A new announcement about the location and date for the Fortnite World Cup has seemingly revealed that the game’s tenth season will impact competitive play.

When is the Fortnite World Cup?

On April 8, Epic Games announced that the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center’s Arthur Ashe Stadium, in New York City, has been chosen to play host to the upcoming Fortnite World Cup on July 26-28.

However, in the announcement, Epic also let slip a few key details about Fortnite Season 10 before players have even had a chance to finish up with Season 8, which still has a number of weeks to run, or dive into the upcoming Season 9 – of which the theme and details are still up in the air.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite World Cup is set to be absolute peak for competitive battle royale play.

What has Epic announced about Season 10?

In Epic’s announcement about tickets and the location, they revealed that all ticketed fans who attend the three-day World Cup event will receive some free V-Bucks in addition to the Season 10 Battle Pass. The exact amount is unknown, though. 

Ticket holders must be in attendance to claim the free gifts – meaning that players can’t simply buy tickets linked to their main account, receive their rewards and watch the action unfold from the comfort of their own home. They have to make the trip to Flushing, New York.  

When does Fortnite Season 10 start?

While the release dates for Season 10 or Season 9 are yet to be confirmed, it seems possible that the World Cup may fall between the changing of the season. If so, that could have major implications for the game’s meta – with new weapons, items, and possible vehicles being added.

While a number of pros have spoken out in the past about Epic making such significant changes during events, it seems as if their calls may have fallen on deaf ears – despite the developer’s previous promise to not have big changes overlap with tournament dates. 

It remains to be seen if Epic respond to clear up any possible concerns about having their major event falling between a game-altering set of updates.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
