Fortnite's new Battle Pass launches soon, here's what to expect

Fortnite: Battle Royale kicks off season 3 with a bigger, better Battle Pass filled with spacesuits, skydiving trails, and... loading screens?!

Naturally, this means a new Battle Pass is upon us. The weekly challenges will stack, so you won't have to frantically rush to complete them in order to level up.

Epic Games has unveiled details on Fortnite's upcoming Season 3, as Season 2 draws to a close, with a host of new rewards up for grabs, including the Mission Specialist Outfit and more unlockable cosmetic goodies for your character as you climb the tiers.

You can pick up the Battle Pass for 950 V-Bucks, which is around $10/ £7.99, or you can buy the new Battle Bundle which gets you the Battle Pass and 25 tiers (2800 V-Bucks), at a 40% discount.

The Battle Pass will have a total of 100 tiers to progress through, which is 30 more than last season, but Epic has confirmed that it'll still take around the same amount of time (roughly 75 - 150 hours) to max everything out. Each week a new set of seven challenges unlock, replacing the Season 2 Battle Pass daily challenges. Season 3 will give players access to six outfits, three pickaxes, four emotes and three gliders.

However, the company proactively stated that its teams were "positive that (the fix) will be ready to ship on March 13th". It gave the company its standard 90 days to fix the problem and release a patch before issuing a public disclosure.

Epic Games also provided a brief FAQ for anyone who isn't familiar with the Battle Pass that explains how to purchase it and how to get more loot quicker, all of this seen through the announcement post.

Despite the fact that the Battle Pass is being extended, players won't have to invest any more time than usual into the Battle Pass to complete every tier. You can buy tiers like we mentioned, and each costs 150 V-Bucks.

The Fortnite season 3 release date is Thursday February 22 2018, and the end date is Monday April 30 2018. The Battle Pass looks like it will be space themed as evidenced by the astronaut skin you unlock by purchasing the Battle Pass. "You can choose to go into battle without back bling". Fear not. Epic is introducing two new things that will make completing this Battle Pass take as much time as season two's incarnation. These challenges are also stackable, so don't worry about getting the Battle Pass a bit late etc.
