Fortnite brings Season 10 to an end by sucking everything into a black hole

Sunday, October 13, 2019, marks the end of the tenth season of Fortnite, a game that took the world by storm when it first launched back in 2017 and has since then become one of the most popular games in recent history. The finale dubbed "The End" has taken Fortnite fans by surprise and the events of the day have gotten fans talking about the game and what the future holds for it.

In the culmination of the tenth season, "The End" began by having a spate of rockets flying haywire over the map in tandem with a big meteor shower which was then followed by a huge asteroid hitting the map. Subsequently, the Fortnite map and all the players in-game during the time of the live event were sucked into a rift and the entire setting was ultimately replaced with what seems like a black hole. Following these events, the game has been left unplayable.

The description of the events and the picture above seem confusing and a lot to take in so here's a video posted by the YouTuber Ali-A broadcasting "The End" to the world:

Usually, at the end of each season, the game throws some interesting events in the mix. Previously, we have had rocket launches, meteor showers, and volcanic eruptions, among others. But this season's ending has a different air of mystery surrounding it. Indeed, players have depicted their shock at last night's event:

While others are missing the game and wondering when it will return.

Epic Games, the video game company that owns Fortnite, previously confirmed that the "The End" would take place on 13 October. Interestingly, Fortnite's official twitter account has also removed all its tweets and activity bar one post, which is a live view of the black hole that is currently 'engulfing' the world of Fortnite.

The same black hole also keeps spewing out some numbers from time to time and we can't help but think, "The numbers, Mason! What do they mean?"

All in all, it is highly unlikely that Fortnite is gone for good, for obvious reasons. Many have envisaged that season 11 of the game will bring with it a new map. Forbes spotted the new rendition of the game's map on the Italian Apple App Store titled "Capitolo 2", which when translated into English, literally means "Chapter 2". So it is quite clear that Fortnite is here to stay.
