The speculation and rumors surrounding the return of the Fortnite Chapter 1 map have been reignited, thanks to the introduction of a time machine in the game. Kado Thorne, the central antagonist of the current season, has used the time machine to travel back in time, leading players to wonder if they too will have the ability to journey into the game's past.
Kado Thorne's purpose for using the time machine was to retrieve special trophies from the past, which has resulted in the inclusion of various incredible weapons in Fortnite. However, the presence of the time machine also opens up the potential for a multitude of new gameplay features.
One of the most highly anticipated features that players are hoping for is the return of the original Fortnite Chapter 1 map. Although the time machine is not currently available in the game, dataminers have discovered hints of its existence, suggesting that it will likely be released in the near future. Furthermore, speculation suggests that the time machine will be located beneath the popular named location, Eclipsed Estate.
While the time machine offers numerous possibilities, many players are particularly excited about the prospect of revisiting Fortnite Chapter 1. However, there is also a chance that Epic Games may allow players to travel even further back in time, potentially exploring the events preceding the very first season.
Considering that Chapter 5 of Fortnite is expected to be released in November or December of 2023, it is likely that we will see the time machine in action by then. Epic Games is currently working on a new Fortnite live event, and it is speculated that this event will revolve around Kado Thorne and his time machine.
The question of whether Chapter 5 will bring back Chapter 1 remains unanswered for now. Fortnite players will have to wait for the next two months to discover if they will have the opportunity to revisit the game's original map.
