While epic games don't have so much new in the Island 17.00, they still have some tweaks and changes in efforts to make the Game Feel Fresh. Let's take a look;

Believer Beach

Believe Beach, previously known as Sweaty Sand as its name has been changed with the latest release, appears to have murals of the aliens on walls, crop-circle like images on the sand, and some more minor decoration changes.

Corny Complex

Corny Complex, previous known as Colossal Corps also haven't got any major hauls, but some minor Tweaks can still be seen. The outer STRUCTURE is pretty much the same, but the inside of it is a bit renovated based on the new Alien theme of Fortnite Season 7.

Alien Spaceship

After waiting for a long time, and going through various leaks, aliens have finally invaded the island. Still, you won't be seeing any building or POI's of them, but a Large Alien Ship is there floating in the sky.

Alien spacecraft will land on the ground at some point in season 7, hopefully, we'll get to discover the mysteries inside it.

That's it for the Map changes, we'll update this article as soon as we'll get any new Map change news as players start to dive onto the island for the first time.
