Part of Fortnite Chapter 2's massive finale has leaked online, showing what will happen to the island and teasing the appearance of a new island entirely.

The Fortnite Chapter 2 finale, "The End," is scheduled to take place Saturday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. ET. Epic Games says players will take on The Cube Queen in a desperate last attempt to save the island. But a TikTok user and Fortnite leaker says they mistakenly received an ad for the event that shows how things turn out at the end of that fight. (Spoilers ahead.)

The ad, screen-recorded by TikTok user freddythefox_YT, opens with some Fortnite characters climbing a mountain on the Chapter 2 island. When they reach the summit, a huge blue explosion goes off overhead. In the ensuing chaos Jonesy is launched into water. He surfaces to find himself in a kind of cosmic ocean. He watches as the Chapter 2 island flips over, revealing an entirely new topography on the other side — likely the new island players will explore in Chapter 3.

It's unclear if this ad was meant to go out as early as it did, and Epic Games hasn't confirmed the ad's legitimacy, but it's hard to imagine it not being real based on the level of polish.

Despite Chapter 2's scheduled end soon approaching, Epic Games has yet to announce a start date for Chapter 3, leaving open the possibility of a temporary Fortnite outage a la the black hole from Chapter 1's end.
