Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 Theme Is Confirmed: Myths & Mortals

Chapter 5 Season 2 has many rumors swirling around it but we now know that it's officially going to have a Greek mythology theme.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is incoming... But when exactly will it begin? Here's everything we know so far about the content and start date of Chapter 5 Season 2. 

Epic Games has revealed that Chapter 5 Season 2 is called Myths & Mortals, with a focus on Greek Mythology content. This includes skins inspired by gods and goddesses, as outlined in a recent teaser. 

In the above announcement, you can see some of what's to come, including skins inspired by Poseidon, Hades, Zeus, and Athena. There's also some new gliders being used in the back. Behind them there appears to be a new POI inspired by historical Greek buildings. Aside from that, however, not much has been officially revealed. 

Here are some things that leakers and dataminers have been predicting for Chapter 5 Season 2: 

  • Battle Pass and store skins will possibly include Ares, Cerberus, Aphrodite, Medusa, Artemis, Ares, Odyssey, Apollo, Hermes, Hephaestus, Persephone, Minotaur, and the ones above
  • Maybe we will see a Hades Mythic weapon that includes a fiery chain and a whip, also hinted at in the teaser
  • Expect possible boss fights against Zeus, Medusa, Ares, and Cerberus that have three stages each
  • Olympus will be a POI on the map
  • God of War collab will maybe bring Atreus and Kratos, going along with the Greek mythology  theme. There may also be a Persona collab
  • There will be monsters to fight who are the gods' "henchmen" in nature

Here are some other interesting possibilities that are rumored for Season 5 Chapter 2. For now, we have to wait for some official announcements from Epic to see what Season 2 has in store.
