Fortnite Chapter 5 Map Has Reportedly Already Leaked Online

It is codenamed "Helios."

Story Highlights

  • The Fortnite Chapter 5 map codenamed Helios has surfaced online, revealing the basic terrain and structure in the process.
  • The unfinished map image does not confirm anything else about the next chapter and remains vague.
  • The leak has caused fans to create various theories and wonder about the final design. We suggest taking it with a grain of salt.

Fortnite has once again brought a wave of bustle among the fans with a new map leak. A credible leaker has taken to Twitter to share the image of an unfinished map that is supposed to appear in Chapter 5 of the game. Codenamed Helios, the map reveals the basic terrain and all the generic features we can expect but does not reveal any explicit details about the significant locations.

The image was initially discovered by the user ImPeQu and shared by the accredited dataminer and insider HYPEX on Twitter. 

The codename Helios actually appears to serve a purpose for the map. The naming convention has kept up with the past map names in the previous Fortnite chapters. These names represent the gods from Greek mythology, with Helios being the name for Titan, the personification of the Sun. The previous names have also followed a similar convention, but it remains unclear whether it serves another purpose. 

Besides the codename choice, there is not much to examine on the newly leaked Fortnite map. It reveals the rough terrain from a top-down view, but everything else is missing. The unfinished map has riled up the anticipated community and caused many to wonder about all that Chapter 5 will bring when it comes out.

While it is unlikely for the unfinished map image to be fake, we still suggest taking the rumors with the right amount of salt. The skeletal structure of the map still remains to be populated by all the structures. Moreover, things are subject to change. Epic Games could decide to revamp the entire terrain before the Fortnite Chapter 5 drops in the near future. 

Fortnite has been in its stride lately, with each new update effectively bringing new and unique content that makes for great replayability. To put things into perspective, the return of the OG map and other factors caused the title to amass 5.8 million concurrent players a few days ago.
