On the other hand, the developers pulled a sneaky love move towards the community and its members. When designing the new upcoming map, the team apparently took to heart the suggestion of one reddit fan regarding a new area/biome with a spooky ruins theme. Named Haunted Hills, the suggested area is to include two castles linked by a bridge, though it's unclear at this time if anything but the name got added to the game.
Spooky ruins are nothing new to Fortnite, featuring promiscuously in the filled-with-lovely-robots PvE coop mode "Save the World". It remains to be seen how much of the fan's idea will be present in the final interaction. We'll update this story as soon as we know.
