Fortnite’s anticipated Season 3 Chapter 4 finale is getting a rare misfire from Epic Games, leaving fans confused by the event. After a lobby sequence that consisted of little more than a television with a countdown, fans were understandably expecting another epic set-piece from the ground-breaking live service game.

Instead, what happened was a poorly executed Easter egg hunt. After the elimination of Fortnite Island, players were tasked with navigating a small sandbox area, completing quests to earn zero point pieces. This, over time, helped draw in familiar locations and locations that fans would be familiar with, unlocking more quests.

The loop was clearly not for everyone, though. We joined a party of three other strangers, two of whom left after about 15 minutes. We also noticed that the environment in general became less populated as time went on, suggesting that fans were getting fed up with the event. Personally, it took us several minutes to figure out what we wanted to do, and once we finally figured it out we were eager for it to be over.

The result of all this is that Fortnite Island has been revamped – type of! The event ended with a shot of the new map in the distance, and the game is now temporarily offline. We’ll bring you more information on the upcoming Chapter 4 Season 1 as we get it, but for now, we’ve got a look at The Incredible Hulk and YouTuber Mr Beast in the closing cinematic trailer. You can watch it below:

While the new season is exciting, we can’t imagine the feedback will be kind to this awkward finale!
