It looks like a spaceship crash site is the next new location for Fortnite chapter 2 season 3 (opens in new tab).

Fortnite dataminers have dug up information on the new point of interest, which appears to be a spaceship that matches the Ancient Voyager gear set. According to these images from FortTory, the ship will appear just off the coast of the island once the water level recedes more.

Better still, the ship appears to still be occupied by its pilot - you can see them sitting calmly at the controls in this second image.

Hypex (opens in new tab), another seasoned Fortnite leaker, dug up this outfit that appears to match the astronaut seated at the controls of the ship.

It looks like the new ship crash location will come with a new set of challenges to complete. FortTory found a set of challenges that include finding the ship, collecting and installing a missing piece, then starting its launch sequence - though it looks like there's also a challenge to stop the launch.

The latest Fortnite season has been marked by the steady reappearance of familiar map points as the waters recede, along with some new and unexpected additions. The Fortnite Aquaman challenges (opens in new tab) hit the game last week after a lengthy lead up, finally giving players the opportunity to unlock the Atlantean hero. Now as we approach the halfway point in the current season, players are already looking ahead to what's next for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 (opens in new tab).

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
