Fortnite fans can discover the map by flipping their social media photos
Fortnite Update 19.0 is about to be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
The new Fortnite update will launch alongside a period of server downtime, which will reportedly end at 3pm GMT on December 5.
The update heralds the start of a new chapter, as well as a brand new season.
Needless to say, the new main feature is the introduction of a brand new map for Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1.
Epic Games is currently unveiling the map as part of its FortniteFlipped social media campaign.
“Turn your world around and a new one will be revealed,” tweets Epic.
“Use #FortniteFlipped, flip your social profile and posts, and work together to reveal the new island.”
Below you can see the current status of the map. Express Online will continue to update this article as the story develops.
Judging by the image, the map will contain a large area of snow. This is ideal for the upcoming Winter Wonderland event.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Map Reveal
It also looks like Epic will reintroduce a desert area, which can be seen in the southeast of the image.
Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t look like the map will be submerged and split into smaller islands.
If the recent leaks are anything to go by, update 19.0 will add some interesting new gameplay features.
Based on clues discovered by hardcore Fortnite fans, Epic Games could add throwing axes to Battle Royale.
The twist, though, is that the throwing axes can be caught by opponents, making it a somewhat risky weapon to use.
As previously reported, Epic Games appears to be working on a reworked version of the FlintKnock Pistol, complete with improved stats and new features.
Fortnite Prison Jones and Spider-Man Skin
If a recent artwork from Epic Games has something to offer, players can use weapons while sliding. This new movement mechanism allows players to slide to their knees while firing guns. You can see the sliding teaser artwork below.
Other new gameplay features include rideable animals, which can be tamed with the new Saddle item.
As for Chapter 3 skins, a video teaser from Donald Mustard has a new design for Agent Jones (top left), who appears to be wearing prison gear. Could this be a Battle Pass skin?
Fans believe Spider-Man will be included as a Battle Pass reward, while Neo from The Matrix and Boba Fett from Star Wars are both tipped to appear in the Item Shop.
Needless to say, Chapter 3 Season 1 launches with a new Battle Pass complete with over 100 rewards. That’s on top of a redesigned HUD and menu screens, as well as a slew of in-game challenges.
Express Online will publish a full list of update 19.0 patch notes when the download is available.
