When was the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 release date? As we approached the end of the Vibin’ season which saw Darth Vader, Indiana Jones, and Dragon Ball characters make an appearance on the constantly changing Fortnite map, we started to look to Fortnite’s future. Popular Fortnite dataminers speculated that Season 4 would involve time travel in some capacity.

While we knew the exact release date of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4, we didn’t know the ins and outs of the season until quite close to its release. This might have been to do with the changing Fortnite map, or it could have been down to Epic wanting to keep new Fortnite weapons under wraps – but here’s all we knew before its release.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 release date

The Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 release date was September 18. We speculated on this date thanks to knowing when the current season ended, which was September 17, and we also had confirmation of this thanks to a post from Epic’s official Fortnite blog.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 battle pass character skins

Several Fortnite skins debuted in C3 S4, and one of them was a character from another licensed property. The licensed character skin you could unlock at the end of the battle pass was Spider-Gwen from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Another leaked skin was Goth Meowscles, complete with an ill-fitting beanie.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 Paradise theme

We discovered that the season’s name was ‘Paradise’ thanks to a video uploaded onto the Fortnite website and found by Shiina. A handful of teaser videos were also making the rounds. Each shows rather mundane scenes, such as a man putting milk on cereal, a woman spraying tomatoes with pesticide, and a woman applying some moisturiser on her skin, but all end with a chrome-like liquid infecting everything it touches.

Teaser images for Chapter 3 Season 4 also showed Paradigm’s hand sinking into the oil-like liquid. Hypex credits SentinelCentral for noticing that Donald Mustard, the chief creative officer at Epic Games, had followed Brie Larson on social media, indicating that Captain Marvel herself could voice Paradigm – and she indeed did. It wouldn’t be the first time a Hollywood celebrity would lend their likeness to a character in the game, as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was The Foundation back at the start of Chapter 3.

However, despite Brie Larson’s potential debut, the season’s battle pass also included a Marvel character and a new comic book collaboration with the Disney-owned subsidiary, the season’s theme was not Marvel.

Instead, we got a time-travel-themed season. It’s worth noting that while fitzy’s Throwback map was a concept idea for the new season, it shared parallels with events that happened in Chapter 3 Season 3. POIs did change suddenly because of the Reality Tree.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 gameplay changes

Thanks to Hypex,we knew ahead of time that these features would be in Chapter 3 Season 4:

  • Motorcycles
  • First-Person
  • 50v50 (Zero Build)
  • Storm King
  • Iron Man Gloves
  • Mech v2
  • Updated Planes
  • Halloween Goo Boss
  • Sand Borrow updated to ‘Blob’
  • Squad Heal Item
  • Super Storm Item
  • Saddle

While these additions primarily focused on items and vehicles, the new first-person perspective was the most exciting addition to the battle royale game. Changing the perspective in Fortnite went a long way to making the game feel much more like Warzone and PUBG.

And that’s everything we knew about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 before its release. If you haven’t wrapped up all of the weekly or Vibin’ challenges yet, you should look into where you can find Fortnite Ripsaw Launchers to knock down timber pines, where you can find the Fortnite Kamehameha weapon, and all of the details about Ballers and Reality Seeds you need to finish every quest.
