An incredible new reveal trailer for Optimus Prime and Transformers in Fortnite has arrived! But be careful, as this could simply be a Decepticon in disguise.
Fortnite is the king of collabs where the gaming world is concerned. And from Attack on Titan to the Spider-Verse, Chapter 4 Season 2 has a lot of crossovers making their debut.
But could Transformers be the next collab to roll into Fortnite? We’ve got the answer for you.
Is Fortnite Getting a Transformers Collab?
Yes, Transformers, or at least Optimus Prime, is coming to Fortnite in Chapter 4 Season 3.
However, the trailer that’s going viral online, featuring the iconic Autobot on the Fortnite island, is entirely fanmade.
According to a new leak that first appeared on the subreddit GamingLeaksAndRumors, Optimus Prime will be appearing in the new Jungle-themed season.
Reliable leaker Shiina has been able to verify the authenticity of the image, meaning that it’s very likely to be real.
UPDATE: We just got official confirmation from Epic Games that Optimus Prime is coming to Fortnite in the new WILDS season. Check out the character’s official artwork below:
However, before this leak surfaced, the incredibly talented animator FeraalsVFX released this fan-made animation:
Previously, FeraalsVFX also animated an Attack on Titan collab – something that would eventually become real in Chapter 4 Season 2!
And although Eren Jaeger’s Titan form made an appearance in the fanmade trailer but not the game itself, we’re beginning to think that the animator knows something we don’t…
With a new Transformers movie ‘Rise of the Beasts’ dropping on June 9 it makes sense for Optimus Prime to be arriving in Fortnite at last. And the movie’s theme does help explain why he’s turning up during a Jungle-themed season too.
Epic Games has not commented on the presence of the Transformers IP in Fortnite at this point in time.
Is Optimus Prime Coming to Fortnite?
While Optimus Prime is not officially announced for Fortnite, a new leak seems to show the iconic Autobot on the Fortnite island in Chapter 4 Season 3.
There’s no doubt in our minds that Optimus, and the rest of the Transformers cast, would be a great addition to Fortnite.
Not only could Autobots and Decepticons appear in the Item Shop, but as shown in the trailer, they could take the place of real vehicles around the island.
But as with all leaks, we’d take this with a pinch of salt for now.
Before his Attack on Titan video when viral, FeraalsVFX also did a spectacular trailer featuring Ash from Pokemon in Fortnite.
Now that their track record seems to be improving, could Fortnite actually get a Pokemon collab in the future?
