We've got all the details about Fortnite Flipped and what that means for the new island map.

Epic Games decided to reveal the new island map for Fortnite Chapter 3 in an immersive, interactive way. With their "Fortnite Flipped" initiative, the company relied on Fortnite fans and the prevalence of their presence on social media to reveal the brand new playground for Loopers far and wide.

Here's everything you need to know about Fortnite Flipped and its moment in the spotlight.

Fortnite Flipped Hashtag Explained

Epic Games decided to use a special hashtag and fan engagement to help both build hype and show the reveal of the flipped map heading into Fortnite Chapter 3.

Essentially, those who wanted to see the map uncovered were required to publish a tweet using the hashtag "#FortniteFlipped." Those who participated would get an image of their profile picture flipped to symbolically represent the flipping of the literal Fortnite Island at the end of Chapter 2. Additionally, every tagged tweet contributed toward unveiling the new map—of which the progress could be tracked at the new Flip The Island webpage.

At the time of writing, the full map has been revealed, showcasing an island that has nearly 2/3 of the entire surface area covered in snow. Those who aren't partial to wintery weather shouldn't worry, however. According to a news post published on the official Fortnite news page, the island will thaw over the course of the story, revealing a lush, green landscape underneath.
