Fortnite leaks are making their way around the community as eyes have turned to Epic Games and Apple battling it out in court.

Honorable Judge Yvonne Gonzalez moved Epic Games' case to an in-personal trial on March 2. The trial began today, May 3, where Epic is tasked with proving that Apple's behavior and polices were "oppressive." The two companies have been at odds with each other since Apple removed Fortnite from the Apple App Store on Aug. 13, 2020.

Since the trial's commencement, Fortnite community and content creators have been revealing information and new leaks regarding collaboration details. Whether these plans have been scrapped or put on the back-burner amid the trial remains unknown.

Most notably from the court documents, according to HYPEX, was an "Open World Simulation Sandbox Mode."

Fortnite already has a Creative mode in which players can create their own maps and modes, but this open world aspect would be a game-changing addition. Again, it's unknown if this is currently in the works or is scrapped.

As part of the content drops, HYPEX also tweeted that there were planned collaborations for drops such as a Party Royale event with Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and J Balvin.

HYPEX also showed rumored skins such as Samus Aran from Metroid, The Bride from Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Snake Plisskin from Escape From New York, and even Naruto Uzumaki from the popular manga/anime.

The Naruto Uzumaki crossover, according to Guille_GAG on Twitter, was planned for Season 5 but it hasn't been released yet.

Stay tuned for more information regarding the Epic Games vs. Apple trial.
