It appears that Xbox has updated its Dashboard too early by mistake, accidentally revealing details about Season 5 in Fortnite.
An advertisement has appeared on the Xbox One Dashboard earlier than expected, providing the first glimpse at what appear to be some of the skins that will be available in the game’s upcoming Season.
Images of the ad began surfacing on social media on July 11, with Twitter user ‘_7Jamesbown’ tweeting out these images.
The character in the middle, closest in the foreground, is holding a mask that looks very similar to the one that Fortnite tweeted out on July 9 as a teaser for Season 5.
The other two skins are not similar to anything seen or leaked before, and do not offer real clues as to what lays in store next Season.
Leaks are commonplace when it comes to Fortnite, but are usually not the result of errors like these but are rather discovered and shared after data miners sift through game files following a major update is released.
With Season 5 schedule to launch on July 12 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET. this advertisement, assuming that it is legitimate, will have gone live nearly 7 hours earlier than intended.
We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.
As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.
Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.
From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.
Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.
You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.
The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.
One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.
To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.
