Despite the controversy that surrounds it due to similarity to another famous battle royale game, Fortnite Battle Royale has been enjoying a massive success ever since launch. Setting a new record, Fortnite overtook PUBG with 3.4 million CCU in comparison to the latter’s 3.2 million CCU. That aside, season 2 of Battle Pass is ending later this week. Are you ready for a new season? We’re heading to space for Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass!
What Is Battle Pass?
If you’re new to Fortnite Battle Royale, Battle Pass in an optional purchase to the otherwise free-to-play game. Upon purchase, you’ll be granted assess to a tier program that rewards you the more you play the game. Other than that, you’ll also be rewarded with a batch of in-game rewards. For Season 3, you will be getting the new Mission Specialist Outfit, a spacesuit. There isn’t a new page for Season 3 yet but you can still check out the Season 2 page if you want an insight of Battle pass right here.
What’s In Season 3?
In comparison to the previous season, the new season will have more tiers. Despite Season 3 having 30 more tiers. The developers assure players that they can complete this given the same amount of time they put into Season 2. On the average, Season 2 has been accomplished by players in the span of 75- 150 hours. If you simply don’t have the luxury to pour that much time into it, you can still get these rewards. You can opt to purchase tiers for 150 V-Bucks each. Or, if you’re impatient and has big bucks to drop, there’s a new battle bundle. The new Battle Bundle comes with a Battle Pass plus instant unlock to your next 25 tiers. This will cost you 2800 V-Bucks. That’s a 40% discount right there since 25 tiers bought separately will normally cost you 2750 V-Bucks.
Tier Up With Weekly Challenges
Fortnite is introducing a new way to help you tier up faster with Weekly Challenges. This feature is essentially replacing Season 2’s daily challenges. There will be a new set of challenge each week. And, the good news is, these missions don’t expire. That means you can hold on to them as new set appears each week. Just make sure to get them then before the season ends! Players only need to complete at least four out of seven challenges to unlock rewards. Another plus side to these challenges – you’ll still have access to previous challenges even if you purchase a battle pass mid-season.
We’re also guessing that, just like the previous tier, players who choose to opt out can still get a reward or two. In Season 2, a glider, some emotes and banners were given free to players. So if Battle Pass is not your thing, that’s completely fine. Just enjoy the game, it’s free-to-play and cosmetics won’t affect gameplay!
