Season 6 has given players a lot to do and much to take in as the Fortnite story progresses.
One thing that remains a mystery is "what is the Imagined Order (IO), and what exactly do they look like?" Though these may just be people in suits like Agent John Jones, Fortnite might gear them up for the battle royale like before.
HYPEX on Twitter is one of the first to bring up how we may be seeing some new Imagined Order guards.
Imagined Order guards coming to Fortnite
The Imagined Order has been in the game once before in Chapter 2 Season 5. These guards were part of a challenge where players had to shake them down to complete it. This time around, it seems like Fortnite will be getting new IO guards and skins.
Coming from HYPEX, there are talks about a cosmetic set being added from the recent v16.10 update. If true, players can expect a new look for the IO guards and even new in-game NPCs. Plus, this could mean updates to the item shops, where players can then purchase new skins.
The IO has been pretty quiet since Season 6’s launch, so this could be the start of the next part of the storyline. Hopefully, they will be new original skins.
However, there are some players who are torn about the possible leak, as April Fools is coming up. A few players believe it could be a Fortnite prank pulled by Epic Games just to poke fun at its community. But for now, we’d have to wait and see what comes out in the item shop for April 1st, 2021.
