Fortnite Chapter 2 Battle Pass Details, First Look At New Cosmetics

by Liana Ruppert

With Fortnite Chapter 2 now live and week 1 now officially in season, players may be wondering what sort of epic gear awaits at the end of that massively tiered tunnel. To celebrate the fresh start, the team over at Epic Games has shared a new trailer showing off their latest Battle Pass and it gives us our first look at what’s new in terms of shiny new cosmetics. 

Players can scoop up th Battle Pass for 950 V-bucks, the game’s currency, and earn up to 1500 V-bucks just by playing! That means you can earn the next Battle Pass, or use it for some in-shop goodies. Up to you! 

As for the challenges themselves:

For those that may be new to the world of Battle Royale, these weekly challenges are a set of quests that Epic Games has given to participants looking for a different way to level up and climb up those tier ranks. The goal essentially is to get all of the Battle Stars so that players can unlock progressive loot to show off to others. Get that sweet, sweet gear and show everybody else who is boss.

Fortnite is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android players. Are you ready for Fortnite Chapter 2? Sound off with all of your thoughts regarding Fortnite and the Battle Pass challenges over on Twitter @PrimaGames!
