Everything we know about Fortnite Season 9

Published

on

Fortnite Season 9 is only a few weeks away, which means a new battle pass, new skins, big map changes, more creative mode tools, and three more months of begging Epic to make Team Rumble a permanent game mode. I just can’t build like the kids do. A new season on the horizon means it’s also time for a couple weeks of in-game teases and events.

So while we creep towards Fortnite Season 9’s release date, I’ll be following the progression of in-game events and collecting all the facts here, all the while sprinkling in a bit of healthy speculation. 

This time I won’t be duped into another Water World theory, I promise. 

When does Fortnite Season 9 start?

With just a few weeks left in Season 8’s weekly challenge schedule, Fortnite Season 9 could start on May 9 at the earliest. Epic has previously extended seasons for weeks at a time, so don’t take that as a hard release date. 

With the Fortnite World Cup encroaching, I wouldn’t be surprised if Epic fudged the schedule to better accommodate a busy competitive lineup. 

How much will the Fortnite Season 9 battle pass cost?

Expect the usual 950 V-Bucks, or around $10. 

What kind of map changes can we expect?

Since Season 7 and Season 8 gave the map some thematic and geometric symmetry with its icy mountains and fiery volcano, I’d expect some action at the center or southeast quadrant. Some early theories suggest Dusty Divot will fill in with magma. I believe it, though I’m expecting bigger changes at Salty Springs, which has remained relatively untouched for Fortnite’s lifetime. 

Excavators dug up a huge vault at Loot Lake, and strange runes appeared that players toyed with until they flew away to the vault, acting as keys it seems. There’s just one left and it’s positioned in the mouth of the volcano. If players drop items into the lava below, it contributes to a meter visible within the runic image. 

Finishing it off will likely kick off the next stage of the in-game events teasing and leading up to Season 9. 

What’s more difficult: beating Dark Souls or getting a Victory Royale?

All I know is that I’m more scared of a sweaty soccer skin Fortnite player than I am of any Dark Souls boss. 

What’s Fortnite Season 9’s theme?

The secret battle pass characters usually point towards the events and conditions of the following season, but as a big fiery demon guy, Ruin doesn’t tell us much at all. More fire and more lava are in the cards for sure. Beyond that, I’m expecting more cube stuff. Loot Lake is where Kevin (the big purple cube) was laid to rest. And Kevin was also into runes. 

Any new vehicles?

Impossible to say, right now. I’ve tried to speculate in the past and failed miserably. Since the latest vehicle was a giant hamster ball with an attached grappling hook, I’d say anything is possible now. I’ll take a wild guess just because: pogo sticks. Why? Why not?

What’s coming to Fortnite Creative Mode in Season 9?

That depends on what new environmental assets and items arrive with Season 9. With previous seasons, most of that stuff gets dumped right back into Creative Mode, so expect to have plenty of new stuff to experiment with as soon as Season 9 hits.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

on

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
