Brand new challenges have arrived in Fortnite’s 12.60 update. Here’s an overview of the Storm The Agency challenges and the rewards you’ll get upon completion.

Epic Games continues to push Fortnite’s in-game narrative ahead as the battle royale gets set for its major Season 3 update.

The latest batch of challenges in v12.60 will land you 120,000XP along with three brand new unlocks. Here’s everything you need to know to complete the new Storm The Agency challenges in Fortnite.

Five objectives are tied to the latest batch of challenges. As usual, players will be trekking all across the map in order to complete them.

To net your first 40,000XP all you have to do is land at The Agency. Be prepared for dozens of enemies to drop at this hotspot as everyone else looks to complete the challenge as well.

Hatches play an important role in the latest challenges.

Next up, Storm The Agency challenges require players to survive 10 Storm Circles. This should be simple enough for players of any skill to complete across a handful of games without really trying.

The third challenge will award a brand new ‘Steel Shadow’ pickaxe in place of experience. To unlock the rare item, you’ll have to open three faction locked chests at different Spy Bases across the map.

Swimming over a single hatch at The Agency will net your last 40,000XP, while taking down three Henchmen at different Safe Houses will provide a new Icon. Once all five challenges are complete, the ‘Shadow Stalker’ Glider will be unlocked.

These tasks will only take a few games at most and reward a ton of XP. They should come in handy for anyone looking to complete their battle pass progression as the season begins to wind down.

There’s no telling just where the storyline is headed as Season 3 comes around, though Midas and his Doomsday Device certainly seem to be playing a big role.

Fortnite Crew membership allows players to get the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins and other monthly benefits for a set price. The list of rewards will update each month, but it’s made a promising start to kick off Season 5. 

Epic Games have confirmed that the new system will come into action alongside the game’s first major update of Season 5. Instead of having to purchase individual skins from the Fortnite Item Shop like usual, the developers are offering guaranteed rewards to Crew members that cannot be obtained any other way.

Monthly subscriptions have been all the rage since Netflix rose to prominence, but now many major players in the gaming world have followed suit. Xbox has its Ultimate Game Pass, for example, and now Fortnite’s creators have come up with their own.

Let’s run through what’s included.

Fortnite Crew membership price and start date

One of the most important factors in a player making up their mind about buying Fortnite Crew will be the price. The full price list can be seen below, for various currencies:

  • $11.99
  • £9.99

This looks to be pretty reasonable, if you consider the Battle Pass is usually $9.50 anyway. Aside from that, it’s also worth noting that the Fortnite Crew membership won’t be available until December 2, which is when Season 5 launches.

What’s included? (December 2020)

The Fortnite Crew outfit pack for December will include skins and cosmetics unobtainable in any other way.

According to an official blog post from Epic Games, the Fortnite Crew membership will include the following:

  • Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass
  • An exclusive monthly Crew Pack
  • 1,000 V-Bucks each month

These rewards will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included in the skin pack, though based on how obsessive the community has become over skins and cosmetics, it will likely be a popular event to open it each time.

They said in an official statement: “Monthly Crew Packs always contain a new Outfit along with at least one accessory. All items are exclusive to Fortnite Crew members.”

How to get Fortnite Crew rewards

The Fortnite Crew rewards will differ slightly month on month, in terms of what’s included in the Outfit Pack.

Epic Games have confirmed all you have to do, once you’re all signed up, is log into your Primary Platform each monthly subscription period to access your subscription content. This will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included, though generally the V-Bucks and Battle Pass will be guaranteed.

Is it cross platform?

In a series of frequently answered questions, Epic Games have confirmed a player’s Crew account will only work for their primary platform. For example, if you sign up for the Crew on Xbox One or Series X|S, it won’t carry over to PlayStation 4/5.

On the subject, they have said: “Your Subscription is associated with the platform on which you purchased it (your “Primary Platform”) until it is canceled and is not transferable. Be sure to choose the platform (e.g., Xbox, PlayStation, Switch) you purchase your Subscription on carefully. You’ll be able to access the items you receive from the Subscription across different platforms, but the V-Bucks you receive may not be redeemable on other platforms.”

We will update this every month and add new details about Fortnite Crew rewards, as and when that information is made available.
