Optimus Prime May Be Coming To Fortnite Soon
Reliable leaks indicate that Optimus Prime may come to Fortnite in Season 3.
Fortnite's Chapter 4 Season 3 isn't quite here yet, but we've got a pretty good idea of what might be coming to the battle royale shooter in June. Perhaps the biggest piece of news is that an Optimus Prime skin might be coming to the game as this season's big crossover, and other Transformers-themed items could be along for the ride.

In the above tweet, reliable Fortnite leaker HypeX broke down all of the leaks that have emerged about the upcoming season so far. They include rideable raptors that get exhausted, a tropical biome with desert and volcano-themed areas, Ratchet & Clank-style grind rails, and a full new racing mode, complete with cosmetics, a car garage, and race tracks. Weapon-specific leaks suggest that the Lever Action Rifle and Infantry Rifle will make a return, along with the introduction of a Mythic Drum Shotgun.
The Optimus Prime skin in particular seems to originate from a loading screen that was posted to a popular gaming leaks community on Reddit. As usual, it's best to treat these leaks as unconfirmed rumors for the time being, and thus with a whole heaping helping of salt. However, it is true that Fortnite leakers have a pretty good track record when it comes to things like this. As HypeX notes in a follow-up tweet, the leakers don't know for sure if all of this new content is planned for Season 3 alone, so it's possible that some of it will emerge in coming seasons.
We don't know for sure when Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 is coming, but the official Fortnite website indicates that Season 2 will end on June 9. That means that it's likely that Season 3 will start over that weekend, either June 10 or June 11. In other Fortnite news, Season 2 recently introduced Spider-Man 2099 as a skin, along with Spider-Man-themed quests.
