Despite such massive collaborations, we did not witness a lot of story development in Chapter 2 Season 5. The Zero Point remained exposed for the entire season, but the map did not go through any significant changes.

However, Epic Games has now released the cinematic trailer for the Zero Crisis story for Chapter 2 Season 6. As expected, it has dropped some huge hints about the upcoming events in Fortnite.

The trailer begins with Agent Jonesy heading towards the Zero Point with a Rift Gun. Doctor Slone, his boss, orders him to leave the area in order to save himself. He rejects the orders and mentions that he’s going to ‘the Seven’ for help.

Veterans must remember ‘the Seven’ from Chapter 1 Season 3. This group of seven cosmic entities comprises the Visitor, the Scientist, the Paradigm, and four unknown members. As per fan theories, the Seven is actually the Visitor and six of his unique versions from alternative realities.

On his way to the Zero Point, Agent Jonesy finds all the bounty hunters in Chapter 2 Season 5. To say the least, it was utter chaos as Kratos, Mancake, Predator, Master Chief, and many others were fighting each other.

Agent Jonesy somehow managed to throw the Rift Gun to the Zero Point, which led to an asteroid falling on the island. To everyone’s surprise, it was a member of the Seven named the Foundation. This confirms that the Seven visitors will play an important role in Chapter 2 Season 6, and Agent Jonesy will work alongside them.

Another highlight from the cinematic trailer for Chapter 2 Season 6 was an intense fight sequence where Xenomorphs and Terminators attacked Agent Jonesy. Surprisingly, Ripley arrived with a Pump Shotgun and killed the monsters to save him.

With the addition of the Lever Action Shotgun, a majority of fans and Twitch streamer SypherPK had anticipated that the Pump Shotgun won’t return. However, it seems like the classic weapon is not leaving the Fortnite arsenal anytime soon.

All in all, Chapter 2 Season 6 seems like an exciting continuation of the Chapter 2 Season 5 storyline. In addition to that, the map will finally have a bunch of new POIs, NPCs, and of course, weapons.
