Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass Introduces a Whole Bunch of New Epic Loot to the Game

In spite of a rather poor reception at launch, Fortnite quickly managed to become one of the most popular multiplayer games of the year thanks in no small part to its Battle Royale mode. If you’re still on the fence when it comes to PUBG, Fornite Battle Royale is arguably the best alternative out there. And unlike PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Epic Games’ take on the genre is completely free. That said, if you do want to spend a bit of money and get some extra stuff you can certainly do that as well by getting the Season 2 Battle Pass.

Fornite’s Season 2 Battle Pass was recently made available and comes with a whole bunch of new cosmetic items that you can use to make your character look prettier. The pass will set you back 950 V-Bucks, which comes in at around $10 or your regional equivalent. You can’t outright buy the pass with real money so you’ll have to get some of the in-game currency first and then spend that on the pass. According to the official website, however, the current price is a limited time offer. Once the deal expires, the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass will cost 1800 V-Bucks.

As for its contents, the Battle Pass unlocks a number of items right off the bat and offers players the opportunity to earn even more throughout the season. The Battle Pass includes more than 65 cosmetic items that will be unlocked gradually. To unlock more rewards simply play Fortnite Battle Royale to level up the pass. Epic Games mentions that getting the Battle Pass all the way to max level can take anywhere between 75 to 150 hours of play. Alternatively, players can also choose to spend some more of those V-Bucks to buy levels. But where’s the fun in that? The season lasts for more than two months which should be enough for most people to get all the rewards simply by playing the game. Fortnite Season 2 kicked off today and will last until February 20, 2018.


If you’re not interested in the pass it’s worth pointing out that Fortnite already offers a lot of cosmetic items for free so make sure to give it a try and decide for yourself if you want to invest in the Battle Pass or not.
