Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 estimated release date and Collision live event release time

Here's when the current season will end, and when you'll be able to access the Collision event.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is on the horizon, and thanks to some teases by Epic Games, and now a full reveal of the upcoming live event, we have an idea as to what could be in store.

Throughout Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, we've seen The Seven battling it out with IO forces, with the map becoming a warzone around Tilted Towers.

This page gives a release time for the Collision live event, and what we can expect once the new season lands.

This season, the IO and the Seven have been engaged in all-out war.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 estimated release date

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 will likely release around June 4th, 2022. This is when the in-game timer indicates the current season will end. We don't have exact timings just yet, so hold tight for an update to this page. In the past, there have been periods of downtime lasting from one to three days.

It's worth noting that with new seasons there is usually a hefty period of downtime. Previously, this has been as long as 36 hours, with players only able to watch a black hole whilst in-game.

What can we expect from Chapter 3 Season 3?

Official details are sparse currently as to what we can expect from Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. So far, we've only had a brief teaser from Epic Games, showing distorted audio waves and then the logo for Mecha Team Leader. The Collision event has now been fully unveiled too, with artwork that confirms the return of Mecha Team Leader and The Singularity. Hold tight for the battle of Zero Point.

The last we saw of the giant robotic bear was as part of a season finale back in 2019. During this showdown, we saw Mecha Team Leader defeat the Devourer, before launching off into space, piloted by the Singularity.

With Season 2 being focused on the battle between IO and The Seven, we're betting on an action packed finale, ending in the return of Mecha Team Leader. Now that The Seven has been fully revealed, the stakes are high.

The Collider has appeared!

Recently, and in the run up to the end of Fortnite's current season, a new location has popped up. If you head to Loot Lake, you will find a new area that is greyed out on the map. This is The Collider, which you can see in the image above.

The Collider is essentially a large IO base with a huge tower at its centre. You can get air if you jump up and around the tower, allowing you to fly to another named location. There's also a scanner to be found there.

It's possible more teases will come in the week leading up to the Collision event. Either way - make sure you get everything you want to done before Chapter 3 Season 2 is gone for good!
