Fortnite Season 6 is Now Live

Fortnite Season 6 is Now Live

Brace yourselves, the new seasonal event is here.

Downtime for Fortnite Battle Royale has now concluded, and Season 6 has now launched for all Battle Royale players. As soon as you've downloaded patch 6.00 for Epic's game, you're all good to go.

But what does Fortnite Season 6 bring with it? For a start, there's a brand new Battle Pass, which you can see the trailer for just below, which retails for right around $10. It's through this that you can unlock brand new character skins through completing challenges, many of which you can see in the trailer below.

There's also set to be a brand new slate of weekly challenges, for all ten weeks that Fortnite Season 6 runs for. Although we can't yet say if the initial Week 1 Challenges are live right now, there will be three challenges available for all players with or without the Season 6 Battle Pass, and four challenges exclusively for those who purchased the new pass.

Along with Fortnite Season 6 launching, Epic has made some pretty hefty changes to the Battle Royale map, introducing new locations like the Haunted Castle, Corn Fields, and more. For a complete walkthrough of all the new locations in the game, head over to our Fortnite Season 6 new locations guide.
