After a series of endless delays, the big day is finally upon us, as the Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 update is now live. Fortnite matchmaking has also been disabled, and will resume shortly after downtime for the update is over.

As previously rumored, the focal theme for Season 3 of Fortnite is the flood that made its way onto the island during the Doomsday event on 15th June.

With that in mind, here is everything that is new this season.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 trailer

Ever since Fortnite rolled out its first trailer for Chapter 2, Season 3, the community has been in a state of frenzy for a multitude of reasons.

The trailer starts off with Midas stranded in the ocean, and seconds later, the community's beloved Meowscles makes its on-screen debut, seemingly surfing the ocean with his 'pet' shark.

The Engineer, Renegade Raider and Aquaman all make an appearance during the short minute and a half trailer, which you can watch below:
