​Epic Games teased the start of Fortnite Season 5 with a cryptic tweet. In the tweet, there is a kitsune style mask, with the sky fracture covering it's eye. 

​​The lead up to Season 5 has been defined by the rocket from the Super Villain Fortress tearing open a ​massive fracture in the sky above the island. As Season 5's release loomed closer, the fracture would grow larger and cause ​rifts to open up throughout the map. The rifts altered and damaged locations, teleporting different landmarks away.


Epic Games has not revealed the significance of the face in their teaser. Players have speculated that it could possibly be a new skin to be added into the game with the initial release of skins. ​Fortnite Season 5 is officially set to begin on July 12 at 4 a.m. ET, and will go on until September 20.
