UPDATE: Cars in Fortnite have finally arrived.
Fortnite cars were something that was teased at the very beginning of Chapter 2, Season 3, but they took quite a while to actually arrive. Epic Games has now told us they’re getting ready to put driveable cars into the game starting Wednesday, August 5th.
The event is being teased at the Fortnite Joy Ride update, and features a number of selection of cars.
One of the teasers for the Joy Ride Update features a semi-truck, hinting that we could be able to drive the large automobile. This would be in line with the teases near the start of the game that also showed a semi-truck driving.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 is here after a long wait, and one of the biggest questions is if gamers will be able to drive cars.
Epic Games released a pair of trailers for Fortnite to announce the start of Season 3. One was simply advancing the story of Fortnite while the other told you what was new in the game. We’ll be focusing on the second one, which is called the Battle Pass trailer.
In this trailer, a voice can be heard narrating the scenes and at one point says there will be “new ways to get around” while footage shows people driving in cars.
Fortnite has had driveable vehicles in the past such as the golf cart, the quadcrasher, planes and helicopters. But all of these were the same type of vehicle. In the trailer, you can see people driving all variations of cars from regular cars to trucks and even a semi-truck.
But if you launch your game up right now and try to drive a car … well you can’t.

Where are the cars in Fortnite?
The cars can be located throughout the map, but unfortunately the ability to drive cars in not yet in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3. The trailer clearly indicates at some point this season you will be able to drive cars, you just can’t do so right away.
“Throughout your adventure, there will be new areas to explore. New ways to get around and hot new surprises,” the trailer claims.
Epic Games has not stated exactly when you will be able to drive cars and trucks, but did provide some clues.
“As time goes on and water recedes, even more locations will be uncovered,” Epic Games states. “And as the roadways become more open, you’ll discover new ways to get around.”
So at some point in Season 3, the water will die down and you’ll be able to drive around in various vehicles. The cars will be a welcome edition once they’re added. One of the biggest complaints since the launch of Chapter 2 has been the lack of mobility. Now with boats, helicopters and all these cars there will be plenty of ways to get around the map.
