The Fortnite Season 6 release is only a week away. Here’s everything we know about the new Fortnite season so far.
Fortnite Season 5 was a return to form for the game, mirroring the popularity of the same season in Chapter 1. The game feels fresh and new again – something that hasn’t been the case for a long time.
Still, fans are looking forward to when the next Fortnite season will begin. Not everything about the new season is perfect, and some players are ready to move on from the quests, NPCs, and IO Guards.
Fortnite Season 6 release date
Fortnite Season 5 will be longer than a traditional Fortnite season, but that’s to be expected. We’re not talking Chapter 2 Season 1 and 2 long, but it will be above average in length.
This is, of course, because the season takes place over the holidays. Fortnite developers are going on break and extending the season.
Fortnite Season 6 is scheduled to release on March 15, 2021. Players still have about a month to finish the Battle Pass at the time of writing.
Fortnite Season 6 leaks & rumors
We don’t have a ton of information about what Season 6 will bring, but there are some rumors that Epic will add weapon and vehicle mods to the game. This could be a huge change, just like the NPCs were this season.
Additionally, we’ve seen some rumors about an added NPC function. According to the leaks, we could be able to sell our loot to NPCs for Gold. We can then use that Gold to upgrade other weapons and buy exotics.
What else will Epic do with the last month of Fortnite Season 5 content? Your guess is as good as ours.
There’s even some speculation that Kevin the Cube will make an appearance before the end of the season. We still have a lot of content to discover, so don’t wish away Season 5 so quickly.
