Fortnite Season 5 is here. Take a look at all of the Battle Pass cosmetics included in the new season.

Fortnite Season 5 is here. Take a first look at the new Battle Pass before loading in.

Zero Point – the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass – has finally come to the game. This is shaping up to be the best Fortnite season in recent memory, and we haven’t even played it yet.

The new Battle Pass hasn’t been officially released at the time of writing, but we have a trailer, and a full list of skin sets to explore. Let’s take a look.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass Cosmetics

The Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass brings bounty hunters from all kinds of different realities. Yes, this includes The Mandalorian from the Disney+ series and makes sense relating to the recent Fortnite X Disney+ promotion.

Here are all of the skin sets included in the Season 5 Battle Pass.

We’re excited to jump in and start unlocking these characters. Now, to see what kind of crazy challenges Epic have us doing, this season.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start? Downtime, leaks & more

Fortnite Season 5 is right around the corner. Here’s everything you need to know about when it starts and what it will include.

Published

on

Fortnite Season 4 is almost over. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Fortnite season.

Following the Galactus event, the Fortnite servers went down as players entered into a small, “second black hole.” Thankfully, there’s a timer on this one, and we know how long we have to wait.

Ahead, we’ll give you all of the information we have about the new season, including the start time, leaks, and more.

Fortnite Season 5 Start time

Fortnite Season 5 is only hours away. Initially, when the event ended, we had a seven-hour countdown to the next season.

This proved too good to be true. A few hours later, the countdown shifted to ten hours, putting the start time of Season 5 at 4 AM EST – four hours after the scheduled downtime that Epic announced later in the evening. The initial countdown seemed to be counting to the downtime, not the actual start time.

What to expect

We’re getting more and more information as the hours pass. At the time of writing, we’ve heard two teasers that presumably relate to some new Battle Pass characters and, likely, new bosses.

Last week, the Epic Games store accidentally updated their game icon, and some players were able to catch a glimpse of the new screen. Here, we saw some new characters along with The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda – two characters that have been teased in some of the official Fortnite Season 5 content

For now, the Fortnite Season 5 theme doesn’t seem to be entirely focused on Star Wars, although there’s a chance that we were transported into a Star Wars-based reality.

We expect the map to be considerably different this season – if not an entirely different template. As always, we’ll have to wait and see what happens when the new game goes live.

Fortnite Galactus event: Nexus War start date and time

Published

Nexus War event in Fortnite

The exact date and time for the Nexus War finale in Fortnite has been confirmed, and there is little time to prepare for the Galactus event.

The event, which will bring Chapter 2, Season 4 to a climax, as Galactus – aka the Devourer of Worlds – is bombing towards the map to, presumably, destroy it all.

The countdown to the event appeared in-game on November 21, and Epic have now confirmed the exact date and time when the Nexus War will commence.

“It was only a matter of time.” Epic say in their blog post. “Galactus is closing in on the Island and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance. Join the ultimate fight against Galactus in the one-time-only Nexus War finale event.”

When is the Galactus event in Fortnite?

The Nexus War finale event will start on December 1 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT.

To make sure you don’t miss out, Epic has given some tips to be prepared for the event:

  • DOWNLOAD THE LATEST UPDATE
    If you haven’t already downloaded the 14.60 update, load the game on your preferred device and download today.
  • DOWNLOAD HOUSEPARTY
    Fortnite’s new integration with Houseparty means you can have live video chat in Fortnite (PC, PS4/PS5) while attending the event.
  • GET IN EARLY
    We’ve taken measures to ensure more people can attend the event, but we still recommend everyone log into Fortnite at least 60 minutes prior to the event start. The event playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Of course, even if you can’t play the game yourself at the time, you’ll still be able to catch the action on Twitch and YouTube streams from content creators.

As Epic confirms, this is a one-time-only event, so there won’t be any reruns unlike previous end of season events.
