Some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games will add another DC crossover to Fortnite in the form of new Weasel and King Shark skins from The Suicide Squad.

Epic Game haven’t been hesitant about introducing more crossover skins in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. Among these are some popular DC characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

It seems the Fortnite developers aren’t done with DC just yet, as some new leaks are pointing to the arrival of two anthropomorphic characters from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.

King Shark from The Suicide Squad in Fortnite

According to notable Fortnite leaker Shiina, Epic Games might be currently working on some Suicide Squad skins to introduce in a future update. The game files had codenames for two characters.

The first one is ‘SeesawSea,’ which likely refers to the character of King Shark. The second codename is ‘SeesawFuzzy,’ and this might be for a Weasel skin since he was the fuzziest character in the movie.

Considering the critical praise that the latest DC film is getting, it’s understandable why Epic Games would want to capitalize on this opportunity, as they recently added a Bloodsport skin to the game.

Earlier this month, Shiina also provided a look at some new sprays featuring the Suicide Squad characters. These included Bloodsport, Harley Quinn, Polka Dot Man, King Shark, and Peacemaker.

Interestingly enough, King Shark had the codename ‘SeesawTeeth’ in that post, whereas this new one suggests that he’s listed as ‘SeesawSea.’ So, it’s possible that it might be referring to another character.

Epic Games have yet to officially confirm whether or not King Shark and Weasel with arriving as new skins, so take these leaks with a grain of salt. That said, those two wouldn’t be the most surprising additions.

We’ll keep checking for any developments regarding their arrival, and will be sure to update you. For more Fortnite, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out how to complete Week 11’s Epic Quests.

Fortnite Creative 2.0: Unreal Editor release window, features, leaks, more

Here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s upcoming Creative 2.0, the next evolution of the extremely popular Creative mode.

Fortnite Creative 2.0

Fortnite’s Creative mode is almost as popular as its Battle Royale, and its about to get a lot more advanced with the upcoming Fortnite Creative 2.0. Here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s Unreal Editor including what it is, its release date, and the leaks surrounding it.

Fortnite Creative mode allows players to create their very own experiences inside Fortnite, using assets to build their Creative Island any way they like. Other players can join these islands and earn XP while doing so, and player-made experiences are almost as popular as those created by Epic.

Fortnite Creative is about to get a major overhaul with Creative 2.0, giving players much more freedom to create whatever they like inside Fortnite.

Creative 2.0 shouldn’t be far away, so here’s everything we know including its release window, its Roblox-like monetization, and leaks surrounding it.

What is Fortnite Creative 2.0?

Fortnite Creative 2.0, also known as the Unreal Editor for Fortnite, will be the evolution of Creative mode, allowing the community to build their own games inside Fortnite. This is set to give players much more freedom over what they create, with popular insider HYPEX claiming that it “makes Creative look basic.”

Speaking to Fast Company, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said that Fortnite Creative 2.0 will allow players to “build very high-quality game content and code . . . and deploy it into Fortnite without having to do a deal with us–it’s open to everybody.”

Similar to Roblox, Fortnite’s Unreal Editor will allow creators to monetize their content. “We’re building an economy,” explained Sweeney. “It will support creators actually building businesses around their work and making increasing amounts of profit from the commerce that arises from people playing their content.”

Fortnite Creative 2.0 release window

Fortnite Creative 2.0 is set to arrive at some point in 2022, likely in the final few months of the year.

Tim Sweeney gave an update on June 28, saying that Creative 2.0 is “Still on track for this year, but not ‘soon.'” So it’s unlikely that Fortnite Creative’s major overhaul will arrive during summer, but we could see it towards fall or winter.

HYPEX believes we’ll see it during Chapter 3 Season 4, which is set to go live in September 2022.

Fortnite Creative 2.0 leaks & rumors

Epic Games are reportedly gearing up to bring a Dead by Daylight crossover to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know, including all leaked cosmetic skins and rumors.

Epic Games have added numerous crossovers that have brought new cosmetic skins to Fortnite, from popular fictional characters like Indiana Jones and Spider-Man to real-life celebrities like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

We’ve also seen crossovers with other popular video game franchises, and some new leaks suggest that Fortnite’s devs are currently planning a collaboration with survival-horror game Dead by Daylight.

Fortnite x Dead by Daylight leaked cosmetic skins

On June 26, prominent Fortnite leaker ‘Shiina’ tweeted that an anonymous source sent them images of a new Llama Charm as well as a new cosmetic skin of Meg Thomas from Dead by Daylight.

According to the leaker, this crossover “might happen soon” and would add new cosmetic items for both games. Dead by Daylight players will be able to earn the Llama Charm, and the Meg Thomas skin will arrive in Fortnite.

Rumors of this crossover were sparked by Twitter user ‘McNeil Racing77’ who shared a few images on June 9, claiming that Dead by Daylight characters had been spotted in a Fortnite survey.

These mentioned the names of David, Dwight, and The Legion from the horror-survival title, and it’s possible that they might all be added to Fortnite as part of the same cosmetic bundle. Interestingly, Meg Thomas wasn’t mentioned in this leaked survey.

While this all seems exciting, it’s worth keeping in mind that this information has yet to be verified by the developers of either game, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until there’s an official announcement.

We’ll keep checking for more leaks and information about the Fortnite and Dead by Daylight crossover, including the release dates and additional cosmetic items. Once we learn more, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite leak claims skateboards coming soon as new movement mechanic

A new leak has emerged, suggesting that Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 will add a skateboard and skating mechanic.

According to new Fortnite leaks, Epic Games are planning to add skating mechanics and a new skateboard vehicle in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3.

Epic Games brought plenty of new content for players to explore in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, including the addition of the Indiana Jones cosmetic skin and new mechanics such as Runaway Boulders.

The developers always keep the game fresh with new content, and a new leak suggests that they’re currently working on a new mechanic and vehicle that will be introduced in Chapter 3, Season 3.

Fortnite character sliding

Notable Fortnite leaker ‘HYPEX’ claims that Epic Games are developing new skating mechanics that will make way for the addition of skateboards or roller skates in the battle royale title.

The leaker stated that this new mechanic will be similar to the in-game sliding, as you’ll be slower when going uphill and faster coming down. If this leak is accurate, then players will have a new way to get around the map.

Another leaker with the name ‘InTheShade’ tweeted a gameplay video showcasing this new mechanic in action. While the video is obviously just a rough test, it shows the Fortnite player sliding across the map without crouching.

The character also moves faster when going downhill and is able to kick the board to pick up some speed. Moreover, it seems like jumping from heights with a skateboard will allow you to avoid heavy fall damage.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear if this mechanic will actually make its way into Fortnite, as this information is based purely on leaks. We’ll need to wait for Epic Games to confirm whether or not players will be able to skate in the game.

The developers have added skating-themed summer cosmetics in the Item Shop before, so it would make sense for them to add skateboards as well as a new POI that resembles a skate park.
