A new Fortnite Season 6 gameplay feature has possibly leaked. Season 6 of the free-to-play Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and mobile game is on the horizon, and many fans are wondering what Epic Games has up its sleeve. As always, the rumors and leaks range from exciting to downright preposterous. And of course, the theories include everything from a return to the original map to crazy crossovers. That said, one of the more grounded Season 6 leaks involves some unfinished AI spawner capabilities for vehicles that were added to the files of the game with a recent update.
In layman's terms, this may mean that we could see NPCs controlling vehicles with the new season, or some type of "boss" vehicles that attack and harass players. For now, these are just theories based on the files, but as Fortnite dataminer "Mang0e" points out, there are not many other explanations for these new files
Some unfinished AI spawner capabilities for vehicles were added in 15.40.
What could this mean? A couple of "loose" guesses:— Mang0e | Fortnite Dataminer (@Mang0e_) February 23, 2021
- NPC's/Bots/Bosses could control vehicles in the future
- There might be a vehicle that attacks players, like a "boss" vehicle (ex. helicopter in Rust) pic.twitter.com/oHWHGp0sZx
For now, it's difficult to know what should be made of these files, and unfortunately, Epic Games isn't going to provide any type of clarification as it does not comment on leaks.
For now, take all of this speculation with a grain of salt, because right now, everything here ranges from unofficial to purely speculative. Further, even if one of the above two theories is accurate, there's no concrete indication that any of this will be ready for the launch of Season 6.
