Trailer

Check out the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 Trailer below for a glimpse at what's possible in the season!

And of course, check out Aquaman among other water-based features.

Battle Pass

If you want to level up your Fortnite experience, you'll want to grab a Battle Pass.

You'll start with the two starter skins, Fade and Ocean. These are upgradable and allow you to choose how they look.

You'll end on Eternal Knight, an epic female variant of the Ultima Knight from Season X.

A bunch of gliders, emotes, pickaxes and more will also be at your disposal!

Kit (a half-robot kitten), Aquaman and a mechanic called Jules are just three of the characters included in the Battle Pass.

The Fortnite Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks (£7.50 / $9.50), but with 1500 V-Bucks on offer during the Season, you can pay for next season's Battle Pass by playing!

Aquaman

Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman in the DC Universe, gave his support for his role being in the new season of Fortnite.

You can find out how to get the Aquaman skin right here!

The actor originally posted the trident teaser on his Instagram story, which has since been tweeted out by Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games Donald Mustard.

Mythic Weapons

Get in to the action and dominate the opposition with a Ocean’s Burst AR, Chug Jug and more in the latest Season.

If you're looking for the advantage, you'll want to take a look at our extensive weapons guide!

Season 3 Build-up!

From leaks, speculation, and all the live updates, keep reading to take a look at our reports on the epic build-up to the new Season.

Downtime confirmed

Looks like we could have a confirmed downtime for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3, and it looks like it's a late one!

According to Fortnite Status, downtime begins at 2 AM ET, 6AM UTC, 7AM BST.

Teasers

The dust had barely settled on the epic Device Event, before another HUGE teaser was dropped on the official Fortnite Twitter page.

More details have emerged, with a trident on show.

fortnite aquaman trident

TO THE SEAS - Aquaman's trident is set to feature

With Deadpool a promising feature of the previous season, it looks as if another superhero will appear this time around - Aquaman!

Up in space

As well as Aquaman's trident, we've also seen glimpses of an astronaut.

fornite teaser astronaut c2 s3

THE WORLD IN HIS HANDS - Instead of a helmet, this astronaut is holding a planet!

A lot of the community is hoping this is Gru from Despicable Me, but it is more likely to be the astronaut, possibly Jonesy's dad, from his office.

The Device - Fortnite Map Flooded!

There is now a huge wall of water surrounding the map, which took place during The Device Event - and it looks absolutely epic.

We will still have to wait to find out how this will affect the next season, but it does seem to tie in with an aquatic theme of sorts.

Surroundings

It appears that The Device Midas used on the Fortnite map temporarily caused the storm to disappear.

The big question is, however, will the water surrounding the map end up crashing down and submerging everything below!

We'll have to wait a little longer to find out!

Doomsday Event

The new Story of Season 3 is expected to link in with the Season 2 story of "Ghost vs Shadow".

MIDAS' DOOMSDAY PLAN - This outfit is one of the major hints at the Doomsday Event!

As of now, Shadow is winning. Popular streamers like Sypher PK have predicted that Midas will where his "Cyclo" outfit to start the device.

We can't wait to find out what Midas' plan really is, and how the recent will change the Fortnite experience!

A tweet posted by Epic Games teased the upcoming Device event, and it has Fortnite players in a frenzy of anticipation!

Event Teaser

PLAN - What could be in store for us?

From what we can tell, it appears Midas is going to try and break the storm that appears over the Fortnite map!

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 Delayed... Again

According to an update from Epic Games, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 will officially be starting Wednesday, 17 June.

SECOND DELAY - C2S3 has been pushed back once again

This second pushback comes in response to current events and their effects on the community at large, including developers and players alike.

Along with the new season being pushed back, The Device has also been delayed to Monday, 15 June.

Battle Pass 1

TOUCH OF GOLD - Who else is in love with this season's final battle pass skin>

As soon as Chapter 2 Season 2 was officially released, some clever data miners such as HYPEX and Lucas7Yoshi uncovered a specific date within the game files!

Unfortunately, over the course of the season, we found Epic had other plans and delayed Season 3 for over a month!

Chapter 2 Season 3 Leaks

Fortnite leaker 'FortTory' has found the first Season 3 Chapter 2 posters in the game's files!

It looks like we could be in for a wet one! The two posters show Meowscles semi-submerged in water, as well as a house on a rubber ring which what, looks like a Megladon shark prowling the waters!

fortnite skin chapter 2 season 3

We could have just received a HUGE leak as to what the next season of Fortnite is going to look like.

AS we know Chapter 2 bought along the swimming mechanic and the addition of boats meant that water became a crucial way of getting around the map!

This could seriously take things to the next level.

Fortnite has had plenty of important information leak before revealing. It seems like Chapter 2 Season 3 is no different.

