The most recent Fortnite update, v13.40, brought us a ton of leaks that point to what the future of the game will hold. We already covered the 30+ new fish types found in the game files, but they weren’t the only new concept that was included in the patch.
Data miners also found mention of a “ComicReader” in the files. This would, naturally, suggest that readable comic books will be heading to Fortnite in the near future.
We have more than just a line of text, however. Apparently, those who switch accounts on Xbox (and possibly PS4) will be greeted with a glitched cut-scene. Obviously, this is not meant to be in the game, just yet.
We can see where the new comic books will be located in the Battle Pass tab, as well as what will happen when you click on them. What will these comic books hold? Well, we have some clues as to that as well.
Will these comic books be original content? We’re sure that some of them will, but we also have some leaks that point to actual comic books coming to Fortnite. Right now, they appear to be Marvel Comics.
Data miner, Hypex, has been spearheading these leaks. He was able to use the blurry photo of a Fortnite comic book to find out the actual comic that they came from. This one appears to be a Thor comic.
With all of this information available, we’d be surprised if Epic didn’t release comics before Season 4. Likewise, we expect the Season 4 secret Fortnite skin to relate to the in-game comics.
All of this points to Thor being the potential Season 4 secret skin. Fans were already theorizing about this when they saw what Captain America left behind in his release trailer – a glyph that looked strikingly similar to Thor’s glyph from one of his films.
Of course, this is only speculation. For now, all we know for sure…
