This implies Fortnite Season 3 will begin in May of 2022, which isn’t as far away as you would imagine. Season 2 will wrap up in just 11 weeks, which is a few weeks shorter than some of the recent seasons that have come before it. New battle passes, updated maps, and more can be expected soon. But what are the specifics of the upcoming Fortnite campaign? Information’s a lot, but most of it comes from leaks and rumors that are at least somewhat reliable. Here’s all we know about Season 3 of Fortnite so far.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 Start Date
Although Epic has yet to release a start date for Fortnite Season 3, we can safely assume that it will arrive at some point soon. The active dates for the current battle pass may be found in small text at the bottom of the screen in the game’s battle pass interface. There will be no more Battle Passes available after the season’s end. That day is the 3rd of June in this situation. That means the third season of Fortnite will begin on Saturday, June 4th.
However, there are a few limitations to this expectation. A season’s conclusion can be altered at any time, as Epic Games learned during the COVID–19 pandemic in 2020 when they had to adapt to the new work-from-home workflow. Epic has left the door open for the potential of a later end date until it makes a formal announcement to that effect.
Other options include a lengthy break between seasons. Fortnite Season 2 could go offline on June 3 and not have a brand-new season to hop into straight away the following day if a story or technical reasons necessitate a longer period of downtime. Fortnite’s previous seasons have concluded on Saturdays and opened on Sundays, so this new season appears to be opening on a different day of the week, but possibly an even better one for the millions of players who prefer not to be concerned about school or work the next day.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 Battle pass: Darth Vader And Indiana Jones?
Several reliable reports indicate that the upcoming combat pass will be a significant one. Fortnite battle passes have included licensed characters for years, and the pattern seems to continue in Season 3 with one of the most requested: Darth Vader.
In addition to the Sith Lord, the dependable Tabor Hill aka TaborTimeYT has confirmed that Indiana Jones will make an appearance in Season 3. Fortnite has a history of including licensed characters in its battle pass, and while Hill didn’t say whether or not either or both of these characters would be included (they could just be sold in the Item Shop, after all), we’d bet that at least one of these characters will be unlockable with the Season 3 Battle Pass.
We’ve also seen six of the seven heroes from The Seven appear in the game, with nearly all of them being obtained through battle passes. If The Order (The Imagined’s sister) is included in Fortnite’s Season 3 battle pass, she would be a great addition to that roster.
Battle passes almost always include Epic-made unique characters, although one notable exception is Marvel Chapter 2, Season 4’s all-Marvel battle pass, which is unlikely to have any of these characters. Each season brings new heroes (and villains) to the Fortnite universe, thanks to characters like Peely, Jules, Fabio Sparklemane, and the likes who have previously been featured in the game.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 Finale Event
Is there going to be a Fortnite grand finale? Right now, it’s difficult to tell, although the plot does appear to be moving in that direction. The Seven-led Resistance has been working to spy on and maybe sabotage the Doomsday Device of the Imagined Order during several of Season 2’s narrative-centric Resistance tasks. To prevent The Seven’s conquest of the island, the IO may employ this gadget as a last-ditch measure.
Resistance and The Seven have been forcing the IO out of every pocket of the map for weeks, and we know through leaks that the Io will eventually be driven into just a small zone on the map, which may cause the group to behave like an animal with its back against the wall. If this Doomsday Device is used by the IO, what does it accomplish? Moreover, how can The Seven deactivate it before it’s too late? Season 2’s grand finale would be a great place to address all of these issues.
This page will be updated with any new information on Fortnite: Chapter 3, Season 3 as it becomes available. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the island is once again descending into chaos.
