Fortnite Chapter 4 is rumored to launch in December. Here’s what we know so far, based on various leaks and subtle in-game hints from Epic Games.
signs in cosmetics
Several new Season 4 cosmetics include details that point toward the end of Chapter 3:
Although these descriptions may seem generic to Fortnite items, when taking a look at Similar Cosmetics Chapter 2 Season 8 . introduced in It is clear that they are a teaser. The following details were added to Fortnite a month before the Chapter 2 finale was announced:
- page turner Meaning: “Just a second, I’m almost at the end of the chapter.”
- present reality Pickaxe: “This employee has exhausted countless realities. Soon, the island will be joined by them.”
- cubic vortex: “Time is running out for you. Tick, tick, tick.”
The in-game characters, cosmetic details, and even “The Nothing” are heavily mentioned by Epic Games’ chief creative officer, Donald Mustard. Mustard first mentioned The Nothing in October 2021, responding to his own tweet, stating that “everything changes”, to which he responded with “or… nothing”. It was mentioned again four days later in a quote tweet from the Fortnitemares “Wrath of the Cube Queen” trailer, this time capitalizing the word “Nothing”.
Recently, The Nothing was mentioned as part of the Week 1 Paradise Quest in-game. After successfully contacting Paradigm for one of the new discoveries, she says, “I want to keep these broadcasts short, but I’ll send everything I know. Stay safe. And listen, here’s a second chance.” Will not. Nothing is -“. After hearing this, Jones says, “Did he say ‘nothing’? Ya-or-or-or ‘The nothing’, capital T, capital N?”.
Paradigm later says, “If there’s a way through this, we’ll need to know everything about The–. Starting with Chrome. We did some experiments, but you’ll probably need more data.”
Looks like we’ll learn more about The Nothing as Season 4 progresses.
Data miners recently discovered that Fortnite developers are testing a new map codenamed Asteria. Asteria is the name of a Greek goddess, which follows the naming pattern used for the islands in the previous chapter:
- Chapter 1 – Codename Athena
- Chapter 2 – Codename Apollo
- Chapter 3 – Codename Artemis
- Chapter 4 – Codename Asteria?
Interestingly, Epic has never in the past used a Greek codename for anything other than a new map, making it even more likely that Asteria is the name of the island of Chapter 4. The Asteria map is labeled as “S23 Test”. We are currently on Fortnite version v22.00.
Fortnite Cubed . Similarities to
Chapter 2 Season 8, titled ‘Cubed’, brought closer to the chapter’s story through map corruption, an evil character and of course, a massive live event.

Greasy Grove’s Chrome takeover has already been officially teased via the Season 4 Battle Pass trailer:
thank you for leakers, we know that Epic has prepared a live event to take place during the v22.40 update, which is expected to be released at the end of November. Data miners have also revealed that v22.40 is currently planned to be the final update of the season, after patch 23 is due for version.
As always, if more is revealed about Chapter 4, we’ll keep you updated.
