In an exciting new development, it looks like Optimus Prime, the iconic Autobot leader, might be making his way to the popular battle royale game Fortnite. If the rumors are true, players could soon be teaming up with or battling against one of the most famous robots in disguise.
The speculation started with a recently leaked image from Fortnite’s forthcoming season. The image hints at a Transformers crossover event, which would not be the game’s first foray into collaborations with popular franchises. Fortnite has previously hosted crossover events with properties like Marvel, Star Wars, and, most recently, Rick and Morty.
Famous Fortnite leaker Hypex has also weighed in, suggesting that players might expect to find a desert and a volcanic area in the new season along with the tropical biome. For dinosaur enthusiasts, the prospect of rideable raptors with a stamina meter is also exciting. And for fans of the feline physique, summery Meowscles and Mechanic skins are reportedly on the horizon.
The alleged leak is just among a slew of rumors circulating about Fortnite’s upcoming Chapter 4 Season 3. Some players are speculating that this season will introduce a tropical biome. This theory is based on a jungle-esque backdrop seen in the leaked screenshot, which could provide an exciting new environment for players to explore and compete in.
