Last month, Samsung unveiled its new flagship smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. In case you didn’t know, those who pre-order the Galaxy S10 Plus get an exclusive Fortnite skin modelled after K-pop star, Jung Chan-woo, who is a member of the South Korean K-pop band, iKON. There’s also a special event featuring iKON and the extremely popular Fortnite streamer, Ninja. Now, it seems like a new Fortnite map will also be shown off at the event later this month.
This special event will take place in New York on 16 March, where Ninja will join iKON for what is being called a “one-of-a-kind Fortnite x Galaxy gaming experience.” It honestly doesn’t sound very exciting except if you’re a massive Samsung fan unless of course, a new Fortnite map is being shown off.
Over on his stream, Ninja teased a new Fortnite map that will be at the event. Ninja reportedly said the following:
I’m going to be headed to New York on March 16 to play with [Jung Chanwoo from iKON]…on a brand new map exclusive to Fortnite. That’s right, a brand new map, literally built for this event.
There’s also a small little preview video of the event, but it doesn’t say or showcase anything about the new Fortnite map.

At the time of writing, we are not sure if this map will come to the live game sometime in the future, or if it will only be used at the event that one time. It does, however, feel like a little bit of a waste to just use the map once and never again.
Do you think this new Fortnite map could and should become more than just a once-off thing? What would you like to see from a new Fortnite map? Let us know in the comment section below.
