current map.
Besides changes to existing POI's, we can see that the new landmark will feature some sort of helipad it appears via the bottom left. Also, there seem to be some buildings so it gives off Tilted Tower similarities!
BACK AT IT - The new Season will bring some BIG changes
Pretty much every season of Fortnite has introduced some sort of new POI, whether it is the aftermath of a destroyed POI or a brand new one.

New Physics Engine
Epic Games recently shared a blog post revealing Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2’s release date (20 February), as well as some massive news regarding Fortnite's shift to a new physics engine in early February.
In a blog post from the Fortnite Team, they share the news that Fortnite will be moving to a new physics engine in the coming weeks.
CHANGE IS COMING: This is the first time Fortnite has seen a major engine update since it launched
The post said:
“Beginning with the release of the 11.50 update in early February, Fortnite will be moving to Unreal Engine’s Chaos Physics Engine.”
There will undoubtedly be some issues when the change is first implemented, but it will be “closely monitoring feedback and making improvements over time.”
ASHES TO ASHES: Buildings will now crumble away, rather than just vanishing when destroyed
Furthermore, switching to the "Chaos physics engine" allows a build to collapse if it gets shot or exploded, rather than just disappearing.
This is something that Fortnite players have been calling out for, so it's great to see the development team listening to the demands of the community.
BIG CHANGES - The bottom right of the map is most likely to be affected!
It is hard to say right now where the map changes could come. However, if we were to guess where we could see some possible changes, it would probably be somewhere in the bottom right of the map.
