At this point, details relating to Chapter 3 Season 3 are few and far between; however, recent Fortnite leaks have revealed some critical information on what may lie in wait for us.

Live Event Details For Chapter 3 Season 2


It is confirmed — there will be a Fortnite Live Event 2022. Chapter 3 Season 1 left us longing for a Live Event, but the affair set to wrap up Chapter 3 Season 2 should be one for the ages.

The details are still coming out, but from the available leaks, the Live Event will revolve around us Fortnite players piloting a recommissioned version of The Mech.

The Imagined Order (IO) has a fully developed Doomsday Device at Fortnite The Collider just waiting to be unleashed. From the looks of things, The Seven plans to bring the fight to the IO in a final attempt to save the Island from mass destruction.

Further leaks confirm that The Origin, Paradigm, and Doctor Slone will all play vital roles in the Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event.

Chapter 3 Season 2 will come to a close on June 3, and Chapter 3 Season 3 will launch a little bit later on June 5, 2022.

This comes following leaks that previously confirmed that Chapter 3 Season 2 will end with another "to be continued" screen, which is also what happened after the Fortnite The End Event and during The Blackout.

Piecing together various context clues, Chapter 3 Season 3 may follow a space theme. 

Take a gander at the new in-game lobby background and you can see that The Seven have established a base in space. If we aren't successful in our mission to save the Island from total destruction, it's feasible that the events of Chapter 3 Season 2 will occur in space.

Furthermore, reliable Fortnite leakers claim that both Darth Vadar and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars will make an appearance in Chapter 3 Season 3. With rumours of a Star Wars theme or even just a Star Wars point of interest, it seems as though a space-themed season is in the realm of possibility.

Remember, this is all speculation. As of now, the true theme of Chapter 3 Season 3 remains a mystery.

As always, we'll keep you in The Loop on everything Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 as it gets revealed.
