Today’s Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 release has been completed and we now know more about the new Battle Pass. As usual, the new Fortnite Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks to buy and includes a number of tiers to unlock. There’s plenty of new skins to claim during the new Fortnite Season 2 run, which is set to last until April 2020.
And a lot of the new designs pull directly from the theme Epic Games has chosen for its new season – that of Spies.
A message from Epic Games explains: “The Island has been taken over by cover operatives – Ghost and Shadow – and its fate is in your hands. Will you join the fight?
“Discover exotic new locations throughout the island! Go off-the-grid and discover new POI hideouts on the map.
“Infiltrate enemy bases, neutralized the henchman guards and face off against their leader to unlock unique and powerful weapons.
“Break into hideouts with secret passages, take out auto turrets and security cameras, and use new gadgets like decoy grenades, proximity mines, and disguises to sabotage rival agents.
“Earn 100 rewards including all-new customization choices like missions that unlock an optional Ghost or Shadow variant, plus new bonus features unique to Battle Pass outfits.”
The big change with Season 2 is the chance to meet new agents at the Hideout to complete weekly challenges, and affect the variants that you can unlock.
These Weekly Challenges are available to everyone but after completing them, the character will present Battle Pass owners with a choice of two sets of Battle Pass Challenges.
“In addition to these agents, you’ll find agent Maya at the Hideout,” Epic Games adds.
“Each week, she’ll give you a new Battle Pass Challenge to help her with. After completing one, you’ll be able to customize a new part of her appearance.
“With all of the choices at hand, there are more than 3.8 million style variants for Maya! Once you make a decision, Maya locks in with your new look.”
And the other big surprise that comes with the new Fortnite Battle Pass is being able to unlock enough V-Bucks to earn the next one for Season 3.
As confirmed today by Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Pass owners will be able to earn 1500 bonus V-Bucks during Season 2.
The dev team has confirmed that this will be enough to buy the Season 3 Battle Pass and a few other cosmetics on top.
The Fortnite season 2 Battle Pass trailer also teased a surprise new skin that will be coming – Deadpool.
It’s unclear if Deadpool will be a reward in the Battle Pass, an item shop skin purchase or part of an upcoming limited time mode.
Elsewhere it has also been revealed that Fortnite season 2 is bringing with it an updated map that features new POIs.
These new Fortnite map locations include The Agency’s headquarters as well as a yacht.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is currently underway and available to download on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile.
