Fortnite Battle Royale: What's in the Season 3 Battle Pass

Each week, seven challenges will unlock, with the added benefit being that they'll stack, so grabbing the Battle Pass halfway through the season will unlock all of the weekly challenges to date. Naturally, this means a new Battle Pass is upon us.

How much will the Battle Pass cost?

Each Battle Pass in Fortnite Battle Royale isn't the same, though, and so chances are you're probably wondering exactly what you get for your hard-earned cash. The Season Three Battle Pass will sell for 950 V-Bucks, Epic's in-game currency (around $10).

Epic is offering a new bundle that includes the Battle Pass and 25 tiers for 2,800 V-Bucks, a 40 percent discount.

Season 3's Battle Pass will consist of 100 tiers this time.

Fortnite's Season 3 Battlepass will also have a brand new theme: Space and will initially offer the Mission Specialist Outfit which will essentially let players run around in a space suit. That's up 30 tiers from Season 2. Epic estimates that players will be able to fully upgrade their Battlepass within 75-150 hours. This could be an emote, new cosmetic item, or even a handful of V-Bucks on top of what you'd usually get without it. In the latest season, Battle Pass can unlock 76 items across 30 tiers, including new items like "back bling" and sky trails. New Weekly Challenges will also be available to complete, so there's plenty to be getting on with.

Epic Games took to Reddit to provide a simple teaser with the above image and the caption "SOON!"

The final update to building is a minor change to how the game's networking works. Epic states that players will still take the same amount of time to complete them all though.

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.

"The more you play, the more you unlock", Epic Games said on its announcement. 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.
