Epic Games officially announced the start date of Season 4 in Fortnite: Battle Royale via a new teaser.
With millions of players trying their luck at obtaining a ‘Victory Royale,’ Fortnite: Battle Royale has grown exponentially in popularity since its release in 2017.
Although the game is ‘free-to-play’ across various platforms, players have the ability to purchase a collection of cosmetic items such as outfits, tools, and other accessories to customize their characters.
While many of these items can be bought via the in-game store, users also have the option to acquire the ‘Battle Pass’ which offers the ability to rank up, with each ‘tier’ providing a new piece of content.
After Season 3 was a massive success, Season 4 has generated a massive amount of hype throughout the community following a collection of teasers from Epic Games which appear to point toward a ‘Superhero-themed’ season.
On April 30th, it was officially announced that Season 4 will begin on Tuesday, May 1st with the ‘Brace for Impact’ tagline still intact.
