Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass Theme Looks To Be Superheroes
Fortnite Season 4 is "coming soon."
The next season of Fortnite: Battle Royale is right around the corner. With the last set of Season 3 challenges now live and the next component of the meteor mystery seemingly live, Epic Games has released a new teaser image for what Season 4 will have in store--and it might be superhero-themed. [Update: A new version of the Season 4 image has been released.]
Epic shared the image below on Twitter, accompanied by the text, "Battle. Adapt. Win. Season 4 coming soon." The same image on Fortnite's website is accompanied by the words, "Brace for impact!" The image itself shows what looks like a superhero, which may provide some hint at what kind of new skins and cosmetics to expect from the Season 4 Battle Pass. Season 3's skins are largely space-themed, which ties in with the ongoing meteor and alien speculation. With Avengers: Infinity War just hitting theaters, Epic might be looking to capitalize on the superhero buzz in-game.
A start date for Season 4 has not yet been announced, but Season 3 is set to wrap up on May 3. It's unclear if Season 4 will start right away, but you can expect there to be another Battle Pass for sale. Epic had planned to sell Season 3's for real-world money but ultimately decided to offer it only for V-Bucks, an in-game currency.

We still don't know what to make of Battle Royale's meteor. Players have repeatedly expected it to crash into Tilted Towers, only for nothing to happen--something that Epic even acknowledged with a recent Tilted Towers update.
Shooting stars now populate the sky, and the game has seen the addition of a bars and tones image that can be seen on TVs in-game, further signaling that something is about to happen. Players think they've found what resemble UFOs in the sky alongside the meteor, and the game's files apparently include sound effects for the meteor finally crashing.
Maybe aliens are coming and superheroes will have to face off against them. Maybe the meteor is somehow the superhero pictured above. Earlier speculation suggested this could all be tied to Fortnite's original PvE component, Save the World, finally exiting Early Access. Whatever the case, Season 4 will be underway soon--and in the meantime, meteors are starting to hit.
