INITIAL LEAKS & TEASERS - Gears of War collab
On December 4th, the Fortnite Poland YouTube account accidentally leaked the Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer. In doing so, they gave so much information on what we can expect to see.
Although we know it won't be in the battle pass, we saw Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz. It seems to be the case that we will see them in the item store at some point in the future.
Alongside this, leakers found a Gears of War Quest Bundle in the game files called "Delta-One". The Delta-One is a squad in Gears of War involving the central crew from the first game and other characters as they continued to grow.
Some players were worried seeing that Dom, Col and Santiago weren't there but maybe this bundle comes with them all at a discounted price. Only time will tell if this happens.
