After Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 gave us a completely new map and new features, Season 2 and Season 3 went above and beyond. Not only did we get a no-build mode in Fortnite, but now we can even climb, sprint, and ride animals!

But the current season is slowly coming to an end, which is why players are starting to wonder what will happen in Season 4.

Let's not delay, let's dive into all the leaks, teasers and details we've collected about Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 so far.

The Release Date For Chapter 3, Season 4 In Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 will be released on September 18, 2022

At least if everything goes as planned. While there is no official end date for Fortnite Season 3, if you look at the current Battle Pass, you'll see the message "Chapter 3 - Season 3 through September 17" in the bottom left corner. Since you still have time to complete your Battle Pass on this day, the season will probably end at the end of this day and Season 4 will appear a day later.

Everything We Know About Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4

There's still some way to go before Chapter 3, Season 4 comes out, but you know the Fortnite dataminers. They're constantly digging and digging through the codes, pulling out one leak after the next. And we are here for you to collect them.

Leaks & News About The Live Event

So far we don't know if we will get a live event in the current season, but a very big teaser points to it. Maybe you didn't notice because the Vibin' trailer got you way too hooked with its good vibes, but watch the ending from minute 1:07:

We see a strange character whose head is somewhat reminiscent of the blossoms of the reality trees. And it seems the entity even controls the tree. The gloomy atmosphere also shows us that the creature is not exactly in a friendly mood. But what it plans to do, or what will happen at the end of the season, is still yet to be revealed.

First-Person Mode

According to a tweet from our favorite Fortnite leaker HYPEX, who has historically been a reliable source of Fortnite leaks and news, Epic Games has started developing a first-person camera mode during Chapter 3, Season 3.

Since Epic has brought new features to Chapter 3 each season, we can assume that the first-person mode might even appear in Season 4.

Time To Go Skateboarding

The old Fortnite fans among you probably still remember the hoverboards that you used to jet across the map in Chapter 1. While the hoverboards won't be returning, something similar to Fortnite that looks more like a skateboard should come. Again, these leaks come from our good friend HYPEX, who claims that Epic has just started developing a skating feature that is comparable to the slide mechanic already in the game. Going uphill is slower, while going downhill is faster.

The recently released skate park could also be Epic's first official reference to it.

Weapon Mods

It was leaked a while ago that Epic Games was working on weapon mods. Unfortunately, they haven't appeared in the game yet. HYPEX believes Epic is still working on finding the perfect way for players to use them. Who knows, maybe they'll finally come into play in Season 4?

Chapter 3, Season 4 Map changes and new POI's

Community creators have released several map concepts, but nothing has been confirmed yet. However, many believe that the mood in the game will change massively.

The current season is titled Vibin' and offers a huge party atmosphere. One has the feeling that this will change drastically when the person behind the reality tree takes the lead. And an interesting POI has even been leaked.

POI DDMachine

In the files you will find a new POI codenamed DDMachine. It is not yet known where this place is supposed to be, but it is associated with the words "Thermal" & "Lightning". Maybe some kind of experiment or weather station?

Chapter 3, Season 4 Battle Pass Skin Leaks

Nothing is known about the Season 4 Battle Pass, but there are some leaks about various characters that may appear in Fortnite next season.

Avatar, SpongeBob & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Paramount has signed a deal with Epic Games. The perfect template to start crossovers with, for example, Avatar, SpongeBob, the Ninja Turtles and so on. These will not come to Fortnite as Battle Pass Skins, but maybe in the item shop over the course of the season. Logically, none of this has been officially confirmed yet, but the possibilities seem endless!

Will We Get New Weapons & Items In Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4?

Hopefully! Or we hope for new, old weapons. Yes, this season was a change again, but I think we can speak for everyone when we say that the last three seasons have been far too sprayer-friendly. We expect a better shotgun, preferably our old pump gun!

It remains to be seen whether Epic will fulfill the community's wish. And that was it for now with the leaks. We'll update this article as soon as there's more news, so don't forget to check back often!
