Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 has been an exciting ride with the addition of Mega City to the Battle Royale island as part of an all-new Japan-inspired biome, along with the Kinetic Blade which has been vaulted. However, the season is coming to an end, and soon it will be summer–and time for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. Discover everything we know so far about Fortnite’s latest summer season.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 Begin?
According to in-game messaging, the current season will end on June 9 at 11 PM PT / 2 AM ET, which indicates that there won’t be a live event this season. If history repeats itself, and Season 3 begins the same way Season 2 did, then the game will only be offline for a few hours–meaning that Season 3 should begin sometime in the early morning of June 9.
Although Epic Games has not yet made any announcements about the upcoming season, we have seen one significant leak. The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3’s key art teases a Transformers crossover, which should excite many fans of the series.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 Key Art Teases Transformers Crossover
The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3’s key art is causing a lot of speculation and excitement among the fans. The full key art depicts Optimus Prime, the Transformer, which implies that he may be included in the battle pass. The specific details are currently unknown, but we can assume that the Optimus Prime skin will have a built-in transformation emote.
The key art heavily suggests that the upcoming season will feature a jungle theme along with the reintroduction of raptors. If Fortnite is indeed collaborating with Transformers, then a new primal-like season would make sense. However, judging by the “18th century shipwreck victim” look of the guy in the center of the key art, not to mention the old-timey pistol he’s holding, we could also be looking at a pirate-themed season.
Will We Actually Be Able to Ride Raptors?
Fortnite added rideable animals (wolves and boars) to Battle Royale back in Chapter 3, which means we can assume that the raptors depicted in the key art will also be rideable. Along with being rideable, they may follow the player around to help fight opponents when they’re on foot, too.
What Skins will be in Fortnite’s Chapter 4 Season 3 Battle Pass?
If the key art is anything to go by, then all four skins shown will be part of the new battle pass, including brand new original characters. Optimus Prime will be a part of this season, along with a new summer version of the Meowscles skin surfing that vine in the back. The bonus slot on this battle pass will go to an original skin rather than a collaboration.
What New Weapons are Coming in Chapter 4 Season 3?
HypeX has announced some significant changes to the Battle Royale arsenal, including a new bolt-action sniper with a thermal scope, “Lever Pistol,” and a new mythic drum shotgun. Helicopters have also reportedly been updated with a grenade or rocket launcher, which suggests they may make an appearance in this season.
What Should We Expect from Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 Outside of Battle Royale?
We have heard rumors that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 will feature a new limited-time mode (LTM) that will be a racing game similar to Mario Kart. There is speculation that it will have its own battle pass and may be a proper part of the Fortnite Crew, or it could be more like the Star Wars Find the Force event with its mini-pass that had a premium track that you had to pay for.
In conclusion, we can expect that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 will take us on an adventure with its jungle theme, rideable raptors, and exciting new weapons. Stay tuned for the official release and enjoy the upcoming season!
