Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 – Overview, Theme and Battle Pass Explained

Fortnite Chapter 2 Saison 3 keeps getting closer. Not only is the season dominated by a new themebut you also win with the Battle pass more unique rewards.

Epic usually tries to release information bit by bit, but apparently a lot has already been “disclosed”. On this page you can read everything we know about the new season.

If you are new to Fortnite Battle Royale, we recommend that you read our Fortnite tips and advice.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3, release date and start time explained. When will the new season be released?

Season 2 was originally scheduled to end on April 30, but the corona crisis likely altered those plans. The season was eventually extended by four weeks, so Season 3 begins a bit later.

According to Epic Games, the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 releases Thursday, June 4.

An exact time has yet to be announced, but it’s usually shortly after the end of the previous season. This means that the servers are first taken offline and server maintenance takes place. It usually starts at a fixed time, namely:

  • Benelux / Europe: 10 am (CEST)
  • UK: 9:00 a.m. (GMT)
  • US East Coast: 4:00 a.m. (EDT)
  • US West Coast: 01:00 (PDT)

As with any new season, all of the Season 2 challenges will be gone, so if you still have any Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 challenges, you must complete them by June 3.

What can you expect during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3? Will there be a flood?

Traditionally, Epic Games never reveal what the next season is all about. The developer gives in-game clues at the end of the current season.

You may have noticed that the No Sweat Insurance building in Lazy Lake has posters well hidden. The three posters are all devoted to water. The first poster shows a Shark and Peely in the water, the second poster shows Meowscles with hip armbands in the water, and the third poster shows a house floating on the water.

These clues could indicate that the flood map in chapter 2 of season 3. This matches an earlier video by YouTuber Tabor Hill. He claims the Season 3 menu is largely covered in water. A new means of transport could also be introduced, namely a “steerable shark”. These statements are very similar to thematic posters.

Apparently there are also puddles all over the map. Players see this as a prelude to a possible flood. As of this writing, a countdown to a major new event has started in Fornite. The clock is counting down to Saturday May 30 at 8:05 p.m.

Additionally, the loading screen with the image below has been replaced. It shows Midas with a mysterious helmet. There is also another unknown figure in the reflection of the glass. The helmet is probably part of the leaked Cyclo outfit.

This costume probably plays an important role in Chapter 2 of Season 3. According to the leak, the outfit is labeled « Defy the Storm » and the accompanying cape « Wherever the Wind Blows. » This would indicate that the combination is very powerful. Cyclo therefore has similarities to the strange device in Midas’ chamber.

If the flood rumors are true, it’s likely Midas and the suit are responsible. We have to wait until June 4 to find out.

Fortnite is currently all about Batman. Have you already found all the Fortnite Bat Signal locations? And do you know how to defuse Fortnite Joker gas cartridges?

It’s clear that a new Battle Pass for Season 3 is coming. Nothing has been announced on the content yet, but more importantly, expect new skins, picks, sprays, emotes and so on.
