Fortnite Chapter 3 Map Concepts
Whenever a new season or chapter of Fortnite is due, some amazing concepts are produced by the community to show off their ideas and desires for what's next.
One of the better concepts we've seen so far comes from @SilentSFM on Twitter. A lot of concepts throughout Chapter 2 has proposed an isolated island as the central point within the map and this one does the same.
Another popular choice among concepts is the idea of much larger areas with varied environments. This means having a large snowy area as well as a desert and swamp area. While we think there is an appeal to this, it wouldn't be quite so blatant or forced in the final product.
Could Tilted Towers Return?
One major POI that is almost unavoidable at the moment is Tilted Towers. So many members of the Fortnite community are calling for it to return. It's fondly remembered as one of the very early POIs in the game to offer something different to the rest of the map.
It had verticality as well as being quite densely packed with plenty of rooms and a high spawn rate for loot. This made it a very desirable landing spot in Chapter 1.
We think there is a chance it could return in Chapter 3, but changes would need to be made. As Fortnite has evolved, so have the POIs. The original Tilted Towers would likely feel very dated if it came back without some tweaks to bring it in line with the modern game.
