Get your suncream and sandals at the ready – are we getting a Fortnite beach?

One of the big questions of Season 5 has been “what are they replacing the football stadium with?”

The stadium was added to help celebrate the World Cup and replaced the chateau; which was a great area to loot while being quiet.

However, since Season 5’s launch, there is just a blank location. If you land at Junk Junction, expect a long trek rotating to Lazy Links for more loot.

However, we might just be getting a new area there all thanks to some sand. There is loads of sand dropping from the cracks in the sky which have got us very excited that we could get a beach location.

This is backed up by the fact that several skins, emotes and gliders are beach-themed. Most importantly, there is a beach ball toy, and there isn’t really anywhere to use it.

Sand is seeping through the cracks… from FortNiteBR

The golfball toy has the golf course, and the basketball toy has the various courts across the map. So, having a volleyball net or something on a beach would make sense.

We’d fancy either Epic will add a new location, replacing the football stadium, or it will bring a change to the map, replacing the Viking theme with something else.
