There are still plenty of secret new areas that have been added into the new official map, most of which serve as Easter eggs for fans to find. But the new map may also serve another purpose this week, following news of what is coming in the next Fortnite update.
A new patch is expected to drop later this week, possibly on Tuesday, March 5 on all platforms. This is likely to be a content update, and will not need downtime unless otherwise stated by Epic Games.
And it also looks like it will include a new Treasure Map mechanic for fans to use across the island too. The in-game news feed has confirmed that this new item will be part of update 8.01, offering a brief description.
