Is Midas returning to Fortnite’s story?
The Henchmen Bundle is back in Fortnite’s Store, and while that may mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, it may also hint at the fact that one of their bosses, Midas, is returning to the game. Don’t believe me? Well, there is one huge element to the game that seems to hint at such an event happening.
After you helped The Seven Recruits take over the Daily Bugle, and sunk the airship that was hovering overhead, the flags started to be changed at the point of interest. If you looked close, they aren’t the flags of the Imagined Order, who you just kicked out, or the flags of The Seven.
Now, they’re the flags that belong to Midas, the head of the SHADOW and G.H.O.S.T. organizations. Seeing Midas’ flag, aka the flag of the G.H.O.S.T. faction riding high over the Daily Bugle and eventually Condo Canyon, really seems to suggest that Midas is coming back in the storyline.
Seeing how his henchmen are back as well, at least in the store, it seems to suggest this is not only possible but inevitable.
Understanding the history of Midas and G.H.O.S.T.
Midas led G.H.O.S.T., a spy agency that is seen in the lore of Fortnite as being “the good spy faction”. They wear mostly white and battled it out with SHADOW, the “bad spy faction” of Fortnite. Midas would betray G.H.O.S.T. however and then create and run SHADOW.
The two sides would engage in a war but by the end of Chapter 2, the war had ended with no real winner being revealed, though G.H.O.S.T. would all but disappear after that. Midas would appear to die during the events of Chapter 2 but remnants of him are being spotted all over the island. Not just that but items belonging to several of his loyalist soldiers are being spotted in the vents of various Imagined Order bases.
Seemingly suggesting that G.H.O.S.T. is waging a hidden war against the Imagined Order.
If that’s true, a new version of Midas may be popping up very soon and who knows what that means for the island.
