Fortnite Cars Update Is Still Weeks Away

The popular battle royale game is expected to get drivable cars, but they won't added for a few weeks.


Don't expect cars to be added to Fortnite Battle Royale just yet. Despite being teased as one of the new additions that would come as part of Season 3, they've still yet to arrive, and now we know not to expect them to pop up imminently. On Twitter, Epic announced that it would take a few more weeks to get cars added into the game, in a very tongue-in-cheek manner, saying the vehicles needed an inspection. No exact date for when cars will arrive has been shared as of yet.

The new vehicles were featured in the trailer for Chapter 2 Season 3 at the start of the season, but they have yet to be added. According to a tease on Epic's official website that roadways would become available as the water level receded throughout the season, making drivable vehicles available later.

Now Playing: Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 - Battle Pass Trailer

There are other drivable vehicles in the game already, like helicopters and boats, but the trailer specifically teased drivable trucks and cars, which have not been in the game previously. Other vehicles, like hamster balls and golf carts, have been in the game previously, but have since been removed.

Players have found files in the game for four types of cars, small cars, medium cars, large cars, and trucks.

One of the leaked Week 6 challenges for Fortnite Season 3 was to gas up a vehicle at Catty Corner, which implied that vehicles would be available in the game this week. Fortnite's Update 13.30 went live recently, which updated gas stations in Salty Springs and Pleasant Park.
