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.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
