Monster trucks are coming to Fortnite in Chapter 5 Season 3!

Monster Trucks are coming to Fortnite–a first for the game in its sixth year of operation. With Chapter 5 Season 3 less than one week from launching, Epic Games has ramped up its viral marketing. One such technique involved a life-size Battle Bus positioned strategically at a Monster Jam live event. This curious collaboration involved a Fortnite monster truck and a demolished Battle Bus.

A Fortnite monster truck DESTROYED the Battle Bus

The Fortnite portion of the Monster Jam event occurred at halftime. A Fortnite monster truck emerged from the tunnel and performed some acrobatic maneuvers. The massive vehicle eventually rolled on its side, shredding the Fortnite makeover. However, the Battle Bus in the middle ultimately suffered an unfortunate end.

With just a few days remaining until Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, we have confirmation that a monster truck vehicle will be in the equation. A vehicle with giant wheels is certainly not new to the game, but it is a welcome addition to Season 3.

This is not the first time we’ve seen Epic Games’ viral Fortnite marketing in the real world. In the build-up to Chapter 5, Fortnite took over the Las Vegas Sphere. Recent teasers have confirmed the theories that Chapter 5 Season 3 would center around an “apocalypse” setting.

Many new vehicles have emerged over the last week, and we can comfortably add a Fortnite monster truck to the mix.

The apocalypse theme expected next season should give the Island a sandy makeover. On top of the Fortnite monster truck and new vehicles, the landscape will change slightly, with new points of interest (POIs) and weapons. Epic Games recently confirmed a collaboration with the popular Bethesda title “Fallout.”

We expect to hear more about the new season over the next few days, so check back here.
