share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

As we look forward to Fortnite Season 3 - which starts in just a few hours - there weren't too many leaks we could turn to, until now. Content for the new season - and more importantly, the Battle Pass - has stayed relatively well hidden and this latest development changes that.

There are still plenty of rumblings and rumours as to what content will be coming in the Season 3 Battle Pass.

New Leak is REAL

It appears that someone has taken it upon themselves to 'leak' the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass. Despite initially being called out as fake - including by ourselves - it appears the image may be real and confirmed as such by @TaborTimeTY.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Leaks

So far, the only leak of substance appears to be that of Darth Vader. Apparently, he's been waiting to arrive in Fortnite for some time and the Season 3 Battle Pass is when he'll finally debut.

We half expected him to arrive during the May 4th event but this didn't come to fruition. There is also the possibility that he just arrives in a standard bundle just like Obi-Wan Kenobi did.

Other leaks suggest that the Marvel theme could continue for one more season but no names are being thrown around beyond this. In recent seasons we've had Spider-Man, Venom, Carnage, Rogue, Gambit & Doctor Strange all become available in one form or another.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Release Date

The Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass should release day and date with the new season. This means you can expect it to arrive on Saturday, 4 June at the earliest.

As is the case with any new Battle Pass, you will be able to purchase it with V-Bucks as soon as the season is live. If you are part of the Fortnite Crew, the Battle Pass will be automatically gifted to you once the season starts.

Be sure to check when exactly Fortnite Season 3 starts, however, as there is no official date just yet, we are simply going on the fact that the final day of Season 2 is Friday, 3 June.
