Some new artwork has been revealed during Fortnite Season 7, which seems to showcase a brand-new open-world playlist that might be coming to the game soon.

Epic Games try to keep the Fortnite meta fresh by introducing brand-new content and changes like a crafting systemtamable wild animals, and in-game events such as the Ariana Grande concert.

Three months ago, some leaks emerged, which suggested that the devs plan to take the battle royale into its first open-world sandbox mode. Now, some leaked artwork may have given us a closer look at it.

Notable Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey uncovered a new limited-time mode that Epic Games secretly updated in Fortnite’s code on August 10. Through this, some brand-new artwork was leaked that may have given the community its first glimpse of this rumored game mode or spinoff.

It showcases four characters standing together as they prepare to fend off an incoming attack with different weapons. Peely wields a mystical wand, Jonesy has a sword, Fishstick has a spear and a shield, and Cuddle Team Leader uses a bow and arrow.

Upon closer inspection, you can also spot a giant monkey in the background, along with some interesting-looking temple POIs.

Many fans felt that these probably represent open-world or survival RPG modes. Until Epic Games announce something official, this image will only fuel further speculation among Fortnite fans in what would be a monumental addition to one of the most popular games in the world.

This image might be teasing the arrival of a Clash of Clans crossover or perhaps something entirely different. Hopefully, the developers will give us some more concrete information soon enough.

We might see the arrival of an open-world sandbox mode in Fortnite when Season 8 goes live. Once there are any more developments regarding this, we’ll be sure to update you.
