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. There are also 30 more reward tiers for Season 3, making 100 in total, while simply purchasing the Battle Pass instantly unlocks a batch of in-game rewards.
The season 3 Battle Pass will cost you 950 V-Bucks, which you can earn either in Battle Royale and Fortnite's single-player Save the World mode, or acquire through investing around $10/£8 of your own real world money. Seven new challenges will unlock each week, but we'll only have to complete four of them to unlock the rewards.
Fortnite Battle Pass is a purchasable feature for Epic Games' popular Battle Royale title that rewards you with in-game goodies, experience and currency the more you play.
Season 2 wraps up today, February 20 with Season 3 beginning immediately afterwards. Thankfully, when Epic Games chose to take out the gun, a replacement was provided with a bang - the Impulse Grenade. With all of the fun skins and updates that have come and gone, it's not unusual to wonder what could possibly be next. Epic Games has said they have adjusted the XP gains to allow players to still complete this Battle Pass in roughly the same time it took to complete the Season 2 one.
The Fortnite team broke down what Season 3 will bring us, and there are a lot of new things coming to Battle Royale. Anyone who purchases the season pass will be granted a bunch of content up front too, so if you want to be one of the first with all the new outfits, you know what you have to do: whip out that wallet.
In an official announcement, Epic Games noted that it takes user feedback seriously and uses them as the basis for any game development.
If you hate this kind of pricing, remember that the game is entirely free. The third season of the game is the next big update that's expected, and it will introduce an entirely new way to play it: in space.
It's likely that Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be two games that are forever linked thanks in large part to the controversy stirred up by the PUBG developers as well as both games breaking massive player numbers on their respective platforms.
