Lady Gaga? John Cena? Dragon Ball Z? What could be next for Fortnite as we inch closer to Season 4?

Fortnite players are in the middle of the third season in Chapter 3. After the storyline progression in Seasons 1 and 2, nothing of the sort applied to Season 3. Instead, Epic Games took a page out of their playbook and themed this season “Vibin.” As a result, the overarching storyline is on hold, and that will remain the case for about one more month until Fortnite Season 4. 

Soon, Fortnite fans can expect teasers, and perhaps some story elements will come back into play. We have everything you need to know ahead of the latest Fortnite season, including the Season 3 end date and some curious leaks. 

When will Fortnite Season 3 end and Season 4 begin?

According to leaks, Chapter 3 Season 3: Vibin, concludes on September 17, 2022. While Epic Games has not confirmed this information, the leakers are usually accurate. That means we have just over a month until Fortnite Season 4 begins in Chapter 3. 

We’ve yet to hear from Slone, The Foundation, or Agent Jones since the Chapter 3 Season 2 ending “Collision” event. Remember, The Foundation and Agent Jones jumped to another reality last season, which could come into play. 

In any case, Epic has kept the new season under wraps as usual. Still, the leakers never disappoint when theorizing what could be next in Fortnite Season 4. Let’s take a look at some of those leaks. 

A new Mech vehicle in Fortnite Season 4

From a gameplay perspective, not much is clear about Fortnite Season 4. However, a reliable leaker known as HYPEX dug up some potential intel about a new mech vehicle. Yes, that’s a scary concept, considering the mech suit from Season X. 

Epic Games has come a long way since those humble times back in Chapter 1. This new mech vehicle seems to be a more intricate design that could factor heavily into what Fortnite Season 4 has to offer in mid-September. 

More Fortnite collaborations on the way?

HYPEX wisely pointed out a slew of previously confirmed partnerships that Epic Games has yet to unveil. As we know, Fortnite has quickly become a marketing tool for new video games, tv shows, and moves. Also, we can’t forget the number of musical artists that have appeared in recent Fortnite seasons. 

The Lady Gaga crossover seems inevitable, considering the long history between her and Fortnite. Additionally, Doom and Metroid have come up in legitimate Epic Games documents. We’ll have to see if any of these come to fruition in Fortnite Season 4.

John Cena signals a relationship with Epic & Fortnite

Regarding collaborations, who could forget that WWE legend and current Hollywood actor John Cena just made his Fortnite debut? He did so in his iconic ring gear, and it was a well-received Fortnite crossover by all accounts. When reflecting on the reception, he said:

“Overwhelmed with the response from the @FortniteGame community and so grateful to now have ‘skin’ in the game. Already looking for more ways to be involved! Thank you!”

Could a Peacemaker skin be next following John Cena’s starring role in the HBO Max original? We’ll have to see if he’s referring to that or something else in Fortnite Season 4. 

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z

Here it is — perhaps the most anticipated collaboration in Fortnite history. Dragon Ball Z is coming to Fortnite very soon. While there have been conflicting reports, all signs indicate this crossover occurring either late in Season 3 or opening Fortnite Season 4. 

Furthermore, it could be the most robust in-game collaboration we’ve ever seen. We can be sure that Goku and Vegeta will appear, as will a Super Saiyan emote. Be on the lookout for more information as the date rapidly approaches. 

There’s still plenty of time left in Chapter 3 Season 3, but it’s never too soon to anticipate and predict what’s next. We’ll likely find out more as this season progresses and we move closer to Fortnite Season 4.
