Is Fortnite getting a new map in Chapter 4 Season 3?

Well, it’s very likely that Fortnite will get a new map in Chapter 4 Season 3. It could be a  jungle themed map, based on the leaks we’ve seen so far.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – New skins

Squad Origins

Wensoing, a well-known leaker, claims that new skins for Squad Origins are currently in development at Epic Games. There will be ten skins total, five each for men and women.

Optimus Prime

Data miners on Twitter began sharing information they’ve received in recent days, including a portion of screenshots showing several different Fortnite-style skins, notably Especially Optimus Prime. iFireMonkey shared multiple screenshots, first of the leaked image and Reddit post, then of what he thought were the things that were cropped in the photo.

Male Sidewinder

The leaked loading screen prominently features a skin for an explorer or adventurer that looks a lot like the Sidewinder Outfit featured in Season 8’s Discovery-themed Battle Pass. This new male Sidewinder skin fits in perfectly with the overall theme of Chapter 4 Season 3.

Punk rock survey skin

In addition to Male Sidewinder and Optimus Prime, the leaked Chapter 4 Season 3 Loading Screen reveals two new skins. One of them has blonde hair and dresses in a punk rock style.

This was discovered in an Epic Games skin survey. Epic Games sends out skin surveys on a regular basis to gauge the opinions of Fortnite players, and this punk rock outfit must have gone over well!

Summer Meowscles

Meowscles, the swole cat, is a popular Fortnite character with a variety of skins and styles. As Summer approaches, Meowscles appears to be getting yet another outfit! Summer Meowscles features the muscular cat dressed in an open button-down shirt and flip-flops.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – Racing mode

A new racing mode could also be added to Fortnite in the upcoming season. We hope to see more classic game modes like races, battles to the death, rallies, and more added to Fortnite very soon. However, there is a chance that the race mode won’t arrive until much later in Season 3 or even later. This is because it is scheduled for release within the next four months.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – NPC overhaul

Dataminer and leaker Shiina suggests that a brand new class of NPCs is on the way to Fortnite. Found in the game’s files, these alternate versions of preexisting NPCs promise to offer a different element of gameplay.

The NPCs will spawn armored vehicles. Although their intent isn’t stated in the tweet announcing the news, there’s a good chance this will result in some new gameplay with hostile NPCs.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – Raptors return

According to Twitter user and Fortnite data miner FNAssist, new audio files for exhausted and resting sounds for the Raptors have been added to the game. This could imply that the players will be able to ride these creatures in the new season, though they may tire and slow down in speed.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – Map changes and new biome

Major map changes are coming to Fortnite Season 3, and leakers like Shiina and HYPEX have confirmed it. Both a volcano and a jungle biome are being added to the game. As of this writing, it is unknown how the altered maps will affect gameplay.

Shiina also mentioned that players may come across mud, which will slow them down as they run through it. Players believe that this mud is related to the recently unvaulted Dirt Bike vehicle. Dirt Bikes allow players to easily maneuver their way through the mud while avoiding becoming entangled in it and being spotted by other players.

GMatrixGames also revealed that the game will detect whether you are driving in mud or not. Driving in mud has an impact on both the way your vehicle moves and its speed.

Wenso, a leaker, hinted at a possible tropical or desert setting by tweeting that Epic Games had included new files for palm trees and cacti in the most recent update, which were created with Chapter 4 in mind.

The textures discovered have been shared on Twitter in image and file form, indicating that this leak is pretty solid – but it does mean that the Chapter 4 Season 3 map will most likely undergo significant changes. Given how quickly the snow melted after Christmas, a summer-themed map makes sense.

Furthermore, Hypex also revealed that the next season will feature a jungle biome and volcanic rocks. Most players were ecstatic to hear about this because it had been a long time since they had the opportunity to play in this biome.

Many people believe that the jungle biome will be located near Mega City in the southeastern part of the map. Windcatch Lake, east of Mega City, is said to be an inactive volcano that will soon erupt and destroy the nearby city, similar to what happened with Tilted Towers. This theory is bolstered by the mention of volcanic rocks. There are many geysers near this location, which could be related to underground volcanic activity.

Whether or not these rumors are true, we can’t wait to see what new features and improvements the upcoming season of Fortnite brings.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 – New vehicle leak

According to rumors, a new surfboard-like vehicle will be added to Fortnite as part of the upcoming summer season. We anticipate that the surfboard will perform nearly identically to the Driftboard from Chapter 1 Season 7.

That wraps up what we know about Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3.
