Season 3 of Fortnite: Chapter 2 is officially live. This season introduces a ton of changes and new features to Epic’s hit battle royale shooter, including an Aquaman skin and a new kind of vehicle: cars. However, despite what you may think after watching the Season 3 trailer, the cars aren’t actually live yet. If you want to try out the latest wrinkle in the battle royale game, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer.
Although the vehicles are featured prominently in the aforementioned video, you currently cannot find any cars around Fortnite’s map. That’s just as well; tying into Season 3’s aquatic theme, much of the island has been flooded, so you wouldn’t have much of a chance to make use of the cars anyway, but it appears they’ll become available as the map changes during the season.
According to Epic’s official website, the flood water will gradually recede as Season 3 progresses, opening up new areas and features. Beneath a screenshot of the new car, Epic writes, “As the water recedes, even more locations will be uncovered. And as roadways become more open, you’ll discover new ways to get around…”
In the meantime, Season 3’s first Aquaman challenge is live, and it asks you to use a whirlpool at The Fortilla. A new Aquaman challenge will unlock each week, and only by completing all five will you unlock the aforementioned Aquaman skin.
A lot of other things have changed in Season 3 as well. You’ll need to contend with a new kind of enemy called Marauders as you play, and there are plenty of new locations to discover around the island. The Season 3 Battle Pass is also now live, and it features a ton of new cosmetic rewards to unlock. You can catch up on all the biggest changes in our Fortnite Season 3 roundup.
