Epic Games have been generating hype in the Fortnite fanbase with a series of mysterious images sent to content creators, supposedly to promote the impeding release of Chapter 3 Season 3. Youtuber Ali-A was the first to receive a message from Fortnite‘s official Twitter account on May 29, which contained only a cropped-out image that appeared to be part of a larger picture. Since then, four more content creators (Hiper, Rafa, Sharshock, and POW3R) have each received a piece of Epic Games’ puzzle, which Fortnite leaker HYPEX was able to piece together in a tweet today.

HYPEX also posted a number of supposedly leaked images of the game’s store page over the past week, all of which appear to suggest that the game’s next season will be related to the completion of a giant bear-like mech, which was previously seen under construction in the game’s lobby screen. The upcoming major update will also feature a battle pass with skins from Disney IPs like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, if a very convincing screenshot posted by HYPEX is to be believed – which is plausible, considering that a tweet made by the official Fortnite account today partially confirmed it with the June Crew Pack announcement.
POSSIBLY LEAKED SEASON 3 BATTLEPASS & JUNE CREW PACK!
This was apparently posted on 4chan last night. I highly doubt it’s fake as it’s WAY too much effort for someone to fake something like this, but who knows.. pic.twitter.com/gMQSneoYRA
