When is Fortnite season 6 starting?

With Fortnite season 5 finally here, bringing with it all its ATKs, time rifts and a brand new Fortnite map, what better time than now to start thinking about what Fortnite season 6 could bring? 

Well we know that it's at least 10 weeks away, but until that date, here's everything we know about Fortnite season 6:

When is Fortnite season 6 starting?

Every season in Fortnite runs for 10 weeks, so you should expect to see Fortnite season 6 starting around September 20. That's exactly 10 weeks after the start of Fortnite season 5, and that currently seems to be the trend. 

Epic Games will start a countdown to the next season soon after this one has started, so we'll update you when there's a more specific date. 

How much does the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass cost? 

The Fortnite Season 6 battle pass is probably set to cost the same as it has done the past few seasons, which is 950 V-Bucks. In order to get that, you'll have to spend some real-world money on the smallest V-Bucks bundle, which costs $9.99 / £7.99. 

Interestingly, Epic has now changed the way it does challenges, which makes not buying a battle pass a slightly more attractive proposition (although of course we're all going to get one, right?). Weekly challenges are now split into two sections, free and Battle Pass. The first three challenges of each week are going to be free, but the other four will only be available if you own the Battle Pass. However, the weekly challenge reward is still locked at four, so you'll have to buy the Fortnite battle pass if you want that sweet reward.

What can we expect from Fortnite season 6?

Seeing as we've only just got confirmation of the Fortnite map changes for season 5, it's going to be a while until we've got any inkling of what is going to happen with Fortnite season 6. However, the fact that already for season 5 we've got the ATKs, new map locations and other unnamed POIs, a whole raft of new skins, toys and more, expect the unexpected for Fortnite season 6.
