Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 is slowly coming to an end and fans are already wondering what will happen in the new season.

Let's not dilly-dally any longer and let's dive into all the leaks, teasers and details we've collected about Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 so far. And don't worry, as soon as there is more news, we will of course update this article for you.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4: Start Date

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 ends on Friday, August 25 2023, at 2 AM ET. Even though the official end of the Chapter 4 Season 3 Battle Pass falls on 25 August, the new season may not start until the following day. This means that you can expect Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 to be released on 25 or 26 August 2023 at the latest.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4: News & Leaks

It's still a little while before Chapter 4 Season 4 is released, but you know Fortnite's dataminers. They're constantly digging and digging into the codes, pulling out one leak after another. And we're here for you to collect them.

Fortnite: End Of Season Live Event

So far we don't know if there will be a live event for the Season 3 finale. However, the odds are pretty high.

Since we didn't get a live event at the end of Season 1 or Season 2, there are still a lot of open story questions. Also, since it was leaked that Season 4 will be the last season from Chapter 4, the theme of Chapter 5 must be slowly prepared. In addition, some leaks indicate that.

If you've been following the story in Fortnite a bit, you've probably done a secret mission or two where you have to bring Prisms to Trace.Once you've done that, he'll tell you that they belong to the machine located at the top of the ruin. Once you bring him the last prism, he says the following words:

You found it! This is the last kinetic prism we need. We have been working with Dr. Slone to put it in the apparatus. If her theory is correct, things are about to get really interesting.

It appears that the apparatus is a telescope that, once fully built, will observe an astral map in the stars. Leaker iFireMonkey has also discovered a file that contains a "Rift Gate" and a "Sky Tear", which suggests that something bad will happen while players are watching the stars. Here's what it will look like in-game:

Helicopters Are Returning

According to Hypex, Epic Games have updated Fortnite's helicopters. You get a rocket launcher that fires every 2 seconds, dealing 35 damage to players and 450 damage to structures.

With that, it is very likely that they will return in Chapter 4 Season 4.

First Person Mode

According to a tweet from our favorite Fortnite leaker HYPEX, who has always been a reliable source of Fortnite leaks and news in the past, Epic Games has started developing a first-person camera mode.

And now more files have been found that clearly indicate a first-person view for the Chapter 4 map. So it's very likely that the feature will come into play as early as Season 4.

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 speculates that Epic is still working on finding the perfect way for players to use them, though its related tweet has since been deleted. Who knows, maybe weapon mods will finally come into play in Season 4 anyway.

Flying Mounts

A slightly older Twitter post from HYPEX also states that Epic is working on "rideable, flying animals" for Fortnite. Apparently, players will be able to boost the animal for more speed and fly on "idle". Idling would likely mean the mount could hover in the air to allow players to shoot more accurately or throw items. Earlier, an item that looked like a saddle in Fortnite was leaked. Presumably this item could be related to the flying mounts.

However, we assume that the flying mounts will only come into the game in a later season.

Chapter 4 Season 4 Map Changes & New POIs

With Chapter 4 Season 4 we won't get a completely new map this time, but as always there will be some changes on the island.

New Biomes

Since a new biome has been added in every season of Chapter 4 so far, we assume that this will also happen in the final season of Chapter 4. However, this is pure speculation so far. It is possible that Epic will add another desert biome to the map.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4: Battle Pass Skin Leaks

Nothing is known yet about the Battle Pass for Season 4. However, Epic often sends out skin surveys to players, from which 1-2 skins usually appear in the Battle Pass each season.

In addition, players suspect that in the next season, One Piece may finally come to Fortnite!

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass: New Weapons & Items

What would a new season be without new weapons and items? So far, there has never been a season in which not a single new weapon has been added. It's also possible that some old fan favourites will be taken out of the vault again. However, we still have to wait a little for the information.

And that's it for now with the leaks.

And that was it for now with the leaks. What would you wish for Chapter 4 Season 4? Please let us know! We'll update this article as soon as there's more news, so don't forget to check back often!
