We don't know a lot at this stage, but there will likely be some map changes, and definitely a new Battle Pass with skins and emotes to unlock.

However, fans are predicting Thor to appear as a secret skin.

This is based off some datamined assets which resemble the marks Thor leaves when he teleports around the Bifrost in the MCU films.

It would also tie in with the Marvel's Avengers game coming a week after the new season starts.

We know Virgin Media customers get an exclusive Avengers skin, but maybe Fortnite players will access an exclusive skin which bridges across both games?

It seems unlikely, but you never know!
