Fortnite Inventory concept that would make the holiday season a lot more fun

With the holidays fast approaching, the next few weeks are set to be a jolly time for Fortnite Battle Royale and its vast player-base.

Players can expect Fortnite lobbies to be filled to their brink for the next month or so, especially with so many of the younger players on vacation from school.

With the game as popular as very, more and more kids are going to want cosmetic items as presents, rather than actual gifts. 

Reddit user ‘RaphDaPingu’ has come up with a suggestion that could make it even more enjoyable  to play Fortnite during the holidays, which would involve Epic Games unlocking every single cosmetic item for Christmas Day, which is December 25 in the United States. 

“Just for Christmas Day, unlock every single item in Fortnite (including default skins) for everyone,” he wrote. “So we all could enjoy our day playing with the items we always wanted.”

It seems that when the Reddit user says every single item, he means literally every single item, which would include some of the rarest and least seen items in the game, such as the Black Knight and his shield, shown in the image above.

Some of the items, such as the Black Knight skin, can never be obtained again because they weren’t sold in the Item Shop and were rewards for players who reached certain tiers in past seasons’ Battle Passes. 

This holiday suggestion would allow players to use the rarest items, including the Galaxy skin, which is only available to those who purchase high end Samsung Galaxy products.

If this suggestion becomes reality, it would allow many players to don the cosmetic items they would otherwise never be able to, which would be a great gift Epic Games could bestow upon its loyal player-base.

Whether or not Epic would decide to do such a thing remains a whole other question, although it would seem that unlocking every item for a single day wouldn’t really hurt a company that’s bound to make insane revenue in the coming weeks anyway.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
