Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3: Release Date, Possible Theme, and What We Know So Far

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is in full swing, but players are already looking ahead to what Season 3 has in store. Here’s a breakdown of everything we know so far, including the release date, rumored theme, and more.

What to Expect

Apocalypse Now… Maybe?

While the official theme remains under wraps, leaks suggest an apocalyptic vibe might be brewing. A recent Fortnite survey showcased several apocalyptic-themed skins, often a good indicator of future content. Remember, many current Battle Pass skins were also teased in a similar survey.

What Else Might Change?

Major map changes are practically guaranteed, with new landmarks and locations to explore. The long-awaited first-person mode might finally be making its debut, with leaker Hypex hinting at the removal of “weapons charms” potentially paving the way. Expect the usual weapon balance adjustments and a possible tweak to character movement speed to keep things fresh.

New Battle Pass and Collaborations

While there are no confirmed details yet, we can expect a fresh Battle Pass filled with new cosmetics and challenges to arrive alongside Season 3. Epic Games is also known for exciting collaborations, so keep an eye out for potential partnerships in the upcoming season.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 Release Date

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is expected to launch on Friday, May 24, 2024, at 2 AM ET / 11 PM PT / 6 PM GMT (May 23). This is based on the end date of the current season’s Battle Pass and is usually a reliable way to predict the start of a new season.

However, there’s a slight chance it might be delayed by a day, similar to the nearly 19-hour delay of the current season. Keep an eye on the Battle Pass end date, which is 2 AM Eastern Time. The new season will likely begin right after, with a brief server downtime in between.

With over a month to go, this is just a glimpse into what might be coming. Leaks often precede new seasons, so expect more information to surface in the coming weeks. yStay tuned for updates as we learn more about Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3!
