Fortnite is no stranger to epic crossovers, and Season 8 has seen its fair share of familiar faces. According to a new leak, fellow gaming giant League of Legends will be the next property making its way to the island.
Even more excitingly, if a new leak is to be believed, gaming icon League of Legends is also heading to Fortnite very soon.
This latest news comes from well-known Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR on Twitter, who claimed that the popular LoL champion and villain Jinx is the next new face to join the island.
The leaker didn’t specify an exact date for when Jinx will be added to the game, although they did say it would be “next week” in their tweet on October 30.
It’s a collaboration that would line up with the release of the League of Legends Netflix series Arcane, which is due out on the streaming service on Saturday, November 6, 2021, so expect the skin to drop sometime around then.
Jinx is set to play a starring role in the new show, voiced by Ella Purnell from Army of the Dead, so it makes sense for her to make the jump across video game universes.
It remains to be seen whether this latest crossover will be a bundle to buy from the in-game store, or whether or not Jinx will play a bigger role on the Fortnite island.
Collaborations like this in the past have occasionally come with themed Quests to complete and new locations to discover.
Fans of the ridiculously popular MOBA will be hoping that even more League of Legends characters, such as Lux or Ezreal, can join the party in the future.

The Rock teases major Fortnite role ahead of Chapter 3
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival in Fortnite ahead of the launch of Chapter 3 of the battle royale.
With Fortnite Season 8 coming to an end, popular celebrity Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival to the battle royale in a new video ahead of the Chapter 3 launch.
Now, it seems that Epic Games might be planning to bring in another major celebrity to the battle royale, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson appears to be teasing his arrival in Fortnite.
The Rock set to play Fortnite’s The Foundation
This is a character who is the leader of a group known as the ‘The Seven,’ that have been in the game since Chapter 1 and were also a part of the Fortnite x Batman crossover comic book.
The Rock’s fridge contained The Foundation’s helmet in plain view. He also used some key Fortnite terms like Zero Point, Higher Ground, and Foundation.
Dwayne Johnson’s appearance in Fortnite has been teased before, and it seems that this crossover is finally happening.
Ever since this tweet went live, Fortnite fans have been speculating about whether or not this confirms The Rock’s arrival in the game. While some players are excited, others are a bit disappointed that The Foundation is a crossover character.
“I low-key wish The Foundation wasn’t The Rock,” tweeted one user. “I wanted him to be an original character.”
Although extremely likely, it’s worth keeping in mind that Dwayne Johnson hasn’t officially confirmed his arrival in Fortnite just yet.
It’s entirely possible that this could just be part of a joke. Hopefully, we’ll get an official announcement from him or Epic Games soon enough, and we’ll be sure to update you when that happens.

Leaked Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer gives first look at new map
A teaser trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 has been leaked through TikTok, giving players a first look at the new map.
It appears that Epic Games has accidentally added a Chapter 3 trailer to TikTok early, which gives us a look at the new map.
Fortnite is set to receive one of its largest updates yet with Chapter 3 in December. This will start a brand-new storyline, introduce plenty of new mechanics and NPCs, and of course, bring a new map.
The End event isn’t set to begin until Saturday, December 4, but it appears that Epic Games accidentally added the trailer to TikTok early. Although now removed, it’s still out in the wild, giving the first look at the Chapter 3 map.
Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer leaked
Of course, If you don’t want spoilers for The End event and Chapter 3 that follows, don’t read on any further.
Now onto the trailer.
In this short teaser trailer, we can see Agent Jonesy is washed out to sea off the coast of the Chapter 2 island. We then see the island completely flip over, revealing the Chapter 3 map on the other side.
This is presumably after The End event following the Cube Queen’s defeat. The Tsunami that hits Jonesy will likely mark the beginning of the downtime, but we’ll need to wait until the event to know for sure.
Some believe that this trailer teases that they’re bringing back the Chapter 1 map. We can’t see enough of it to confirm, but the desert biome spotted has led to speculation that Paradise Palms will make a return.
There has been some debate over whether this trailer is real, but it appears to be legit. Known leaker iFireMonkey confirmed that “the video IS real,” and they’ve used the TikTok account as a source before.
Leakers say they’ve been asked not to leak any Chapter 3 details during downtime between seasons, so we’re unlikely to know much more about the new map ahead of its arrival.

How to get Fortnite Nick Fury skin: S.H.I.E.L.D Set bundle & price
Fortnite has added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin, and here’s how you can get your hands on the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.
Epic Games have added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything you need to know about the new S.H.I.E.L.D Set, including the price.
Fortnite has done multiple collaborations with Marvel in the past, with Carnage and Venom joining in Season 8, and the Season 4 Battle Pass consisting of superheroes. Spider-Man is also rumored to be arriving soon.
Epic Games aren’t done with Marvel characters just as Nick Fury has been added as a brand-new skin for players to unlock in Fortnite, complete with his own back bling, glider, and bundle.
Here’s how you can add these to your inventory.
How to get Nick Fury Fortnite bundle
Nick Fury is the director of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D and works closely with the Avengers. Epic Games added his outfit to the Fortnite Item Shop on November 26, and you can also get the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.
Here’s everything in the S.H.I.E.L.D Set:
- Nick Fury outfit
- F.I.E.L.D Pack Back Bling
- Director’s Scythe Pickaxe
- First-Strike Infiltration Glider
- Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen
Fury has played a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and his Fortnite skin is based on his appearance in those. The Back Bling is included with the outfit, but you’ll have to purchase the Pickaxe and Glider separately.
Fortnite Nick Fury bundle price
Nick Fury’s outfit and Back Bling bundle cost 1,500 V-Bucks while the Glider and Pickaxe cost 800 V-Bucks each. Alternatively, you could spring for the whole S.H.I.E.L.D set for just 2,000 V-Bucks.
This costs the same as a Legendary skin includes all of these items, making it one of the cheapest bundles in the game. You can then equip the Nick Fury outfit as you battle Sideways Cube Monsters.
This bundle is an exciting addition for both Marvel and Fortnite fans. Epic Games might introduce even more crossovers before Season 8 ends, as there are other popular franchises that they can collaborate with.
