Fortnite Season 11 Map Changes | Is the new map bigger?

For better or for worse, Epic Games has decided to shake things up rather dramatically with Fortnite Season 11. Following the exciting, but confusing, black hole event, we now have a brand-new Fortnite map to discover. There have been tonnes of Fortnite Season 11 map changes. In this guide, we’ll take you on a whistle-stop tour of the new map, running you through the new Fortnite map Named Locations as well as letting you know the answer to “is the new Fortnite map bigger?” It’s time to re-learn the Fortnite map, folks.

Fortnite Season 11 Map Changes | Is the new Fortnite map bigger?

When you boot up Fortnite Chapter two for the first time, you will immediately notice that the map has changed. It’s now called Apollo, for example. It almost looks as if it is bigger than the original map. Its shape has certainly changed a lot, anyway. Ultimately, however, it is difficult to tell if the new map is actually bigger than the old one or not. Without official word from Epic Games on its size, we won’t know for certain. We’d argue, however, that it is at least of similar size.

We’ve overlayed the two maps in the gif you can see above. As you can see, they look to be a somewhat similar size. There are some differences, however. The original Fortnite map was made up of 10×10 squares. Season 11’s map, meanwhile, is 8×8. The squares in the new map, though, do look bigger than on the previous one. One thing’s for sure, though, that a few of the Named Locations this time around are huge. The map feels more open, despite it being dense with locations and landmarks.

The size of the map notwithstanding, you will definitely want to know what all of the new Named Locations are. In total, there are 13 Named Locations to discover on the Fortnite Season 11 map. By discover them, we truly do mean discover. When you begin your Fortnite Chapter two adventure, the entire map will be greyed out. You will need to head to where the question marks are on the map in order to discover the Named Locations and fill the map in. We’ve discovered all of the Named Locations, however, and have listed them below for you:

  • Craggy Cliffs
