Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 3 Introduces Aquaman, a Cat in a Mech, Rideable Sharks, and More

The new season is tropical paradise-themed.

Earlier today, Season 3 of Fortnite Chapter 2 launched worldwide. In keeping with Fortnite's updates over the course of Chapter 2 so far, the latest additions to Epic's game are pretty whacky.

As usual, there's a brand-new Battle Pass to purchase and level up. Within this Battle Pass though, are some pretty weird skins. You can get hold of an Aquaman outfit resembling Jason Mamoa, a cat sitting atop the small mech it pilots (perhaps the final form of Meowcles?), a version of Jonesy with a massive beard, and other skins.

Elsewhere in the changes to Fortnite, there are now rideable sharks in the water. As seen in the introductory trailer for Season 3, you can hitch your fishing rod to the mouth of a shark, and have it pull you along in the water, acting like some sort of weird organic boat.

Epic Games started putting out tropical paradise-themed teasers for the new season of Fortnite around a month ago, so this new season's tropical theme isn't a huge surprise. The battle royale island has completely flooded, so there's brand new areas to explore around the island including beaches, pirate forts, and more.

This all comes after a climactic event closing out Fortnite Season 2, which Epic actually had to cap out the player count. The special device intended to push back the encroaching storm broke down, with the entire island being obliterated by the seas.

Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 3 is out now for iOS, Android, PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. All you have to do is download the latest patch, which is right around 8GB on all platforms, and you're good to go.
