The theme of Fortnite Season 3 is obvious: a flood took over the map and it’s slowly receding. There also appears to be an emphasis on fire, although that could be considered an additional game mechanic rather than a theme.
If we’ve learned anything over the past few seasons, however, it’s that the primary theme of a particular season rarely ends up affecting the plot in the way we think. Just look back at Season 2.

We expect the upcoming HighTower event to directly address the crashed spaceship. As was the case with the Ghost and Shadow war, we think the…
