LATEST - The Cinematic Trailer Is Live


Ahead of the release of Season 6 Epic Games has released the cinematic trailer for Season 6.

This is actually the Season 5 event and ties both seasons together.

We won't spoil the trailer for you, watch it below because it was crazy.

Event Date


The Season 5 event will take place once the 16.00 update goes live.

It will be mandatory to take part in before players can jump into Season 6.

This indicates that the event will play a major part in the future of Fortnite.

What To Expect

What would a Fortnite season be without an end of season event, and it has been officially confirmed that we will be getting just that, kind of.

In a series of tweets and blog post, Epic Games announced that players will be able to take part in a solo event at the start of Season 6 on March 16th.

Normally an end of season event takes place the Saturday before the new season, so we initially expected a March 13th event.

In a tweet, Epic Games revealed what to expect,

"CH2 Season 6 launches on March 16 with the explosive conclusion of the events of Season 5. You'll play through the culmination of Agent Jones' mission in the Zero Crisis Finale. This is a solo experience & you can play through it whenever you first login during the Season."

This will be the first time we've seen something like this from Fortnite, usually, an event is a cinematic experience that players just sit back and watch, except last season we got to take part in a flying event that emulated the Death Star battle from Star Wars Episode 4.

Players will also be able to watch the experience first online before jumping into it themselves, more details will be shared before the start of the new season.



Batman is expected to play a key role in Season 6, with the Fortnite X Batman Zero Point comic series tying into the season.

The Seven

The Seven look to be returning in Season 6, with the latest audio log referencing them again.


This will be the first time we have seen them since Season X back in 2019.

So far we have seen three members of The Seven in the game, The Visitor, The Scientist, and The Paradigm.

Could we see the fourth member come to the game in Season 6?
