Fortnite season 2 entered its tenth week yesterday, with a slew of new challenges, rewards and more on the horizon from Epic Games. The developers have released the new content ahead of the incoming season three, which has now been pushed back due to COVID-19.
When is the new season 3 start date?
Epic Games originally scheduled Fortnite season 2 to end in just over a week on April 30, with fans clamouring for a release from the COVID-19 lockdown.
The new season will bring a swathe of content, with weapons, skins, items and more.
However, people will need to wait much longer than expected, with the season now due to land more than one month later.
They followed a similar pattern with the latest season, as Marvel character Deadpool made an appearance earlier this month.
The Merc with a Mouth’s presence has spawned a selection of X-Force themed skins and items with the latest update.
Battle Pass holders can still clear themed challenges and unlock the Deadpool and Deadpool Unmasked skins.
Season 2’s extension would give people another month to complete many of these challenges, alongside any other outlying in-game responsibilities.
Epic Games is yet to reveal any details about what to expect from the third season of chapter 2.
However, as with every season, players can expect another upcoming battle pass, which includes any V-Bucks, skins, gliders, pickaxes and emotes.
People can pick up the second season battle pass for 950 V-bucks, and the Battle Pass bundle goes for 2800 V-bucks.
Players can expect the same prices to apply when Epic Games eventually releases the third season.
