Fortnite’s Season 3 update is right around the corner and new leaks in the game’s v12.50 update appear to confirm an underwater journey is on its way.

Epic Games has treated players to a wide variety of climates over the years, and now, it looks like the heat will be turning up a notch in Season 3.

After weeks of speculation, and even an underwater mechanic in the recent Astronomical event, new leaks seem to have confirmed the focus of the upcoming season.

Epic Games already released a variety of skins that would be perfect for underwater exploration.

New Fortnite Season 3 leaked posters.

Digging through the files of the latest patch, prominent Fortnite data-miner ‘FortTory’ uncovered three new files that tease what lies ahead.

Labeled in the game’s code as “S13_Poster_Teasers,” the leaks reveal a summer-themed season as players get ready for a beach-bash.

The first image shows Meowscles in waist-deep water with inflatable armbands covering each bicep. Meanwhile, the second leaked poster shows an entire house floating. Sea levels clearly having risen above the fence in the front yard.

Bananas are friends, not food.

The last of the leaked posters depicts the Peely skin in a spot of bother. Harkening back to the 1975 Jaws movie poster, the banana-skin is seen floating over an enormous shark.

There’s no telling just from this image alone if sharks will be added in the Season 3 update in some capacity. Though it would certainly fit the ocean-theme.

All three posters include the same icon in the bottom left corner. A small, circular emblem containing an umbrella that appears to be on fire due to the heat.

Epic Games
Fortnite’s swimming mechanics could be getting an overhaul in the next major update.

With motorboats already in the game, perhaps the Season 3 update will introduce a number of new water-based vehicles. From Jet skis to submarines, new vehicle opportunities are endless.

After a recent delay, we now know exactly when Season 2 is set to end and when we can drop into the next major update.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
