Everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3

Fortnite Chapter 2 concluded with “The End” on Saturday, December 4 at 4 pm ET, which means that Fortnite Chapter 3 will soon be upon us. 

That means a whole new string of seasons, events, skins, and probably more marketing collaborations and crossovers than you can shake a pickaxe at. We’ve combed through all the Fortnite Chapter 3 leaks, data miners’ latest discoveries, and official teasers to figure out just what to expect.

When does Fortnite Chapter 3 start?

Fortnite Chapter 3 is expected to start after downtime following The End event on December 4. 

When Chapter 2 arrived, Fortnite became a black hole for a day after a series of dimension-shattering rocket launches sucked everything into oblivion. This is more or less a cheeky way of performing huge amounts of maintenance, which is obviously needed when shifting to a brand new map, updating game features, and whatever else Epic is planning. Following the finale of Chapter 2, players were left floating in the ocean.

Watch the Chapter 2 finale

As fans predicted, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made his debut during The End. You can watch the full Chapter 2 finale above.

Fortnite Chapter 3 leaks and teasers

It wouldn’t be Fortnite without plenty of leaks. There’s already a few major teasers that have dropped unexpectedly, pointing to what we might see change in Chapter 3.  

First up was a new video posted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Normally, Mr. Rock posts on his Instagram about his workout routine and his brand of energy drinks, but during a recent video he grabbed a can out of his gym’s mini-fridge, revealing the Foundation’s helmet.

The Foundation was the Iron Man-esque character who teamed up with Agent Jones to save the Fortnite island from a dimensional calamity way back in season 5. Since then, the Foundation has been trying to make his way back to finish his business. Basically, his whole deal is that he wants to stop the time loop that’s powering Fortnite’s weird battle royale world.

Players had been convinced for a while that The Rock is the Foundation. The post’s accompanying text and Rock’s speech included a few references to Fortnite: “Zero Point, Higher Ground, Foundation.”

Funny enough, the person filming the video also occasionally flipped the camera upside down, which leads us into our next leak.

An ad for Fortnite Chapter 3 leaked on TikTok. It shows scenes we’d see during the end of Chapter 2—like the island flipping onto its backside to reveal a brand new map.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 battle pass leak

It would be weird for Fortnite to not include a battle pass for the inaugural season of Chapter 3, so of course they’ve got one ready. The official Polish Fortnite YouTube channel jumped the gun and posted its trailer early, and although it was quickly taken down players had already saved copies. It’s since been uploaded to Twitter.

Yep, those are Spider-Man skins, as well as characters from Gears of War—Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz. Looks like the Foundation will be available as a skin as well.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will have its US release on December 17, which makes it an obvious tie-in. As well as the skins it seems like the Spider-Man theming will include a Daily Bugle location, spiderwebs connecting buildings together, and a web-swinging mechanic. Which leads us into…

Fortnite Chapter 3 gameplay changes

As well as web-swinging, that leaked trailed shows characters sliding downhill, as they did during the Chapter 2 finale. So that’s at least two new movement mechanics coming in Chapter 3. There’s also a campsite, where players can apparently heal up and store items between matches.

Oh, and it seems like trees fall down instead of disappearing when they get chopped down. So that’s nice.
