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.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