According to leaks from Reddit user InfinityFartDev, we have a list of future inclusions for the season.

fortnite chapter 2 season 3 shark water

JAWS - Get ready for some new friends in the new season

While we always have to take leaks with a grain of salt, one of the leaks has already been confirmed by a dataminer, so it's looking promising.

The leaks suggest the theme will be water, there will be rideable sharks in-game, a collab with DC comics will mean a new Aquaman battle pass skin, there will be new game modes like skydiving challenges and boat races, and there will be a phone booth where players can change their skin in-game.

Map Leak Falsified

As we enter the final week before the new season, leaks are always going to occur.

FALSE - This is not the map for Fortnite C2S3

One that doesn't look to be accurate is a map leak found on Reddit, with the post now deleted.

However, this gives us a good idea of how the map may function if a flood were to happen.

Battle Pass? Cost?

Much like any Fortnite season, we can expect a battle pass for Chapter 2 Season 3. Inside the battle pass, we can expect a wide array of skins, emotes, pickaxes, gliders and (of course) V-bucks!

Season 2 battle pass

BANANAS! - Agent Peely reporting for duty!

So, for Fortnite Season 3 expect the same price of 950 V-bucks for the battle pass. Which equals out to around $10 USD, and players will more than likely be able to opt into the Battel Pass Bundle.

The latter will cost 2800 V-bucks and will reward you with 25 tiers of the Battle Pass to start!

New Weapons

Like any Fortnite season, this is when Epic Games tends to go all out when it comes to adding/removing weapons into the game.

Ghost

MYSTERIOUS - What kind of storylines will the two agencies have in store for us?

This season was no exception, as we now have multiple classic weapons back in the game and were surprised by the vaulting of spike traps as well.

For Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 expect much of the same when the season releases; perhaps we could see the addition of vaulted weapons such as the Infantry Rifle?

New Shotgun?

With Season 2 lasting around four months, players have grown tired of the standard shotgun meta.

SPRAY AND PRAY - The Auto-Shotgun made it very easy to gun down opponents at close range!

Most gunfights in Fortnite end up becoming a close-quarters combat fight.

This means your SMG's and Shotguns are key if you want to dominate the battlefield.

Unfortunately, there were no changes to either the Tactical or Pump shotgun in Season 2, meaning the overall feel of each gunfight never changed.

It's very likely Epic will switch this up with the possible return of the Combat or Auto Shotgun!

Theme

This season's theme is "The Agency" throughout the season you will have the choice to choose different styles for all the battle pass skins!

Team Ghost vs Team Shadow

THE AGENCY - These are some of the coolest variants we have ever seen!

We can assume that the story between these two factions is going to evolve during the season and could play an evident role within the next season.

Although it is hard to speculate the future theme for Fortnite's next season, let's take a look at all past season's themes.

  • Season 1 – Theme = NONE
  • Season 2 – Theme = Medieval
  • Season 3 -Theme = Space
  • Season 4 – Theme = Super Heroes
  • Season 5 – Theme = Worlds Collide
  • Season 6 – Theme = Halloween
  • Season 7 – Theme = Winter
  • Season 8 – Theme = Pirates
  • Season 9 – Theme = Future
  • Season X – Theme = Time
  • CH2S1 - Theme = Doppelgangers
  • CH2S2 - Theme = The Agency

Map Changes?

Chapter 2 Season 2 implemented an ample amount of map changes as there were over four new POI's added and they all have their unique traits!

Shark

THE SHARK - This is viewed as the best POI in the game now!

This is another common trend with each new Fortnite season, so expect the new season to have more map changes!

Perhaps we could see the destruction of Steamy Stacks?

As everyone has been speculating, the map is likely to flood, meaning we'll probably lose a lot of POIs at the start of next season!

Competitive? FNCS? World Cup?

There has been heavy speculation regarding the next Fortnite World Cup; last year the qualifiers started in early April during season 8 and concluded during Season 9.

WORLD CUP CHAMPION - Who will come out on top this year?

So, if the Fortnite World Cup is announced this season, expect the qualifiers to run into Chapter 2 Season 3!

Another feature Fortnite tournament has been the Fortnite Champion Series or FNCS! This has been done every season since the first World Cup, so it is unknown if it'll come back if there are qualifiers going on!

Also, keep your eye out for the weekly solo cash cups, which have become a staple for competitive Fortnite!

Season 4?

Chapter 2 Season 3 has now released. But what can we expect as we get closer to Season 4?

Well, the biggest thing that still hasn't released is drivable cars.

We can expect this to release in the next few weeks and possibly closer to the release of Season 4.

Check out our Chapter 2 Season 4 piece for all the latest news and updates!
