Fortnite‘s dimensional rifts have created an insane amount of chaos in and out of the game, with landmarks such as Greasy Grove’s Durr Burger appearing in California and real-life loot llamas popping up in Europe. Moreover, in-game additions include a Viking anchor and horse-drawn carriage, with the latest discovery being an animal skeleton.
Fittingly set in Moisty Mire, the animal skeleton (see below) is only the latest discovery in the buildup to Fortnite season 5. Like its predecessors, the exact connection of the items to the location (which could simply be random) has yet to be revealed; however, the widespread time period of the spawning items seemingly support longstanding ideas about season 5’s theme.
Notably, exactly what type of animal remains that appeared in Moisty Mire are hard to determine, but it’s possible that this bolsters theories about dinosaurs appearing in Fortnite. However, last time this theory reared its head, it went unfulfilled by the developers, so it remains up to Epic Games when or if to confirm this possibility.
Nevertheless, the rifts appearing in the game and the items appear in the real world is an excellent marketing approach by Epic Games, as many old and new players may be checking out these anomalies. If season 5 proves to be half as interesting as these rifts, then fans of the battle royale game are in for a real treat.
One thing the wide variety of items appearing in Fortnite supports, as well as a tweet by the developers this morning, is a time travel theme for season 5. If time travel does, in fact, play a major role in the upcoming season, then it seems likely this animal skeleton could very well be that of a dinosaur. Nevertheless, with only two days remaining in season 4, players can expect to see how these rifts resolve very soon.
Fortnite is available now for Nintendo Switch, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
