Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 was initially scheduled to arrive at the end of May, and now following a string of delays it has finally been revealed!

And for this Season it looks like you might need a wet suit, since the Map has been divided into a series of small continents and islands.


We're here to get you up to speed on the latest locations to emerge, so continue below for everything we've found.

Flooded Map

Standing true to a series of theories linking the latest season to a biblical flood, Fortnite's new map has been fragmented into a series of islands.

Epic has stated that the map will evolve as the season progresses, culminating with new locations emerging from the falling water level.

We're here to take you through the new locations that have emerged with Season 3, starting with the focal point of the map, The Authority.

The Authority

Taking over the Agency's previous spot in the centre of the map, the Authority is a menacing looking location.

SECURE: These impressive walls could withstand an invasion!

It basically looks like a fortified castle, with long stone walls surrounding the plot of land on all four sides.

And now it is entirely separated from the rest of the map, surrounded by a considerable stretch of water!

But getting there shouldn't be too dangerous since you'll find a helicopter landing pad on the top floor and some ziplines leading in and out in multiple locations.

Take note that the area is absolutely littered with guard NPCs, so these extraction points will be a vital part of your visit to the island.

Aquaman Skin

It’s official, Aquaman is now in Fortnite!
