Fortnite players are already wondering when Season 5 will begin, even though we are only a month into the current Last Resort season. As we wait to find out if there will indeed be a Season 5 this time around, let's take a look at what we know so far about the potential start date and Battle Pass theme.
According to the Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass information on the Epic Games website and the in-game message, the current season will end on November 3, 2023, at 2am ET. Based on this, it is likely that Fortnite Season 5 will start on Friday, November 3, 2023, following the usual downtime for transition. However, this hasn't been officially confirmed yet.
As for the Battle Pass theme and changes for Season 5, it is too early to predict the exact details. The current season features a heist theme, with the introduction of vampiric Kado Thorne's strongholds changing the island's appearance. Players are currently working on Snapshot quests to assemble an elite heist crew, hinting at a potential epic finale for the season. An NPC named Shimmerdusk has also appeared, possibly setting up a showdown with Kado Thorne.
In terms of new weapons and items, we can expect the usual rotation of items in and out of the game. Fortnite's first-person mode, which has been quiet for some time, may also make a comeback in Season 5.
The cost of the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass is likely to be the usual 950 V-Bucks, which can be purchased in the Fortnite store. For those looking for a head start, there is the option to buy the Battle Bundle upgrade, instantly taking you to Tier 25 on the Battle Pass.
It is also worth noting that players can try to earn free V-Bucks for the Battle Pass, but it is important to be cautious of online scams. Saving up 950 V-Bucks will be enough to unlock the next Battle Pass in November 2023.
As we eagerly await official confirmation and more details about Fortnite Season 5, stay tuned for updates.
