Fortnite’s Season 5 is soon coming to an end, and the gaming community already can’t wait for the next season. We still don’t know yet what will be the concept or theme of the new season. There have been appearances of the zero orb(Fortnite Zero Point) in the game, which may have a major role to play in the upcoming season. Agent Jonesy is still racking up the universe’s greatest hunters, Ripley and Xenomorph from the Alien universe being the most recent addition to the roster, so an epic showdown could be on the cards soon.
Season 5 was one of the longest seasons, which lasted for 15 weeks. In that time, Agent John Jones, a member of the Imagined Order organization, traveled to different realities to recruit hunters with the goal of stopping anyone from escaping the Loop through Zero Point. Every week the game saw a new hunter from all the famous culture universes such as Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Marvel, Halo, etc.
What to expect in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6?
There hasn’t been any official declaration by Epic Games about the season’s theme, but it is almost certain that the zero orbs will close up in the new season. The current season revolves around closing the Zero Point, but what will happens once the Zero Point closes? this is probably what we will see in this season. If you have played this season regularly, you may have noticed a giant ball in the center of the map. That thing is known as the Zero Orb.

There are two main ways to reach there. One is, you can land somewhere and run to the center of the map. After that, you can build up all the way to the Orb, which is at a good height. This method has a disadvantage. Others can easily spot you and knock out your tower or kill you. The second way is the easiest but will take some skill to execute. You can directly glide towards the Orb after jumping from the Bus. Fortnite’s collaboration with Marvel was a huge move that saw a lot of positivity from the fans all over. So we may expect another crossover with the MCU.
There are a lot of rumors going around regarding the theme of this new season. One of the biggest and the most believed rumor is of the Batman/Fortnite collaboration. Epic has announced a new comic book series with DC.

The new comic book series partnership with DC sees the Dark Knight teaming up with characters from the Fortnite universe to make a comeback to Gotham after being lost in a black hole, which resulted in his memory loss. There are also two confirmed skins in the upcoming season, and they are the Rebirth Harley Quinn and Armored Batman Zero. So these skins also incline with the rumor.
Details on Battle Pass
Purchasing the Battle Pass is always rewarding as it gives you extra rewards. If you want to get those extra rewards, then you have to shell out some cash. If you plan to unlock all of the additional rewards it provides, you’ll need to spend 950 V-Bucks. The smallest bundle of V-Bucks consists of 1,000 and will cost you $7.99, which is all you need to unlock the Battle Pass. This doesn’t feel enough? You can opt for another option that will give you a head start over other people by purchasing the Battle Bundle.
The Battle Bundle has 2,800 V-Bucks. It will cost you around $19.99 for a 2,500 (+300 free) V-Bucks bundle, which is exactly how much you’ll need to get a head start. In this bundle, you will already get 25 tiers of the Battle Pass included. If you don’t want to shell out cash, then the other alternative is hard work. Fortnite gives V-bucks as rewards in the game, but they don’t come by easily.
If speaking about what you will get in the Battle Pass, then the answer is; we don’t know yet. The battle pass of the current season included a whole bunch of Marvel Superheroes such as Thor, She-Hulk, Groot, Storm, Doctor Doom, Mystique, Iron Man, and Wolverine, and of course The Mandalorian and The Child. They are the biggest attraction of the current season. The battle pass content depends on the theme, so ultimately, we have to know the theme first.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Release Date
The biggest question of all. When does the new season release?. The answer is no one knows yet. Season 5 finishes on 15th March, so everyone is expecting a launch on 16th March. But 16th March falls on Monday, and Epic Games don’t usually launch a new season on Monday. So maybe the launch could happen on any day in that week. Epic Games also has a tendency to delay the launch of the new season by a week or so. This means that there will likely be a delay of one or two weeks.
We will be the first ones to let you know about any development regarding the new season. Till then, enjoy the current season at its fullest and earn as many V-bucks as you can.
Tell us if you are excited for the new season and what your theories are for the theme of the next season.
