The hugely popular battle royale title has kicked off its latest season with a new battle pass, new skins and a v9.0 update, with a huge batch of fresh content including new maps Neo Tilted and Mega Mall.

There is also plenty for the game's dataminers to get their teeth into, and Twitter user FortTory has discovered a set of challenges based on Keanu Reeves' action blockbuster franchise.

It seems players will be tasked with things like collecting coins and dealing out damage with a new combat shotgun, while the challenges reference a new tactical assault rifle.

It also looks like there will be a new limited-time mode called Wick's Bounty, although no further details are available as of yet.

Another leaker Lucas7yoshi has uncovered a cosmetic set - codename 'assassin suit' - based on the film franchise.

Meanwhile, evidence of the crossover with the neo-noire thriller goes beyond datamining, with John Wick's house - which is shown in the first two movies in the franchise - included on the map.

There is no suggested when this will go live, but with 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' hitting cinemas on May 17, it's not expected to be too long until we get more information.
