Secret Basement in Fortnite Island

The northern side of the islands has an electric outpost that has been present in the game ever since its first season. While the outpost might seem to contain nothing intriguing in general, going farther down the stairs reveals a secret underground basement that leads to a spooky room.

The room has several CCTV cameras and a secret cabinet that makes it seem like you’re being watched. There is a chair placed in front of the cabinet and no one knows the purpose of the room is. This indeed generates a very spooky vibe and sets the mood right for Halloween.

Time Travel to Fortnite Chapter One

Epic Games has added several features, but none would compare to a possible time-travel feature that could allow players to go back to Chapter One of the game. Yes, that’s right! Players might be able to travel to the older Fortnite islands as speculated by YouTuber Communic Gaming.  

The islands in Season 8 are popping up with chests from Chapter One, which might be an indication that Chapter Three might be a culmination of both Older and Newer Generations of Fortnite Chapters.
