Epic Games have released yet another Fortnite Season 3 teaser image and unlike previous graphics, it looks like we’ve finally been given a first look at a brand new location. 

This is just one in a series of cryptic images released by the game developer, with others seemingly teasing a crossover with Aquaman.

In the aftermath of the Device event, which gave us a glimpse at the potential rising sea levels coming soon, it’s suspected that much of the original island will get destroyed. Now, we have a fresh image to support that theory.

As seen in a tweet from Epic on June 16, there’s going to be a lot of debris lying around after the event comes to a close.

The image, below, shows what appears to be a boat on land, with a building we’ve not seen before in the background.

That’s not all, either, as the game devs retweeted an image from user LianqN some 20 minutes later. This image, however, is a little more zoomed out than the original.

Here, we can see that there’s much more than a shipwreck going on. In fact, an all-new location – which we can probably soon drop at – looks to have been unveiled.

This isn’t the first set of teasers we’ve seen, however, as a few others have since been posted on social media. Those, as well as a shark image posted to Facebook by the official Fornite account, would suggest that water will almost certainly play a big part in the game’s next season.

The patch to kick things off for Season 3 rolls out on June 17. Then, and only then, will we know what all of this means for the future of the island.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
