New Map

We all expected Galactus to destroy the Chapter 2 map, he is the Devourer of Worlds after all.

However, the Marvel heroes managed to save the day and the Chapter 2 map remains.

But, that doesn't mean there aren't changes that have been made.

Battle Pass

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.

CHAOS: Agent Jonesy has gathered warriors across all realities to fight in Season 5.

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+.

The Mandalorian is the flagship show of Disney+ so this could further draw attention to the platform.

Crew Pack

In a blog post the Crew Pack was officially revealed by Epic Games, after having been leaked recently.
