Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has been a sensation in the gaming world, but it has begun to run out of content and the fans are desperately waiting for Chapter 2 Season 3! With people stuck in their homes, thanks to COVID-19, there are even more restless gamers out there now.
Technically at this point, we are in Week 10 of Season 2, which is normally a sign that the end is near. Initially, Epic Games confirmed that the third season would release around April end. However, that date since has been pushed back, which leaves us with another month of secret agents and spy games ahead. After we all got somewhat burned by the “never-ending” Season 1, we’ve got a greater amount of information this time as Epic Sames has been much more sound of its specifics.
When is the Season 3 of Fortnite Chapter 2 releasing?
By The Fortnite Team
We’re extending Chapter 2 – Season 2 of Fortnite beyond the original April 30 date. Our plan is to launch Chapter 2 – Season 3 on June 4.”
This isn’t terribly surprising, given the current global situation, and still disappointing. As confirmed by the official website of The Fortnite creators, they have hinted new content coming up in the current Season 2
“There’s lots of content coming in the current Season. We have multiple game updates on the way that will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a couple more surprises up our sleeve! For continued updates on the new Fortnite Season and other plans, we’ll keep you up to speed on our social channels.
See you on the Island!
– The Fortnite Team”
How much will the Season 3 Battle Pass cost?
If you wish to get your hands on the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 Battle Pass, which will unlock all additional rewards, you will have to spend 950 V-Bucks. The smallest bundle, ie. a 1000 V-Bucks will cost you $9.99 / £7.99. This is all you need to unlock the Battle Pass for Fortnite Chapter2 Season 3.
If you are generous enough, you can always decide to gift your friend a Season 3 Battle Pass for a reduced price of $9.49 / £7.49. This is an alternative to using your V-bucks.
You can always decide to boost your start by paying 2,800 V-Bucks (will set you up for around $24.99 / £19.99) and get 25 Tiers of the Battle Pass upgraded in the Battle Bundle.
If you’re wondering how to get free Fortnite V-Bucks without having to spend real money, read ahead…
- Play the PVE mode Save the World, or fetch them from the Battle Royale mode in the free pass.
- As you progress in the main story, you’ll eventually unlock Storm Shield Defenses. These will always reward you with 100 V-Bucks and are a great “re-playable” way to earn cash.
- You’ll unlock challenges, after finishing some early quests, which will each offer you a 50 V-Bucks reward. Often centered around completing certain missions multiple times, such as completing any 3 missions with a cap of 10 attempts.
- Daily Quests also offer 50 V-Bucks each. These objectives are mainly focused on ancillary tasks during your missions, such as destroying a set number of specific objects ( vending machines, trucks, etc.) around the map.
- And lastly, as you fill out the pages of your Collector’s Book, Level 6 milestones will reward you with 500 V-Bucks.
Speculated Skins for Season 3 of Fortnite
With Season 3’s delayed release in the early summer, we can expect to see some summer skins appear.
Sun Tan Specialist and Sun Strider
Wreck Raider and Reef Ranger
A new skin called ‘Spy’ has been teased on the internet, potentially hinting a continuation of the Agency in Season 3.
There is a skin in the files named 'Spy'
It has some relations to the NPC's, could this turn out to be a NPC that will be located to an POI like the other NPC's or will we see it somewhere else, perhaps in the lobby or just as a skin?
Also, we haven't seen that logo before…. pic.twitter.com/TQzwV3voAg
