A New Fortnite Leak: More Animals to appear in Chapter 3

A recent Chapter 3 leak reveals that Fortnite will see more fauna added to its world. And possibly more biomes.

Data miners kept snooping around, and they sniffed out another leakage. This time it’s Fortnite’s Chapter 3. As it turns out, a flying animal will be added to the game’s Animalia — a seagull.

Seagulls have been appearing in the game’s teasers previously. However, Epic never really focused attention on them.

At first, this might appear as a minor nuance: seagulls might be just another “living decoration”. However, there’s a secret meaning behind all this.

If Epic is really adding the notorious feathery mafia of the beach to the game, then… They’ll also have to add a new biome.

And a data miner nicknamed HypeX confirms this suspicion. It appears, in Chapter 3 we’ll see a new tropical area, similar to Hawaii or at least New Caledonia, with tall palms and golden beaches.

It’s unknown, however, what meaning this area will have. It may be just a “resort” where players can gather in between matches. It can be a playable area. Or a special event zone where partying can also occur.

Besides, the exact release date is also unknown. Hypex thinks that seagulls will invade Fortnite in Season 1.  

However, even if the model of this tropical Terra incognita really exists, Epic may change its plans for it. A sandy beach zone doesn’t sound too logical if we’re talking about a Chapter that will be rolled out in winter.

At the same time, Fortnite usually doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the climactic ending of a Chapter. As Epic says:

"With The Convergence complete, The Cube Queen prepares her endgame for the Island and nothing will ever be the same"

Fortnite Chapter 3 will premiere on December 5th, 2021. And which animals would you like to see in Fortnite? Let us know in the comments!
