What To Expect?
Season 4 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is nearly coming to its end. But hey, Season 5 is more than ready to launch very soon. With that, Epic Games has been teasing what’s in store for us with the new Season.
And the post that put the online thread on flame is the countdown teaser of Epic on Twitter. Epic posted a teaser of the Season’s release date with a banner featuring the game’s title and the talk of the gaming community, the mask.
Here’s Epic Games’ teaser:
Since the Studio shared VERY FEW concrete details about the new Season, this leaves the players to speculate what’s up next. And that’s exactly what happened when they posted the teaser. This post stormed a lot of speculations from various gamers around the globe.
One Reddit user believes that the character is a Bastet, an Ancient Egyptian goddess. While IGN assumes this as a reference to the Japanese kitsune or fox. IGN adds up that the kitsune can shapeshift — mostly into human form — and possesses various supernatural attributes.
While the Studio doesn’t tell us much, there are still few things that we can expect. These include new Battle Pass and Skins to unlock! And now let’s get to take a look at these things a little deeper.
Yes, it is confirmed that there will be a new Battle Pass in Season 5. While Epic Games has yet to reveal any information about it, each previous Battle Pass could be bought for 950 V-Bucks. V-Bucks, the in-game currency, in turn, can be purchased neither with a real money or through earned rewards. These rewards are acquired through playing Fortnite’s paid Save the World mode.
In every Season of Fortnite, there are new items to unlock. Well, of course, we can highly expect Epic to continue in that direction. Although the developer has yet to formally confirm any of the new items to be revealed.
We still can get our hopes high for the new skins, emotes, and other cosmetic rewards that can be earned through the Battle Pass.
And fortunately, some trails in the game’s code were found on Fortnite’s Twitter for the new Season. These include the ones called Stars & Stripes, Glitchin’, and Ice. Well, let’s see if all of these will be available through the Season 5 Battle Pass.
And of course, all Fortnite fans are already expecting for potential map changes after the recent rocket launch. After all, this is one of the most notable signs that something big is about to happen.
Everything is about to unfold on July 12. Are you excited for the new Season? Well, we all know that you are itching for the new Season to come.
