Earn +100 percent match XP from June 29th to July 2nd.
Along with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer PUBG Corp dropping its lawsuit against Epic Games, Fortnite fans have another reason to celebrate. Or should we say “season” – Epic community coordinator Sean Hamilton revealed that Season 5 would be starting on July 12th at 1 AM PST/9 AM BST.
Posting on the Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit, Hamilton noted that a timer for the end of Season 5 was also active in game. To help player earn the last leg of Battle Pass rewards, a +100 percent match XP weekend has been announced. It will start on June 29th, 4 AM EDT and end on July 2nd, 3 AM EDT. Complete challenges, play matches and essentially grind them out.
As of now, there are a few indicators as to what Season 5 could hold. A missile launch of some sort may occur when July rolls around…and that’s pretty much all we know. Regardless, the Season 5 Battle Pass will contain new outfits, emotes, V-Bucks and more. If you saved enough V-Bucks from the current pass, then they’ll help shave the price a bit.
