The Fortnite Season 3 map is largely underwater at the moment. Based on the trailer, however, we know that the water will recede and that we’ll eventually be able to drive cars on the road. We already have a ton of information about these cars, including the different types, their fuel, and how many will spawn in each match. You can take a look at all of the Fortnite vehicle leaks here.
When the v13.20 update hit, data miners noticed another car-related string in the game files. The code points to a “Chrome Race LTM,” which looks to include some cars that may not be in the base Fortnite game mode.
Data miner @FortTory released some of the files related to the new race. None of it is overly surprising – it seems like a straightforward race. The only strange bit is having “more than one way to win.” It may be a Mario Kart-style race that incorporates some elements of battle.
If Epic does this mode correctly, it could spawn a whole new way to play Fortnite. Fans of GTA Online know that it has some of the best racing in all of gaming. It might be a pipe dream, but Epic could give us some way to progress our racing skills, release more cars, and open the door to a completely new mode, permanently.
Either that, or it will be a fun way to spend a few hours before moving back to Battle Royale. Either way, racing in Fortnite sounds promising. We’ll let you know when we learn more.
