- The current season of Fortnite, Chapter 5 Season 1, has brought a lot of changes and new content to the game, including a map overhaul and a movement overhaul.
- Leaks suggest that the theme for the next season of Fortnite will be Greek Mythology.
- There may be additional content related to Ninjago for Lego Fortnite as well as possible new movement mechanics.
Fortnite is a mainstay of modern multiplayer games, and for good reason. Fortnite has something for everyone. Collaborations have added characters like Peter Griffin from Family Guy and Goku from Dragon Ball Z, and the game frequently houses themed events inspired by popular media. The title has also partnered up with musical artists, such as The Weeknd, who is currently the featured artist for Fortnite Festival, its new rhythm game mode. There is something undeniably charming about the way that Fortnite has seamlessly pulled together figures from all across popular culture, but recent leaks have shown that its next season’s theme will be looking back into mythology.
Fortnite has a lot more to offer than fun characters. It also provides one of the most polished gameplay experiences available. Currently, the game is in Chapter 5 Season 1, which launched on the 3rd of December and will run until the start of March 2024. So far, this season has brought with it a plethora of changes and new content, including a complaint worthy overhaul to Fornite‘s movement. According to leaks, the game could be experimenting with even more changes to movement in future seasons.

The Unwritten Rules of Fortnite Festival Explained
New players to the rhythm game genre should follow these unspoken rules to succeed in the new Rock Band-inspired Fortnite Festival mode.
Fornite Chapter 5 Season 2’s Theme Has Leaked
Fornite Chapter 5 Season 2 could be Greek Mythology themed according to the well-known leaker Hypex. Recent Fortnite surveys have made multiple references to Greek mythological figures and there are some other indications that this may be the case. Greek Mythology inspired skins could fit into the game’s aesthetic well and, if they prove popular, it could lead Epic to pull figures from other pantheons in the future. Mythology is a rich source of content, so this rumor makes sense, though it should still be taken with a grain of salt. Other leaks have hinted at new content for the game’s other permanent modes as well.
Lego Fortnite Ninjago Leaks
Another set of leaks has indicated that Ninjago could be coming to Fortnite. According to the leaker Shiina, Ninjago themed content would primarily be for the new Lego Fortnite game mode. This crossover, if real, will add a ton of content to the game. The rumored additions include new buildings, new enemy types, and new bosses. Since Lego Fortnite is a permanent new mode in the game, it makes sense that Lego would want to incorporate some of its bigger properties, like Ninjago. These leaks did not suggest a release date, so if it comes to fruition, it could very well be a part of Chapter 5 Season 2.
Could More Movement Changes Come to Fortnite?
Another set of leaks has indicated that more movement changes could be coming to the game. According to these rumors, Fortnite could get a rope swinging mechanic. The leaker Wenso said that this new mechanic would allow players to swing from ropes and chandeliers built into a new iteration of the game’s map. Players will reportedly be able to climb and rappel down the ropes as well. If this rumor is indeed true, rope swinging and climbing could add a lot to the traversal mechanics of Fortnite. It would be unsurprising to see the mechanic added in Chapter 5 Season 2 accompanying a map update if this leak turns out to be credible.
There are a ton of rumors about what the future of the game could hold for fans, but given its success this year, 2024 should be another big year for Fortnite regardless of if these leaks are credible. The rumored content for Fortnite, if correct, indicates that next season could be a big update not just for the Battle Royale Mode but for all the game’s other offerings as well. While these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, if they are to be believed, the next season of Fortnite will be an exciting one for its players.
