Fortnite season 6 launch set for next week, 400% Battle Pass XP in effect through weekend

Celebrate Fortnite's upcoming new season throughout the weekend and get ready for brand new shenanigans.


While the previous two seasons of Epic Games' Fortnite were preceeded by significant clues that gave us a strong idea of themes to expect, teases for season 6 have been a bit more abstract. The huge cube, which has recently melted into a bouncy purple lake, has been the biggest mystery and we're not much closer to solving it. We are, however, now aware of the launch date of Fortnite season 6: September 27, 2018.

The tweet above is pretty plain and straightforward, not giving any additional hints toward the theme of this upcoming season. Nevertheless, it is only a week away and we'll be here at Shacknews reporting on all the big changes. Stay tuned!
