The lastest Fortnite season is finally underway and it is already being viewed as a refreshing change to the fairly dry season we had before.

The theme of the season is centred around ‘Team Shadow vs Team Ghost’ and we cannot wait to see how the story between the two factions plays out!

As we know, Fortnite fans are always looking ahead and we already have a confirmed start date for the next Fortnite season, Chapter 2 Season 3.

Let’s take a look at the future of Epic’s battle royale and dive into all we know about Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3!

As soon as Chapter 2 Season 2 was officially released, some clever data miners such as HYPEX and Lucas7Yoshi uncovered a specific date within the game files!

The start date for Chapter 2 Season 3 is April 30, 2020! Fans won’t have to slog through a 3 month season this time around, which means Epic Games could be looking to pick up speed again!

Battle Pass? Cost?

BANANAS! – Agent Peely reporting for duty!

Much like any Fortnite season, we can expect a battle pass for Chapter 2 Season 3. Inside the battle pass, we can expect a wide array of skins, emotes, pickaxes, gliders and (of course) V-bucks!

So, for Fortnite Season 3 expect the same price of 950 V-bucks for the battle pass. Which equals out to around $10 USD, and players will more than likely be able to opt into the Battel Pass Bundle.

The latter will cost 2800 V-bucks and will reward you with 25 tiers of the Battle Pass to start!

New Weapons

MYSTERIOUS – What kind of storylines will the two agencies have in store for us?

Like any Fortnite season, this is when Epic Games tends to go all out when it comes to adding/removing weapons into the game.

This season was no exception, as we now have multiple classic weapons back in the game and were surprised by the vaulting of spike traps as well.

THE AGENCY – These are some of the coolest variants we have ever seen!

This season’s theme is “The Agency” throughout the season you will have the choice to choose different styles for all the battle pass skins!

We can assume that the story between these two factions is going to evolve during the season and could play an evident role within the next season.
