Epic has launched the latest season of Fortnite, Chapter 4: Season 3, titled Wilds. The map has undergone a significant transformation, with the center destroyed and a new jungle area revealed, complete with ruins. Exciting gameplay changes accompany this theme, such as the return of rideable raptors, the ability to grind on vines, sliding through mud for camouflage, and encounters with new plant life and unique weapons like boomerangs and hostile wasp-filled jars.
Additionally, the season features Transformers elements tied to the premiere of Rise of the Beasts, including the Cybertron Cannon and appearances by Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal. Furthermore, a language update has renamed pickaxes as "pickaxes" instead of harvesting tools. This season follows the previous Mega season, which introduced a cyberpunk theme and included collaborations with various brands and artists.
The picture was anticipated to have a good domestic opening in the region of $68 million to $70 million. It premiered with $60 million domestically and earned $170 million internationally in its initial weekend. The movie's production costs were rumored to be approximately $195 million.
While it is hard to establish the actual profitability of the movie based on the available statistics, the robust opening signals a healthy start at the box office. However, other aspects such as marketing and distribution expenditures, as well as long-term box office results, would need to be included to determine the total financial success of the picture.

How To Unlock Optimus Prime
In each Fortnite season, players can expect a fresh new skin, either through collaborations or original designs by Fortnite. Recently, the Tier 100 Outfit has been reserved for collaboration characters, and now, Optimus Prime from the Transformers franchise has joined the battle.
To unlock Optimus Prime in Fortnite, players must reach Page 14, Level 94 on the Battle Pass. Once they reach Level 94, they can spend 9 Battle Stars to acquire the legendary Autobot leader. While it may require some effort, the reward is undoubtedly worth it, even though players won't be able to transform into a truck.
It's important to mention that unlocking Optimus Prime in Fortnite also grants players the Barrage Cannon, a Built-In Emote that turns his right arm into a massive cannon. However, players cannot aim and use this cannon against their enemies.
