Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the biggest games in the world still. When we are taking a look at Fortnite we can see that it did revolutionize the gaming world with their marketing strategies, after all not all games made collaborations with movie titles like Avengers and Star Wars. This success led to an influx in player base for 2 years, however, after two years the game is going towards consolidating the player base. Fortnite’s success is undeniable as many followed them into the Battle Royale genre afterward such as Apex Legends and Warzone. Even though these games are unique they are still Battle Royale titles.
In recent months, we have seen many complaints from the player base regarding the game. One of these complaints was for the delays in the games season schedule. The new seasons are expected and hyped by the players since in a Battle Royale game, it changes the gameplay and also resets it. The map changes occur generally during the Seasonal updates and most of the new weapons also come along with them. However, Epic Games earned a bad reputation regarding the recent seasons since they are generally delayed again and again. But we hope that this time they are finalizing the release date for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 Release Date
Incredibly the release date was postponed 3 times. First to June 4th, later to June 11th and finally to June 17th. But we are hoping that June 17th is the actual release date this time. Epic Games is becoming unreliable with dates and with community support. Especially after their award in The Game Awards for Community Support things started to go sideways.. Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 2 Season 3 is expected to last for 3 months as long as we can survive the next few months we are expecting Chapter 4 release date to be around September or October.
Map changes are one of the most important part of the new seasons in Fortnite. Most notably the environmental effects are very exciting in the game. The map generally changes and it changes the gameplay along with it. We remember how much the gameplay can change from Chapter One snow biome addition. They added slippery Ice Locations into the map and players found new ways to adapt to it. Of course, we are expecting the map to evolve to that stage again but before Season 6 we were not expecting that heavy changes to come. However, the new map changes already leaked and they look substantial contrary to expectations.
According to leaks we are expecting the island to be flooded. This will create bigger water areas and fights will be harder. Another interesting part we are expecting some areas to be removed from map or to become islands. According to leaks, there will be quite a change to the Fortnite island. The Doomsday event is at hand and it will occur on June 15th therefore after this date most probably an apocalyptic sequence will begin to flood the map. Also, more aquatic vehicles will be available with the new map changes.
Just like every new season with this season, there will be also new weapons coming into the game. We are expecting a nautical themed weapon coming and maybe harpoons might come back into the game. Also according to leaks, there will a new assault rifle coming and a new sniper weapon. We are also expecting some of the weapons to be vaulted with the new season as well. The Fortnite community has spoken about the number of shotguns in the game is so high and we are expecting Epic Games to vault some of them. A new healing item might also be on its way according to the leaks.
