Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is finally here!
After an epic live event yesterday, which saw the Marvel heroes defeat Galactus, it is now time to jump into the new season.
Season 5 Story Trailer
The Marvel heroes may have defeated Galactus, but that doesn't mean that the Fortnite map is saved.
The Zero Point is once against causing chaos in the world of Fortnite and Agent Jonesy is on hand to try and fix it.
Check out the Season 5 Zero Point Story Trailer here:
Players can expect to pay 950 V-Bucks (£7.50 / $9.50) for the Battle Pass.
Over the course of the current season, you are able to earn enough Vbucks to purchase the Battle Pass for Season 6.
Along with the standard Battle Pass option, there will also be the Battle Pass Bundle option.
Season 5 won't be a themed Battle Pass and will instead go back to original Fortnite characters.
The Battle Pass will feature 7 new characters, including Star Wars' The Mandalorian.
In addition to the Mandalorian, Baby Yoda/The Child will be the back bling for the skin.
This wouldn't be the first time that Epic Games has collaborated with Star Wars.
In December 2019 a Star Wars event was held to promote the release of Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker.
Star Wars is owned by Disney, like Marvel, which is likely the reason for the heavy focus on both the Star Wars and Marvel franchises.
There is also currently an offer where players that purchase V-Bucks in-game will receive 2 free months of Disney+.
Each month players will receive,
- Battle Pass Included for the full Season - As a member of the Fortnite Crew, you’ll always have access to the current season’s Battle Pass!
- 1,000 V-Bucks Each Month - Fortnite Crew members will receive 1,000 V-Bucks every month. Spend it on your favorite Item Shop content!
- Get A New Monthly Crew Pack! - Get an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, an always-new Outfit Bundle that only Fortnite Crew members get.
The first Crew Pack skin is called Galaxia and will also include the Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe and Fractured World Back Bling.
