According to several leakers and data miners, the new season of Fortnite will be themed around Greek mythology, including a skin codenamed “Odyssey” and one that looks to be modeled around the three-headed canine that guards the underworld.

Data miners like @ShiinaBR, @FNChiefAko, and @FBRFeed got to work right away digging into the new update’s files, finding evidence of all of the above, plus more, including a skin that seems to be themed around the goddess Athena.

The imagery of ancient Greece and Greek mythology alone is enough to get fans excited, especially for new POIs on the map, potential Mythic weapons, and encounters or teases of the pantheon of gods like Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, and more.

The theme also opens up the door for Greek mythology-adjacent collaborations like the return of Kratos from God of War, Zagreus from Hades, and maybe even Disney’s Hercules in light of the mega-company investing big cash in Epic Games.

The first season of Fortnite’s Chapter Five featured several collaborations including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Solid Snake and Raiden from Metal Gear Solid, and The Weeknd as the Fortnite Festival featured artist.

Season two has already confirmed Lady Gaga for Fortnite Festival, and more information about the upcoming season will likely trickle out over the next couple of weeks.

Currently, Chapter Five, season one is scheduled to end around March 8, so season two may begin on the same day. With a little less than two weeks to go, we should learn more official information about the upcoming season and all of its content very soon.
