Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Start date time skins and rewards news for Battle Royale

While the progression system style remains intact for this upcoming season, Epic has added 30 new tiers as well as even more loot.

Season 2 Battle Pass owners do not automatically gain access to the new Pass, but Epic will be selling a limited time Battle Bundle offer for season 3's launch, which costs 2800 V-Bucks and gets you the new Battle Pass with the first 25 tiers instantly unlocked.

The second season of Fortnite: Battle Royale will come to a close tomorrow, so many players have obviously been asking about the third season for a while already.

Epic Games had originally planned for Fortnite season 3 to launch on Wednesday February 21.

Fortnite Season 3's Battlepass will cost 950 V-Bucks, which works out at about $10. Single tiers are also available for 150 V-Bucks each.

Further details on the Battlepass can be found over on the Fortnite website. Levelling up, effectively, will get you new outfits, weekly challenges, and more.

Once you have bought the Battle Pass you will receive a number of rewards instantly and can then continue to unlock more by progressing through the reward tiers by playing the game. You can complete all 30 tiers to unlock all the items, which Epic estimates to take around 75-150 hours. Epic Games probably decided that they needed to do something to appease the fans so they chose to put a beloved character in the game to say sorry to the gamers for their mistakes with the new update.

While fans will have to wait one day extra to start their Fortnite season 3 campaign, they have been dealt some great news which will soften that blow. Apart from the standard Outfits, Pickaxes, Emotes etc. you'll be able to unlock new types of collectibles: Back Blings, Skydiving FX Trails, and Loading Screens.

Epic Games announced the dates for the season in a Reddit comment and we're sure it has been announced elsewhere as well. Update 3.0.0 lets you "place structures right through large objects, meaning you can now build pretty much anywhere at anytime".

Players can expect to see a new blitz mode which will mean shorter matches, making the speed that you move around the map even more crucial.
