Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 hasn’t even started but we have a good idea of when it ends already, along with when Season 10 begins.

We’re only two teasers into the countdown to Season 9 but we’ve already been given great insight into the future of Season 9 and even Season 10.

Season 9 will begin this Thursday, May 9 and players are no doubt excited for that, but we can also look further and learn when Season 10 starts, thanks to a PS4 store listing.

When does Season 9 end?

According to a PlayStation Store listing, Fortnite Season 9 will be wrapping up on August 9, suggesting it will be a longer than a usual season as most have run for 10 weeks up to this point.

Seasons have been extended in the past so maybe it’s possible this is either a preemptive extension or it is Epic Games giving themselves some wiggle room in the event of something bad happening. Whatever the case may be, this season will run for 12 weeks.

Epic Games confirmed the World Cup will take place during Season 9 so timeframe does actually line up, suggesting the leaked date could be legit.

With the two week extension, it confirms the World Cup Finals will be played in Season 9, which is probably the real reason for this season being longer.

When does Season 10 begin?

As for when Fortnite Season 10 begins, if the date above is legit then we can expect Season 10 to start as soon as Season 9 finishes on August 1.

There’s not a whole lot of information about Season 10, or Season 9 for that matter, outside of these dates but at least we know when to expect them now.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
