Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 leaks suggest that Epic Games could be removing two big features (at least temporarily) from the game.

Fortnite is known to shake up the game with whacky ideas and innovative mechanics. Let’s look at what to expect from Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 Leaks
Reports initially suggested that Epic Games was planning to remove Zero Build Mode from Fortnite. The popular battle royale was known for adding the building twist to battle royale before it decided to retire the feature for a few seasons. Leaks suggested that the Zero Build Mode, which lets players focus solely on gunplay, will be removed. However, leaker HYPEX has tweeted out that Zero build is in fact staying in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5.
Maps with Zero Build will also have ziplines to help players navigate the terrain.
Fans of the original Fortnite are thrilled to see the game going back to its roots. Apart from this, HYPEX also reported that tactical sprinting and climbing could be disabled in Chapter 4 Season 5, and will return in Chapter 5.
HYPEX also suggested that the next Fortnite Season (Season 5 / Chapter 1) will have an end event with a countdown starting on 21st November, and the Season itself is set to end on 3rd December.
Lore wise, Fortnite may be going back to the basics as suggested by leaks from Fortnite leaker Shiina and the developers themselves.
Many noted that Epic changed Fortnite’s X account location to July 12, 2018.
Note that these leaks are informed speculation at the point. Epic Games is yet to confirm what exactly is coming to Fortnite in the next season. The current season of Fortnite, called Last Resort, started on 25th August and is set to last till November. Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is set to start between 2nd and 10th November 2023.
