Developers Epic Games have revealed the first official look at Fortnite Chapter 2’s fourth season. In addition to a new teaser on social media, a rift has opened up in-game. 

Fortnite fans have become entirely accustomed to the game’s biggest updates coming with the inception of new seasons, and Season 4 of Chapter 2 is no different.

Details have been scarce, but leaked images and in-game teasers suggested that another Marvel crossover was in the works. That proved true with Epic’s first official reveal released on August 21, confirming that a Marvel crossover with Thor at the center will be coming to Fortnite.

Thor has long been rumored to be on his way to Fortnite.

Despite the fact that Chris Hemsworth’s portrayal has launched the character into popular culture, the Fortnite Season 4 version looks more inspired by how the Norse God appears in the comic books.

On August 22, a follow-up teaser was released. What’s also unclear (for now, at least) is the caption that accompanied the teaser. It reads: “The Herald has found The Island. The prelude to War has begun. Experience Part 1 in-game now…”

The ‘Herald’, many assumed, refers to Thor. He is also known as the “Herald of Thunder’ in the Marvel universe. What kind of war is being referred to though, is not yet clear.

Another change is that in-game, a large rift has opened up above the map. This is not the first time Fortnite has used rifts or other dimensions to introduce new Seasons, but it appears that Thor and Galactus will be making their way to the existing map, rather than the existing characters departing their current location.

Popular leaker ShiinaBR also pointed out that another page in the comic book that originally leaked Thor is now available to view in-game.

While other characters have not yet been confirmed, past leaks have indicated that both Galactus and Thor will be making their way to Fortnite, alongside Asgard’s infamous Rainbow Bridge.

It has been proven once again that Epic love to tease the Fortnite fan-base over major changes the game will experience. For now, though, details remain in short supply, but keep your eyes peeled for in-game hints.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
