The patch 17.40 of Fortnite has brought another major change to the map. The mothership of the aliens he continues in his process of terraforming the island and adapting it to his needs. This time, they are abducting / destroying Coral Castle. We tell you everything we know about this new change on the map from Season 7 of the Battle Pass of Fortnite Chapter 2:
Fortnite: mothership destroys Coral Castle
From 11:00 a.m. CEST on Tuesday, August 17, 2021, you can witness how the alien mothership is gradually abducting and destroying Coral Castle:
In case you don’t remember where this location on the island is, we leave you a map:
The destruction of the area is divided into several phases, which will take place over the next few days.. Thanks to the EndymionFN dataminer, we can see what the area will look like once it is completely destroyed:
However, the entire area affected by the mothership’s huge tractor beam has been converted into a low gravity zone. That is, our jumps are higher, we take longer to fall to the ground, and we do not take fall damage.
In addition to this, the OI, the Imagined Order, the faction that openly confronts invading aliens, has set up various checkpoints around Coral Castle.
Last but not least, the minions of SHADOW and SPECTRUM (who are already skins in the game) They are also studying the area.
The next areas to be abducted / destroyed after Coral Castle would be Complejo Corriente. We know this thanks to files that were added to the Fortnite filesystem with patch 17.21.
In Meristation we will be pending before any possible change or novelty that could be in this regard.
