Fortnite Season 5 Teaser Is Axe-ing You a Question

Fortnite Season 5 Teaser Is Axe-ing You a Question

The next Fortnite Season 5 teaser is here.

Fortnite Season 5 is coming this Thursday, July 12, and Epic Games is teasing up a storm. Yes, other than the storm at the edge of the map. Yesterday's teaser was a mysterious mask that players couldn't decide if it was Japanese kitsune or the Egyptian goddess Bastet. Today, it's… an axe.

It is a decidedly Viking-looking axe, though I'm not a historian, so don't hold me to it. It just looks a whole lot like the Leviathan Axe, Kratos' primary weapon in the new God of War. It's likely a new pickaxe that players can pick up in-game.

Many players already believe that Epic Games is hinting at something time-travel based for the next season. The detective noir skin, the new detective office, the ancient mask, and now this axe; it's all starting to add up. Time travel would allow Epic Games to be a bit more free-wheeling with its skins and items.

We'll see what happens as we continue the march to Season 5's opening on July 12.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
