It looks like Epic Games is going to make the phrase "see you on the flipside" a reality with Fortnite Chapter 3 - we don't know all the details yet but there's lots of rumours and a lot of teasers that suggest The Flipside is going to be a very important term in Fortnite going forwards.

If you're not sure what The Flipside is, we've got everything you need to know and everything we know so far.

What is The Flipside in Fortnite?

The Flipside is going to be a reference to the events of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Finale event - and quite possibly the name itself Epic Games is giving to the new map itself.

Officially, the only teasers we've seen to support this argument can be found in Epic Games' announcement that "The End" is coming. As you can see in the Tweet below, there is an upside-down image of a volcano and a mountain in the words " The End" themselves which appear at the end of the clip.

Despite being asked not to leak anything, Fortnite leaks have started to share unreleased footage of the Chapter 2 Finale event and confirmation that The Flipside is a reference to the Fortnite Chapter 2 map being flipped over for Chapter 3.

Spoilers ahead - be warned.

ShiinaBR, a notable Fortnite data miner and leaker, has shared this footage of a TikTok advert for Fortnite Chapter 3 - something that wasn't directly discovered by them but is being shared through their channel.

As you can see above, it looks like there's going to be a literal flipping of the Fortnite Island map from Chapter 2.

In relation to "The Flipside" itself, Fortnite fans are speculating that this is largely an IO Bridge and Facility that is being used to control the power of the Zero Point and helps the IO travel between realities.

It all sounds like Fortnite's strange version of Stranger Things' Upside Down, but a lot more cosmic. We don't know how The Foundation is going to help them out of this, but we can't wait to see what Epic Games has in store for us next.
