Mount Olympus was featured during the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 live event. The statue on top of Mount Olympus charged up and prepared to hit the Pandora’s Box with lightning. This energy moved to the southern region of the island where it blew up in the water and left behind a flashing red light. This led to the formation of a sandstorm around the light which was coming from a shark-like boat.

Ruined Reels, Fencing Fields, and The Underworld are also set to be removed. All these places are different in some ways and have been the most popular landing areas for a lot of players. However, their removal also opens the opportunities for new and interesting areas that will bring new dynamics in the game.
