What to Expect in Fortnite Battle Pass Season 3?
Compared to the past, the developers at Epic games for some odd reason extended the period of the Battle Pass Season 2 by an insanely large period. It was supposed to have way back in February but is still going strong with no sign of new pass.
However, Season 3 will start on June 4th, 2020 and unless it is postponed for an odd reason, the new Fortnite Battle Pass Season 3 will be launched according to schedule. The only problem with it is that people are working from home during this period and it might have a staggered launch.
Most new launches for any competitive multiplayer games end up with lots of bugs and it is up to the developers to fix them with multiple updates. The trend continues for all major launches like Overwatch, Counter Strike and recently, another Battle Royale Call of Duty Warzone. Players often get frustrated over these staggered launches, bugs and glitches but it is something that you should be ready to put up with in the next season too!
While we don’t have exact rumors on the content of the new season, it is expected that PvP will play a huge role. Instead of the ghost and shadow gameplay mode, Epic might launch something new to keep players engaged for months to come. After all, it is what makes the games so interesting with every season and considering the pricing of the passes, you often get great value for money.
The new Fortnite Battle Pass Season 3 will cost similar to the Season 2 pass priced at $9.99. If you are an ardent fan and wouldn’t mind investing more, you could go for the $24.99 pass that costs 2,800 V-Bucks inside the game.
There are so many great ways to earn V-Bucks inside the game and there are different ways using which you can purchase the battle pass without paying a dime. It just requires some dedication, gameplay skills and the willingness to invest your time so as to save your hard earned cash.
