Fortnite Season 5 is a week away, but a batch of leaks and a major announcement just gave us a ton of information about what the upcoming Battle Pass will include.
According to these leaks, we’re getting a Mandalorian skin, a Baby Yoda back bling, and a “Crew” subscription that offers exclusive skins. Let’s get into the leaks and information.
Mandalorian & Baby Yoda
Finally, after two Fortnite X Star Wars crossovers, we’re getting a Mandalorian skin in Fortnite. More importantly, we’re getting a Baby Yoda back bling – what could be the most-requested cosmetic item to date.
We don’t know for sure, but most fans who saw these leaks immediately assumed that the Mandalorian would be the Season 5 Battle Pass “secret” skin, similar to Deadpool, Aquaman, and Wolverine.
The next Battle Pass probably won’t include an entire Star Wars theme but will contain some new skins with this fan-favorite combo coming when you complete some specific challenges.
The Crew subscription came as an official announcement from Epic Games ahead of Season 5. It was leaked a few minutes early, but Epic quickly responded with a blog post, outlining exactly what the new “Crew” subscription will inlcude.
First of all, they confirmed that Season 5 will drop on December 2, smashing rumors of a 36-hour downtime. This season will include the first Battle Pass to be included in the “Crew” subscription for $11.99 per month.
The subscription will give players 1,000 V-Bucks per month, an exclusive monthly Crew Pack, and access to the current season’s Battle Pass. With the Battle Pass already costing $10 (950 V-Bucks), this seems like a good deal for at least a month or two.
Epic have confirmed that Galaxia, shown in the video above, will be the first exclusive skin in the Crew Pack. It’s a cool and sweaty skin, so we’ll probably see a lot of signups as Season 5 releases.
