At the moment, Fortnite cars launch date is one of the most talked topics for Battle Royale. Fans are expecting the new additions excitedly, but when are cars due to come to Fortnite? Here are the most recent news and reports on the Fortnite cars update start date and time.
Fortnite cars is one of the most eagerly expected new features to be available in Fortnite, but fans face an uncertain wait regarding the release date. It had been believed that the Fortnite cars function would go live on Tuesday, July 21st, together with the 13.30 update.
What do we Know About the New Addition?
However, when the date passes, fans were left hoping that the upcoming addition would get here this month. That’s because of the leaked challenge for week 6 of the Season 3 Battle Pass seemed to specifically be created for new vehicles coming to Battle Royale.
That Fortnite challenge was requiring players to gas up a car at Catty Corner, and the leak made fans wonder if vehicles would, therefore, come with the latest challenges. Unfortunately, that expected release date came and went without a Fortnite cars launch, but Epic Games later announced that the feature had been delayed a bit.
On Thursday, July 23rd, the day Fortnite cars had been rumored to be released, the game’s official Twitter posted: “Fender bender? #NoSweat. Run out of gas? That’s not covered. Our lawyers are currently sweating the policy details and fixing typos like ‘otter coverage’ instead of auto coverage. Due to this, many vehicles got taken for inspection. Expect a few weeks until we’re road ready.”
When is the Fortnite Cars Feature Coming?
This looks like the Fortnite cars feature will be available starting with August, and we could have a good idea of when it will go live. The next Fortnite patch is the 13.40 update, which should roll out on either Tuesday, August 4th, or Wednesday, August 5th. Considering the fact that Epic Games teased that the upcoming feature was ‘a few weeks’ away, this sounds like a possible release date.
Fans first received a teaser showcasing the arrival of cars in Fortnite when the Season 3 Battle Pass launched last month. The Battle Pass trailer that got released in June depicted some of the cars that will be coming to Fortnite as it promised ‘new ways to get around.’
The new feature includes a sports car, a pickup truck, a taxi, and a lorry. When Fortnite Season 3 was released, massive swathes of the map were flooded, which didn’t make for perfect driving conditions. Later on, Epic teased that once the water levels reduced on the island, the Fortnite cars feature would be implemented.
On the Season 3 launch day, the gaming studio said: “As time goes on and water recedes even more locations will be uncovered. And as the roadways become more open, you’ll discover new ways to get around.”
If the Fortnite cars addition does arrive in 13.40 update, then it will be included in what could be one of the last significant Fortnite Season 3 patches. Fortnite Season 4 is set to go live at the end of August, so 13.40 update might be the final build before we move to the next season.
