Fortnite data miners have found an Annual Pass embedded in the v11.30 game files. Here are all of the details we have.

UPDATE: Epic Games reached out to us in a statement and let us know that they have no plans to release a 2020 Annual Pass. They did, however, tease that a long-awaited skin set could finally come to the Item Shop. Read that story here.

The Fortnite v11.30 is the biggest update in all of Chapter 2. We finally have a new POI, some new and returning items, and a renewed excitement for the game.

Of course, an update this large is bound to spring a few leaks. We saw a long list of unreleased cosmetics and holiday variants come out of the patch, along with some unannounced changes that the community is still looking through.

One of the leaks found in the v11.30 game files was the presence of a new Annual Pass. According to @iFirteMonkey on Twitter, this pass will work like a Season Pass from other games. Buying it will grant you access to a year’s worth of content.

You’ll be able to pay once and receive all of the Battle Passes through 2020. The Annual Pass will also include some exclusive skins – at least one of which was cast aside in one of the recent community votes.

It’s unclear how much the annual pass will cost and if we’ll be getting more than just three skins for buying it. Will we get all of the Battle Passes at a discounted rate for buying them early? My guess is that we will.

Will you be buying the Annual Pass when it goes live? Let us know in the comments.
