Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is just hours away and it is sure to bring big changes to the game, from map changes, new loot, and of course a brand new Battle Pass full of skins and cosmetics for players to unlock. Ahead of the start of Season 3, Epic Games has released the key art for the season, which gives us a look at what we can expect including new skins, vehicles, and weapons.

In the key art, Magneto from Marvel’s X-Men can be seen on the right side of the image, revealing that we can expect to see the hero in the upcoming Battle Pass.

Collaborations are nothing new in Fortnite Battle Passes, with the likes of Family Guy’s Peter Griffin and Metal Gear Solid’s Solid Snake being recent inclusions. It isn’t known yet whether Magneto will be included in the regular Battle Pass where players earn Stars by leveling up, or whether he will be the bonus skin, which is usually released on week 7 with a set of challenges to complete.

In addition to X-Men’s Magneto, Epic Games has also announced that the season will kick off with a Fallout collaboration, which comes after the release of the hit TV series on Amazon Prime Video, and the recent Fallout 4 next-gen update that brought the 2015 game to modern standards including a PS5 release.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 will also see changes to the Festival mode, adding the recently included Pro charts to the controller and keyboard after having previously only been available for players using plastic guitar instruments such as the Riffmaster.
