‘Fortnite’ Season 6 Introduces Pets and Skins
So much loot to get
Fortnite’s gigantic Season 6 update has arrived and is now available across all platforms. With the new season comes a new Battle Pass, now overflowing with 100 levels and more than 100 rewards to claim as your own. The new rewards include Pets, allowing players to have an extremely adorable friend watch their back when they drop in to claim their victory.
Additionally, players can embrace the darkness with the mysterious new Shadow Stone consumable and they can explore an updated map that includes floating islands, a spooky castle, and more surprises. The new update comes with a sort of sci-fi Halloween theme, though the mysteries of the Season will be unlocked as more and more players discover them. Epic Games released a promotional video for all of the new content coming to the Battle Pass and fans can watch that promotional trailer below.
Even with the overstuffed Battle Pass, it will only cost you 950 V-Bucks in Season 6. Players can level up their Battle Pass to unlock Bonesy, Scales, and Camo, and the developers stated that “new critters that will join you on your journey across the map,” meaning the pets. The devs described the addition on YouTube adding, “These passive companions are always by your side, reacting to different situations you find yourself in.”
Fortnite is still the reigning champ when it comes to online gaming, with more players than ever before. Sony recently announced that cross-play will be coming to PS4 and a new Beta will test out the bugs before it goes live for everyone. Over on the Xbox One side of things, Microsoft announced a new Xbox One S bundle that includes exclusive skins and free V-Bucks for players.
