Fortnite’s next season will be called “Mega” and feature a first-person mode
by Danny Craig ·
According to reputable leakers, Fortnite Chapter 4 for Season 2 will be called "Mega" and will feature a futuristic, Japanese theme alongside new items and a new mode.
- Twitter user @hashflagsio has discovered the season's title, logo, and three Twitter hashtags, revealing the neon-colored Japanese logo. Last week, sources revealed the season's theme with an image of an in-game location featuring a futuristic, Neo-Tokyo design, a significant departure from the current map's variety of climates and emphasis on a more natural look.
- Some of the rumored new game additions will follow the theme, such as a futuristic motorcycle, katanas, and a reboot augment. In addition to the katanas, the update will include a new pistol, shotgun, and swords. We don't know what these weapons will look like, but they may closely follow the futuristic theme.
- Along with the update, an official first-person mode for the battle royale title is also on the way. A Fortnite leaker named @HYPEX shared a first-person image of a player shooting an assault rifle and claimed that a "reliable source" confirmed its upcoming release. It's expected to be an optional setting rather than a separate mode like the popular no-build mode.
Other upcoming game update rumors:
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive could be receiving a beta for its port to Source 2 by April. Fans spotted that an Nvidia game profile for "Counter-Strike 2" had been added in a recent driver update, fueling speculation that the long-awaited port to the updated Source 2 engine is arriving very soon. Sources have now allegedly confirmed this news, according to a report from Richard Lewis, who claims that the beta should be coming sometime in March or April.
- Halo Infinite may receive an updated and expanded version of Halo: Reach's classic Forge World map as a Forge canvas. Recently leaked screenshots of what appears to be an in-development version of the map as a Forge canvas show multiple playable areas that were previously inaccessible in the original version of the map. It's expected to arrive at some point in the future, along with a new season update, to entice players to return to the game after its player count has dropped dramatically since its highly successful launch in 2021.
