Despite appearing in the launch trailer for Fortnite Season 3, a number of new vehicles are still yet to pop up in-game and a new delay has now set them back even further.

Leaks early into the season assured that an assortment of new vehicles would be arriving on July 21. Fortnite’s v13.30 patch has since come and gone and while plenty of information has leaked, new cars are yet to appear on the map.

We know that there will be at least six new additions ranging from small cars to trucks. They’ll even come boasting all-new fuel mechanics to keep things balanced. New statistics also slipped through the cracks in the latest update too, highlighting just how powerful these cars will be.

All of this information seemingly pointed towards an imminent release, but vehicles won’t be making their way to the battle royale just yet, Epic has revealed.

“Our lawyers are currently sweating the policy details and fixing typos like ‘otter coverage’ instead of auto coverage. Due to this, many vehicles got taken for inspection,” Epic Games shared through the official Fortnite Twitter account on July 23. “Expect a few weeks until we’re road-ready.”

Fortnite’s Season 3 reveal showcased a wide array of these vehicles in action. Given that we’re now well underway with the current season, these vehicles were expected to arrive soon. A tongue in cheek tweet revealed we’re going to have to hold our breath a little while longer, however.

While there’s no telling just how far along the features are, this wording implies that they’re not quite polished enough. Developers at Epic need a little while longer to work out the kinks, but could these new vehicles be held until Season 4?

The current season is expected to wrap up on August 27, rolling straight into the next major content drop. This also means that the Summer Splash event will come to an end as well. With a few extra weeks needed to ensure that the vehicles work as intended, that leaves little room to fit them in with Season 3.

A potential solution could be to extend the current season entirely. Due to the ongoing global crisis, Epic made the difficult decision to delay its most recent in-game event. Therefore, Season 4 plans could be put on hold just as well. Giving vehicles the proper time to bask in the spotlight as they round out Season 3.

There’s no telling exactly when you’ll be able to get behind the wheel of a sports car in Fortnite. However, a few weeks implies mid to late August, so keep your eyes peeled for future announcements. 

While you’re waiting, make sure you get up to speed on just how the new Fortnite vehicles will function once they actually arrive.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
