Epic Games Reveals Season 3 Battle Pass Details

Epic Games Reveals Season 3 Battle Pass Details

Much like the way Valve handles its yearly DotA 2 compendium, Epic's Battle Pass system for Fortnite gives you access to a bunch of content straight away, but also lets you get more from unlocking by playing the game. In the latest season, Battle Pass can unlock 76 items across 30 tiers, including new items like "back bling" and sky trails. While the number of tiers have gone up, Epic Games still allotted the same span of time for players to complete the season, which takes around 75 to 150 hours in total to finish.

You can also unlock single tiers for an additional 150 V-Bucks each, but keep in mind the smallest transaction to can make is 1,000 V-Bucks for £7.99 / $7.99. While PUBG is a strong Battle Royale game, it is perhaps a little too serious and as such Fortnite is finding more ground with "casual" players. Coming to both Battle Royale and Save the World. Weekly Challenges stack and can be completed any time before the season ends, so if you buy a pass mid-season you'll still have access to all of the previous Weekly Challenges.

NOTE: Player structures must still be supported by the terrain and other buildings.

New Orchestral Music Score! There's a new turbo building feature, you can now build through nearly anything (move over huge trees) and your materials will auto switch when you run out of the one you're currently using.

"Turbo Building" allows you to hold down primary fire and continuously place the selected building piece (Toggled in the Game options).

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple of days, then you would know that "Fortnite: Battle Royale" just recently had an update that was met with nothing but controversy from fans. From graphics to cosmetics, to guns, players will witness a flurry of new content and upgrades. Previously, when you changed between building pieces that request would be routed through Epic's own servers.

If you hate this kind of pricing, remember that the game is entirely free. Epic's upcoming building improvements seem meant to pick up the pace of construction in order to keep the flow of combat moving.

One of the reasons I think more people are choosing Fortnite is its ease of accessibility and, in addition, the building mechanic.
