Leaked PCB Challenges in Fortnite might be a South Korea exclusive

It looks like the mysterious PCB challenges that leaked with Fortnite’s V6.22 update might not be available for players in all regions around the world.

While Fortnite players are well accustomed to the various challenges presented to them on a weekly basis, the newest set of challenges to leak were quite the head-scratcher.

Most challenges only pertain to things that can be done in-game, but the PCB Challenges looked to have players play Fortnite at “a participating PC Cafe,” making them incredibly unique to Fortnite.

Thanks to Reddit user ‘DrillDriver,’ however, new light has been shed on just what’s up with these brand-new challenges. 

It turns out that the sign on the side of the new Keyboard King store says ‘PC방,’ which is the name of a chain of Korean PC gaming cafes that translates to ‘PC Bang.’

As DrillDriver explains, Fortnite hasn’t yet been released in South Korea and is set to release on November 8, which could make this one elaborate tie-in for new players in South Korea.

Adding further credence to this theory is a marketing campaign spotted in South Korea that features actor Chris Pratt.

While in South Korea for the League of Legends World Championship, Darin Kwilinski, Senior Editor of ESPN Esports, caught a glimpse of the campaign by way of a sign on the side of a bus.

Additionally, DrillDriver took to a different Reddit thread (that has since been deleted) to translate a TV commercial featuring Chris Pratt that explains the special event.

Given that gaming cafes aren’t very common in many areas of the world, this could all very well point to the PCB challenges being a collaboration with the gaming cafe chain to celebrate the game’s release in South Korea.

Of course, none of this has been confirmed by Epic Games, but with the event reportedly due to kick off in a couple days, the wait for official confirmation shouldn’t be too long.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
