Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 is approaching quickly as its long summer season begins to wind down.
With a new season of Fortnite coming in September, the leaks and rumors are beginning to pour in, as they always do.
As it stands right now, it seems one rumored season theme is gaining credibility as the in-game Reality Tree continues to spread its oddly nostalgic influence.
Here’s everything we know about the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 release date, battle pass, and more.
We can always reliably infer when the next season begins thanks to the in-game battle pass menu.
Because a new season always means a new battle pass, and the game always details when the current battle pass expires, we can expect a new season to begin one day after the current battle pass expires.
For Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4, that means a new season is expected to start on September 18.
It’s also worth noting that the current Fortnite Battle Pass runs until September 17, so players have until the that day (a Saturday) to finish everything before the new season starts the very next day.
If you’re one of the many people who want to know how long until the Fortnite season ends because you’re keen to see where the story goes next, we’ve also got you covered.
Regardless, read on and we’ll tell you everything you need to know for when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 ends.
Everything you need to know about FORTNITE CHAPTER 3, SEASON 3.
Here’s what we know about the story so far.
We seen many rumors pointing to an event, though there are at least two seasons to expect something to be revealed soon.
For one, the story is ramping up rather dramatically. In the most recent Vibin’ Quests (this season’s story-centric challenges), it was revealed that several members of The Seven seem to have gone missing, with at least two of them leaving their helmets behind!
The Seven’s airtight suits are what keep them immune to the island’s time-looping properties, thus preventing “Snapshots,” or clones, being made of them, among other benefits. If their helmets have been found, it may mean they’re in danger or have even been cloned.
And if that’s the case, it’s exactly the sort of drama we may need a finale event to resolve.
Another reason to expect an event is the recent reveal that an additional game patch has been queued for release later this season.
The contents of a live event are inevitably datamined every time by the game’s restless datamining community, and recently the most prominent of those data miners, Hypex, noticed an extra patch is on the way this season.
This could be a means of Epic hiding the event details as long as it can.
It’s also worth noting that, though most events come at the end of a season, they occasionally occur at the start of a new season.
One example is the Zero Crisis Finale, which came as part of the Season 6 update in Chapter 2. It wasn’t visible to data miners until the night before the season launched, while the patch was being applied.
WILL FORTNITE CHAPTER 3 SEASON 3 HAVE A LIVE EVENT?
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ended with the traditional Fortnite live event, but before that, Chapter 3 Season 1 didn’t have a live event.
So currently, there’s no way to know for sure until closer towards the end of the season itself. The best guesses we have are based on clues and files datamined by leakers in the lead-up to the event itself.
We hope and imagine that Season 3 will end with another colossal-sized event similar to the size and scope of the Collision which ended Season 2.
Either way, we’ll have to find out closer to the time as only time will tell. So, stay tuned!
FORTNITE CHAPTER 3, SEASON 4 BATTLE PASS AND THEME.
Right now, there are two leading theories as to what the next Fortnite battle pass and season theme will be. By our estimation, one of them seems more likely than the other, but we’ll go over both of them.
One theory suggests the next season will be entirely Marvel-themed. The evidence for this is pretty simple: Chapter 2, Season 4 was an all-Marvel season, and since Epic and Marvel have some sort of multi-year deal in place, another Marvel season could happen.
So why not exactly one Chapter later?
Another theory has an alternative suggestion. It goes a little like this:
In the storyline, the Reality Tree is screwing with the island’s landscape, magically turning current regions into throwbacks to the game’s original chapter and map.
Rumors have begun to swirl that this is just a tease for more to come, and Chapter 3, Season 4 will be all about these nostalgic throwbacks to the Fortnite of a few years ago.
The season will also kick off right around the game’s fifth anniversary, too, which arguably lends more credence to the rumors.
With that in mind, a battle pass for such a season could mix in popular but reimagined characters we’ve seen before, such as Black Knight, Brite Bomber, and perhaps even ubiquitous heroes such as Jonesy and Ramirez.
This is the sort of article we’ll be updating aggressively as we learn more, and we expect that it won’t be long before the leaks really start pouring in.
