Fortnite Season 6 will begin later than expected. Epic Games announced that it has been delayed to 27th September. To make up for the delay, those playing Fortnite over the weekend will receive 400 percent XP boost that’s valid until 24th September – 5:30pm IST (2:00pm SA Time). In Fortnite, new seasons bring new themes, challenges, and changes to the game’s map. Fortnite Season 5 focussed on the theme of worlds colliding. With it came some interesting cosmetics such as Ragnarok and FBI skins. With Fortnite Season 6 will come a new battle pass. Here’s what you need to know…

Fortnite Battle Royale Season 6 Battle Pass price is $10 (around R 150,00) which works out to 950 V-Bucks, Epic’s in-game currency for Fortnite. The Fortnite Battle Royale Season 6 Battle Bundle price should be $25 (approximately to R 350,00). If you want every unlock for Fortnite Battle Royale Season 6 Battle Pass without having to earn it, you’ll be paying almost $150 (approximately R 2 200,00). The previous Battle Pass increased the number of tiers, that said, we won’t know if Epic plans to hike it past 100 for Fortnite Season 6.

Fortnite became an e-sports phenomena after last year’s free Battle Royale mode that lets up to 100 players vie to be the last character standing on ever-shrinking terrain. The game passed a billion dollars in revenue in June, after earnings from sales of digital items such as dance moves or avatar outfits climbed seven percent from April to May. Reasons for its popularity include that it can be played for free on a range of devices including smartphones, personal computers and consoles.

With that being said, the game faces increasing competition from the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with its Blackout battle royale mode as well as PUBG on mobile, PC, and Xbox One.
