Chapter 2 Season 4 has been out for almost two months.

It’s featured some big inclusions to Fortnite including the ability to play as Iron Man and Wolverine!

But it’s time to look ahead to the next Fortnite season, the first on next-gen consoles.

Here’s everything you should know!

Latest News – Patch V14.30 Downtime Confirmed

FortniteStatus confirmed the downtime for the new Fortnite patch will begin at 4:00 am EST, on October 13th.

Release Date

Barring no delays; Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is slated to end on November 30th, 2020.

This means Chapter 2 Season 5 should begin then as well!

Battle Pass

Much like any Fortnite season, we have another Battle Pass for Chapter 2 Season 5.

Inside the battle pass, we’ll have a wide array of skins, emotes, pickaxes, gliders, and (of course) V-bucks!

So, for Fortnite Season 5 expect the same price of 950 V-bucks for the battle pass. Which equals out to around $10 USD, and players will more than likely be able to opt into the Battle Pass Bundle.

The latter will cost 2800 V-bucks and will reward you with 25 tiers of the Battle Pass to start!

Map Changes

Every new Fortnite season implements some sort of map changes; although this past season had minor ones.

We will have to see what Epic has in store, perhaps a return to the old map finally?

Theme

Although it is hard to speculate the future theme for Fortnite’s next season, let’s take a look at all past season’s themes.

Season 1 – Theme = NONESeason 2 – Theme = MedievalSeason 3 -Theme = SpaceSeason 4 – Theme = Super HeroesSeason 5 – Theme = Worlds CollideSeason 6 – Theme = HalloweenSeason 7 – Theme = WinterSeason 8 – Theme = PiratesSeason 9 – Theme = FutureSeason X – Theme = TimeCH2S1 – Theme = DoppelgangersCH2S2 – Theme = The AgencyCH2S3 – Theme = AquaticCH2S4 – Theme = Marvel fortnite peely banana claw uhdpaper com hd 7 2551 1

CLAWS – Who doesn’t love Peely

Trailer

The trailer for this past season was underwhelming to say the least.

Expect the new one for Season 5 to get leaked in the days leading up to the new season.

Skins

Any new season implements an ample amount of new skins into the Fortnite locker.

Expect the same next season; with more news in the coming weeks.

Next-Gen

Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox Series S that will release alongside the Xbox Series X.

We can assume Fortnite will be playable on these consoles along with the PS5 later this year.

Mythic Weapons

Everyone’s ‘favorite’ weapons have become a staple of every new Fortnite season.

We got a wide array of new ones this season; including Dr. Doom’s and Groots.

Groot 3

GROOT – Roll out

The theme of the new season will dictate what Mythic Weapons we get!

Weapons

Likewise, this past season was one of the most drastic loot pool changes we have seen in quite some time

We can expect more vaulting/unvaulting and the addition of new weapons in the future.

Competitive, FNCS & World Cup

Since the cancellation of the 2020 Fortnite World Cup, we know the entire competitive road map for the rest of the year.

Epic Games has outlined the future of competitive events for the next couple of seasons, but we do not know what Season 5 will be.

One can assume Squads will be the game mode for next seasons FNCS!

Leaks and Rumors

As the season draws closer to releasing we are sure to get more news from Fortnite data miners in the coming week.
