Waterways under the Fortnite island have begun spilling their contents ahead of Season 3 leaks that could tell us what affects The Device will have on the map.

The event that’s been delayed three times is now set to go off as Epic triggered a countdown over The Agency that has audiences across the battle royale excited to see what will come out of it.

They won’t have long to wait either, since the timer is set to run off on Monday, June 15, which could be plenty of time to submerge the landscape or anything else that Midas and the Agency have plotted.

Audiences could start feeling the effects of the plan soon as the hatches located near the Agency building have opened, and it’s already sending theorists ablaze since it could be confirming initial beliefs of the event.

For weeks, images and videos have surfaced of a Fortnite island completely submerged. These gave way to many ideas of possible collaborations between the devs and other franchises, although nothing has yet to materialize.

Popular convention indicates that the flood will lead right into the new season, leaving players with a huge cliffhanger that will alter the state of the island and set up the next chapter of The Agency’s story.

Clips from dataminers suggest the water that will flood the island will then gradually, if not instantly, recede from the game in the events of the upcoming season.

Even still, this will mark a big turning point in Fortnite’s main story, evidenced by a PlayStation store thumbnail leak that seemed to highlight a flooded island behind the flying Battle Bus.

Here’s what it could mean for Season 3

At this point, it’s assumed that The Agency, at least on the face of the map, will be in complete shambles by the time Season 3 rolls around.

Whatever Midas is planning will either catastrophically backfire or succeed in creating sheer havoc across the island and propelling it into the next story point of the series.

Fortnite fans won’t have much longer to wait either, as the countdown over the Agency slowly winds down and unleashing whatever Epic has planned for its players.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.
