Fortnite leaks reveal that Chapter 4 Season 3’s possible first collaboration will be with Spider-Man. Fortnite has a long list of intersections with pop culture names that extend far beyond the game. Among these names, Epic Games has found a particularly successful partnership between Fortnite and Disney properties.
A good example of this is the latest Fortnite-Star Wars crossover, which is proving to be bigger than fans thought. Billed as “the ultimate Star Wars experience in Fortnite,” the “Finding the Force” event has its mini battle pass and unlockable rewards. In this event, “Fortress Night” players can get the Coruscant guard suit, and the villain Darth Maul also got his own skin. Players can also get additional themed skins directly from the in-game store to make their characters look like Anakin Skywalker and Padm Amidala.
In the latest Fortnite leak, popular insider HYPEX revealed that Spider-Man will be the first partner in Chapter 4 Season 3. HYPEX points out that the partnership is likely to be with Miles Morales, one of the most powerful versions of Spider-Man in the multiverse, or a connection to the upcoming Spider-Man : Crossing the Spider-Verse movie. The leaker further detailed that Epic is developing a crossover that includes a Mythic weapon, two pickaxes, two backgrounds, an emote, and two skins codenamed “Hero Menace Universal.”
While the leak didn’t reveal the characters involved, the timing of the information’s release has convinced Fortnite players that it might indeed have something to do with traveling through the Spider-Verse. The new Spider-Man movie will be out on June 2, while Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 9. Notably, Fortnite Season 2 was originally scheduled to end on June 2. With the date shift, new Spider-Man movies and new Fortnite seasons will be released a few days apart, avoiding the conflict of premiering on the same day.
The latest Fortnite leak is big news for gamers, as the potential for content releases is huge. Miles Morales has a very interesting costume and is a very charismatic character. Players are also speculating that the “Universal Menace” skin may be Spider-Man 2099’s skin. Originally Spider-Man 2099 was the hero, but in the trailer for the new movie, he and Morales clashed. Taking it a step further, the Fortnite partnership with Spider-Man could be a massive Spider-Man-themed event, including skins for other related characters, like the beloved Spider-Man.
Fortnite is available for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
