Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 kicked off with a bang!
The new event flooded the island, causing old locations and POI’s to be completly submerged.
Midas played a roll in the flooding of the island and it’s unclear how he’ll return.
Remember, there is always the possibility he was eaten by a shark at the start of Season 3…
The recent Marvel teasers may not have anything to do with Midas’ return. But there’s always a chance…
Will Midas return alongside The Joker to fight against Thor and the other Marvel characters?
This would definitely be an interesting twist for Fortnite!
The Last Laugh!
It Seems the Midas charcter will be returning with the Last Laugh Bundle!
As you can see in the image above, Midas is returning alongside The Joker and Poison Ivy in the new Set.
It seems he has a new armour set, possibly to fix the damage caused by the Shark at the end of Season 2!
We can’t wait to see how this new character effects the Fortnite story line!
It’s unclear where Midas went after the Season 3 live event.
We know there are no lo longer Ghost locations around this map. This is the team that Midas sided with, meaning he lost against Shadow.
In the Season 3 trailer, we see Midas fighting with a shark. There is a possibility he died in this, but that is unclear.
There is a boat around the edge of the map with posters of Ghost and Midas, hinting at his return!
Ghost, Shadow and The Authority
It seems the leader of the Authority is now Brutus.
We know this because of the photo that can be found in the office of the Authority.
Shadow now run the island, from the Head Quarters of the Authority.
This location and Point of Interest has been saved as it was walled off before the flood.
For now, Ghost seems to be gone.
Luckily, the Midas skin is still in the game even with the characters absence.
There have been no changes to any of the variants of the Midas skin that hint at the characters return.
As this skin was tier 100 in the Season 2 battle pass, it probably isn’t going to change or be removed from players’ locker.
It seems Season 3‘s focus will be on clearing the flood, and Aquaman somehow saving the island.
There are many leaks pointing towards the new “Atlantis” POI, but this will likely be closer to Season 4.
Season 4 Delayed?
Unfortuneatly, there is a chance Season 4 will be delayed due to a recent Lawsuit from Apple and Google.
This lawsuit came after Epic changed the payment method on the respective App stores.
Epic have said this lawsuit won’t effect the release of Season 4, but there’s always a chance other factors will effect the release.
