The Fortnite x Fallout collaboration is something many players are hyped about. The collab was teased by Epic Games and is set to arrive with Chapter 5 Season 3. This will likely be the main partnership of the season, meaning that we can expect a Fallout skin in the next Battle Pass. Furthermore, we expect new cosmetics, map changes, new items, and much more.

Epic hasn’t revealed a lot of information about the Fallout partnership yet. However, we do have some interesting details, which is why we put together an article that reveals what we know so far.

Fortnite x Fallout to come in Season 3

So far, the only teaser Epic Games posted regarding the Fortnite x Fallout collaboration is an image on X (formerly Twitter). Additionally, the game developer put the image in the game’s news feed with the following caption: “Chapter 5 Season 3: Wrecked Courtesy of the Brotherhood of Steel. Chapter 5 Season 3: Wrecked comes to Battle Royale on May 24.”

The caption confirmed the release date of the Fallout collaboration, which will be Friday, May 24. This is also the release date of the new Fortnite season, meaning that the collaboration will be available from the first day. While Epic hasn’t revealed anything about it, we also expect a Fallout-themed skin in the next Battle Pass. This could be the Vault Dweller, Vault Boy, or another iconic character from the popular gaming franchise.

The teaser image, which can be seen above, shows a character wearing power armor. Due to this, we believe that this will be one of the upcoming Battle Pass skins. If this turns out the be the case, however, the skin may not be available immediately. Instead, Epic will make it unlockable in the second month of the season, which has been the case for the previous collaboration skins in the Battle Pass.

Besides the skin, the teaser shows a new Fortnite location. We currently don’t know where it will be located, but it will certainly be popular. Furthermore, there is a chance that we will encounter a new boss at this location. Judging from the past, Epic may also release a new Mythic weapon or ability. However, this hasn’t been confirmed yet.

With Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 coming on May 24, we will likely get more details soon. Epic Games will probably release new Fortnite teasers over the next few days, and some of them may give us more information about the Fallout collab.
