Some Fortnite players report receiving mysterious in-game audio clips when starting up the game that may be tied to Chapter 2 Season 3’s imminent launch.
ShookPA’s footage shows the game loading, then displaying the main menu for a brief flash before the entire screen goes black except for a prompt in the bottom right to press a button to leave the screen. While the screen is black, what sounds like the ocean can be heard faintly in the background.
The ocean sounds could align with an image posted to the PlayStation Store that suggests the map could be flooded in Season 3.
Epic Games remains quiet about the changes coming to Fortnite. The in-game event known as “The Device,” which many expect will change the map significantly, takes place June 15 at 2 p.m. ET. Chapter 2 Season 3 itself begins June 17 following multiple delays.
