Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is shaping up to be quite exciting and we’ve got all the info right from leaks about the Fallout crossover, live event, and teasers for you right here.

With Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 ultimately coming to an end on May 24, speculations have been rising about what Epic Games has in store for Fortnite’s next season. Although the key art of the next season has revealed a Fallout crossover incoming, much is still under wraps.

Chapter 5 Season 1 concluded with its Titan Hand and Earthquake event that captivated players with its near-impossible to break Pandora’s Box. Epic has now launched a similar build-up event codenamed “SuperSport” onto the Battle Royale island to lead into Chapter 5 Season 3.

Alongside the event, several leaks and teasers about the next season have started to surface. So here’s everything we know about it.

Is there a live event for Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3?

Yes, there is a mini-live event for Chapter 5 Season 3 that started on May 13, 2024, at 11 am ET / 8 am PT / 4 pm BST on the Battle Royale island itself.

The build-up event began with the Mount Olympus statue emitting blue light rays with heavy storm clouds which marked Stage 1. By the time it was Stage 3, the statue’s eyes started to glow and at Stage 5 a lightning bolt hit the structure.

In the following 3 stages, the statue raised its sword up in the air and struck a lightning bolt at the Pandora’s Box currently sunken in the Styx River by the Restored Reels POI.

At first, the statue emitted blue lightning which eventually turned red and stuck the Pandora’s Box once again which overloaded it and resulted in it being sunken deeper into the river.

Furthermore, the box burst out a glowing red element that bounced across the island and caused a blast on the horizon of the Chapter 5 Season 2 map. This further caused a Sandstorm coming towards the island from the distance.

Soon, red lightning was observed near the Sandstorm that data miners like ShiinaBR believe is speaking in Morse code, which translates to “No Hope”. Furthermore, the music played during the live event featured heavy electric guitar riffs which players thought hints toward the rumored Metallica collab coming to Fortnite Festival soon.

It is unknown exactly how long the event will last, but it is expected to carry on till Chapter 5 Season 3 begins on May 24th.

What is the next season’s theme?

The next season will feature Fallout-themed gameplay where players will be dropped into a barren wasteland of an apocalyptic era, much like the Fallout universe itself.

According to ShiinaBR, a huge sandstorm will start appearing following the live event across the Desert biome and the rest of the map. Loolo_WRLD and ImPeQu have dug deep into the game files to reveal a first look at the deep red and brown colored storm that will eventually submerge the Island.

All these actions align with the Chapter 5 Season 2 Story Quests. After Zeus was defeated, The Oracle disclosed the prophecy of the suffocating dust and clouded sky, about an incoming disaster that was drawing near. “Storm clouds gather. The Wanderer draws near.” The Oracle said.

However, theorists like DavidTheRune compiled all the hints dropped within story quests this season and revealed that The Wanderer is an unknown entity that hasn’t wandered physically but only through the mind to manipulate Zeus’ powers.

He wants to overload Pandora’s Box and release himself into the physical form which is now building an apocalyptic sandstorm. David also revealed that a symbol leaked in a new spectrogram for the upcoming season was seen on a loading screen back in Chapter 2 Season 7.

Although the theory has been deemed worthy by the player community, it’s the official Fortnite teasers that reveal crucial information about the upcoming season.

All Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 teasers explained

The official name for Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 has been revealed by the game’s official X account and it is called Wrecked.

Furthermore, Epic Games Co-Founder Mark Rein also revealed his word for the next season, “Nitro”, which players believe is going to be a substance that will alter a looper’s abilities during gameplay.

However, the official key art posted by Fortnite reveals that a Fallout crossover will arrive in the new season with an Industrial POI, Knights armor, and a Desert biome where players will experience the latest additions.

Furthermore, several content creators have received packages from Epic Games with a remote-controlled car which seems to be the upcoming vehicle in Chapter 5 Season 3. The vehicle is named Nitro and a nameplate that says “Eat Ntro” could also be spotted.

All the leaks and rumors mentioned are subject to change as more information is released.
