The next season of Fortnite will arrive soon, continuing the battle between the IO and The Seven, while adding map changes, and other new features. Epic Games is still being secretive about Chapter 3 Season 3 of Fortnite, but based on a series of teases and leaks—including some intentional ones directly from the developer itself—there’s quite a bit we do know about the upcoming season. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

When is the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 release date?

According to the in-game battle pass, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is set to end on June 3, 2022, meaning the next season is due out shortly thereafter, at an unspecified time. This release window was corroborated by Fortnite leaker HYPEX on Twitter. Since the upcoming Collision event is gearing up to begin on June 4, it’s likely that Season 3 proper will start on June 5, 2022.

Typically, Fortnite updates go live at 4 a.m. Eastern, so that’s when we can expect Season 3 to begin on the morning of June 5. Of course, it’s possible this date could change depending on the development process, so keep that in mind.

It’s still unclear what the upcoming Battle Pass for Season 3 will look like, but you can expect it to utilize a star system similar to before. It’ll cost 950 V-bucks, which is equal to around $8. Epic Games has yet to confirm the rewards included with the Battle Pass, but Darth Vader will supposedly make an appearance. It’s also likely that Mecha Team Leader will be featured sometime throughout the upcoming season, as Epic Games has teased the character’s inclusion.

Is there a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer?

There isn’t a Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer just yet, but it’s possible we’ll get one ahead of the June 5 launch.

What is the Fortnite Collision event?

Fortnite Season 2 will wrap up with the Collision event, which is seemingly shaping up to be an all-out war between the IO and The Seven. The event kicks off on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and serves as the big end-of-season blowout.

What are the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leaks?

Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games Donald Mustard teased more Star Wars characters on Instagram.

As part of the Unreal Engine 5 livestream, Epic Games seemingly “accidentally” revealed upcoming Fortnite skins including Darth Vader, Indiana Jones, Family Guy, and the Doomslayer. During the livestream, a screen showing various file names included the aforementioned titles for the aforementioned characters, many of which are expected to launch during Season 3.

Epic Games Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard also teased more Star Wars characters on Instagram, including Chewbacca and C-3PO with the caption “that’s no moon,” which is a reference to the Death Star. This could mean the two characters will be added to Fortnite soon.

Despite likely featuring Darth Vader, C-3PO, and Chewbacca, Season 3 will not be Star Wars-themed, at least according to leaker Tabor Hill.
