Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7 has a host of brand new weapons and collaborations--and a reconfigured map.

With the launch of Chapter 2: Season 7 and the accompanying alien invasion comes a new Fortnite Island. As veteran players are no doubt used to by now, each new season of Fortnite almost completely guarantees a shift to the layout of the Fortnite Island map. Everything a name change to as a new biome is on the table when it comes to reworking the terrain. Not only do these changes keep things exciting and fresh, but they also allow players to immerse themselves more easily in the goings-on of the story.

Here's a full overview of the new Fortnite Island in Season 7.

Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7 New Map Breakdown

It goes without saying that the most noticeable change to the map is the distinct lack of orange. Thanks to the destruction of the Zero Point, players will no longer have to worry about other dimensions bleeding out through the heart of the Island. With the Spire gone from the center so, too, goes the "Primal" orange grasslands of Season 6.

That doesn't mean the island is completely verdant again. A strange pool of water now rests where the Spire sat before. Additionally, certain spots are cast in a sort of indigo-violet scheme—including around the edges of the aforementioned pool and in the empty spaces between some of the island's largest settlements. Does this have to do with the Trespassing invaders? We encourage players to check it out for themselves.

Other than those two major tweaks, players can expect a return to form for the island's named regions. Boney Burbs has taken up residence in the un-orange-d plains between Weeping Woods and Pleasant Parks--directly west of center.

Sweaty Sands has been transformed into Believer Beach and Colossal Crops is now Corny Complex. Fortunately, the functions of these places have remained the same. Believer Beach is still a seaside hideaway and Corny Complex still features farm structures and crops.
