Fortnite is Teasing Something Ruinous

Fortnite is Teasing Something Ruinous

Nothing more ominous than a pair of glowing orange eyes.

Epic has released a brand new teaser for something Battle Royale-related. Trouble is, no one really knows what the teaser is for.

"Ruin is coming..." reads the tweet, as you can see below. From the image with the pair of large glowing eyes, it definitely does seem like this could be a tease for a brand new Fortnite skin. The new lava-themed skins that are available to purchase in Fortnite Battle Royale right now have yellow glowing eyes, as they're themed around the hot fiery lava.

Over on the official Fortnite subreddit, everyone seems to think it points towards a new skin. As the Reddit user below points out, when the brightness for the image is dialed way up, it sure does look like a new Infinity Blade-related outfit. Alternatively, some are speculating that it could be a fifth, new style for the Prisoner skin, one of the more popular outfits currently in Fortnite.

But, as of right now, no one can really be sure what the teaser is all about. What do you make of the new Ruin teaser? Let us know in the comments below.
