Fortnite leakers have revealed an early look at different statistics for the upcoming cars, which are expected to be released in Season 3.

There have been plenty of vehicles made available in the past Fortnite seasons, such as the Golf Carts, Quadcrashers, and the new Choppas that were added on March 17.

However, it finally looks as if modern cars will be the next mode of transport available in Fortnite after prominent leakers revealed stats for each of the new vehicles coming soon.

Fortnite has introduced many different vehicles in previous seasons.

Cars have been scattered around the Fortnite map since the game first launched in September 2017, although they were previously used as a source of metal materials instead of for getting around the safe zone.

Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that they would no longer be sitting around, waiting to be harvested, and revealed a full look at stats such as HP for each of the upcoming vehicles.

The leaked files shared that there would be three different ‘Valet’ car models, ranging in small, medium, and large, as well as a ‘DagwoodTruck’ for players to choose between. You can find the full stats list below.

Plenty of the files included highlighted the differences in fuel between each of the new cars, which might come as a surprise to many, as previous Fortnite vehicles have operated without the need to be refueled.

However, that does not seem to be the case for these cars, which seem to spawn in with a random amount of gas in every game.

Another Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey has leaked that ‘Petrol’ items were added to the game in late 2019, meaning that they might finally be introduced at some of the gas stations scattered around the map for players to refuel their new cars.

While the current state of the map is clearly not suitable for these new vehicles following the massive flood event in season 2, Epic Games have confirmed that the water level will decrease over the course of Season 3, opening up some possibilities for their release in the coming weeks.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
