This could be official news that has dropped, rumours or leaks that have surfaced recently and today, we got a few of each for you.
All sources for everything covered will be mentioned in their respective sections.
September Crew Pack Skin Revealed
She is both infinite creation and infinite destruction. Astrea has joined the Fortnite Crew and I must say that this may be the best Fortnite Crew skin that we’ve received in a long time.
The reveal trailer for her does a good job of setting up what type of character she is and maybe it could be a tease into what we could expect from the story of Fortnite.
Astrea will become available in the Crew Pack starting August 21 2023, just days away from her being a permanent part of our lockers and Fortnite history.
If you don’t already know, all you have to do to get access to her is subscribe to Fortnite Crew and you’ll gain access to her, 1000 V-Bucks, the latest Fortnite Battle Pass and the Rocket League pass too.
This Crew Pack comes with the Astrea skin which outfit styles (Astrea and Nebula), and two hairstyles (short and long), it also comes with a music pack called Stars Are Born which Twitter user iFireMonkey has posted, so you can take a listen to it over there.
Astrea also comes equipped with a back bling called Voidheart and a pickaxe called Voidback Slasher. Here’s a quick look at her lobby pose and her pickaxe animations.
With a new season update having just dropped a couple of days ago, means a whole bunch of leaks come with it and we’ll be showcasing them all here. The first leak is what seems to be a new UI for the Fortnite menu that we could be seeing soon.
Unrealhybrid from Twitter was also able to give us the first look at this season’s Starter Pack and the next Save The World pack that we’ll be getting.
The starter pack is named Extinction Code, it comes with the Haxsaur outfit, Hacktop Back Bling, Rootkit Hammer Pickaxe and your usual 600 V-Bucks. It isn’t showing a price but you can expect it to be the same price that it always is.
I’m personally a fan of dinosaurs so the look of a robot one ticks off all boxes and I’ll be securing him to take along my heists.
The new Save The World pack is named Untask’d Courier. There are currently no details on the items inside except you will receive an outfit, a back bling, a pickaxe and challenges that will reward you with 1500 V-Bucks.
This wasn’t the only thing that Unrealhybrid was able to leak, they were able to showcase all the outfits, back blings, pickaxes, gliders and emotes that were in this update and will be in the item store sometime before the next update hopefully. Take a look at them below:
The last thing that Unrealhybrid was able to leak recently was the upcoming EMP grenade which as you can see in the video above, can stack up to 6 and stop the briefcase turret for 25 seconds.
This could easily all change once it officially releases. Once this does come out, it’ll completely change the meta and balance out the crazy loot pools that people are getting at the start of the game thanks to the bases.
Thanks to iFireMonkey we also know the weekly challenges for Week 1 and Week 2 and I’ll list them down below for you, these should help you prepare just in time for when they arrive:

Have You Heard The Rumours?
Now for the final segment of Zero Point News, rumours have been going around on what could be released in Fortnite in the near future. There are two big rumours right now going around the Fortnite community that relate to new and returning collaborations.
The first is TMNT. The turtles in a half shell are rumoured to be coming to Fortnite and there is some evidence thanks to ShiinaBR and leaksxdefiant on X formerly known as Twitter.
There seems to be a big encrypted PAK, a mysterious “FungusNinja” set, Fall Guys have recently added TMNT and the Pizza Party will be unvaulted soon just like how the Lever Action Shotgun got unvaulted when Terminator got added to the store.
The second rumour is for FORTNITE X MY HERO ACADEMIA. LeafsMatrix who leaked both Ahsoka Tano and Khaby Lame before their announcement has also revealed that Todoroki from My Hero Academia will be added to Fortnite at some point in the future.
That’s all the news for this edition of Reality Zero News. So in conclusion we got, a new crew pack skin incoming, new outfits and items coming to the item store sometime this update, a new emp outfit, a new starter pack and STW pack, and the future weekly challenges for Week 1 and 2 and finally the rumoured TMNT and MHA collabs.
