Epic Games has confirmed the start date for Fortnite Season 5, which kicks off very shortly.
Epic Games has revealed when Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 will start. In a post on the game’s Reddit page, the company confirmed Season 5 will begin on July 12 2018.It will end 10 weeks later, so that’s September 20.
The Fortnite season 5 Battle Pass will launch on July 12 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and iOS.
Fortnite map changes
Season 4 of Fortnite changed the map significantly by nuking Dusty Depot and turning it into Dusty Divot. As well as that, the Fortnite map has been tweaked over the past nine weeks or so, but the biggest change was the end result of the Rocket Launch Event last weekend.
A rocket was launched skyward before returning to the map, heading for Tilted Towers and then exploding in the sky above Moisty Mire. As a result, there is now a massive crack in the sky, which we’re fairly certain will be the focal point for major changes in Season 5. Moisty Mire isn’t the most popular spot on the map, so it wouldn’t surprise us to see changes there as well as a few other locations on the map.
Season 5 Battle Pass cost
Epic Games seems to have settled on a formula for the Battle Pass for each season of Fortnite. It costs 950 V-Bucks, which is $9.99 and £7.99 in real money.
