Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 resembles the game-changing Season X in more ways than one. 

Epic Games has done a brilliant job with Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. However, that hasn't stopped gamers from finding all the clues that link the current season with Chapter 1 - Season X.

The link is further strengthened by evidence of the Seven coming to Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. A Reddit user recently mentioned how the two seasons are similar and several other fans followed it up with their theories about this similarity.

Epic Games has designed Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 in a unique way to include hunters and NPCs in the game. While this has never been done before in Fortnite, several elements in Season 5 remind gamers of Season X.

Popular content creators like SypherPK even mentioned on his video how Epic likes to leave clues relating to previous or upcoming seasons in-game. Similarly, Epic tends to hide things in plain sight to confuse the Fortnite community.

Before the season began, Epic released a story trailer that is becoming more relevant in Fortnite during 2021. For instance, a woman's voice informs Agent Jonesy that the Seven must not interfere with the events of Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. 

Similarly, there are several clues at Stealthy Stronghold that allude to the mysterious appearance of the Seven. Reddit user u/TurquoiseTheWolf posted an image that showed an upcoming in-game spray.

The spray is designed after a helmet from the Visitor in Fortnite. This coincidence aligns with the events of Fortnite Chapter 1 - Season X. The Scientist fixed things during Season X, and it looks like history might repeat itself in Fortnite.

u/_Fungooz_ mentioned in a comment that the timelines for both Fortnite Chapters do not add up. Thus, it will take Epic Games over a year to get to Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 10.

This is one of the primary reasons why Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 might resemble Season X. The theory also highlighted that Midas might return in Season 5 to take control of the Fortnite Island.

Similarly, u/umg_unreal mentioned that this similarity between the two Fortnite seasons is because of the Zero Point. Just like Season 5, the Zero Point was a pivotal narrative device in Fortnite Chapter 1 - Season X. Subsequently, gamers had to complete several missions related to the Zero Point in both seasons.

u/Typical_Nic also mentioned how numerous players would love to see the Seven return in Fortnite. The Seven have intricate knowledge about the Zero Point and the multiverse. This means that they can solve the time/space paradox and fix the Fortnite simulation. 

Considering all these leaks, gamers can draw a clear picture of what is about to come. So far, the narrative has brought forth new hunters on the Fortnite map, but the question remains, "where were they teleported from?"

Although gamers got to see a tangible portal when the Walking Dead characters were introduced, it wasn't present during Kratos or Master Chief. Similarly, the Seven are time-travel experts; they would notice Agent Jonesy teleporting warriors from different dimensions. 

Up until now, there are no clear cut antagonists in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. The only loop in the plot reveals why Agent Jonesy is stopping gamers from escaping the Fortnite reality.

During the Galactus live event, Donald Mustard teased the appearance of the Visitor on his Twitter account. This might come full circle during the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. 

With all these leaks, gamers are naturally inclined to find similarities between two of the best seasons in Fortnite. Hopefully, time will unfold all the mysteries in Fortnite, and players might finally unlock the fourth outfit from the Seven this season.
