The Fortnite team broke down what Season 3 will bring us, and there are a lot of new things coming to Battle Royale. Specifically, it's shared the improvements to building that it's making for Battle Royale and Save the World, including some new options that should create a more pleasant experience all around.

As well as items seen in the previous battle pass, brand new items have been added including back bling, skydiving fx trails and loading screens. The Season Three Battle Pass will sell for 950 V-Bucks, Epic's in-game currency (around $10).

Season three's Battle Pass will be space-themed, so it's rather fitting that Epic has made a decision to take their loot system to new heights by adding thirty new tiers to it. Sounds like we'll have to play a lot more to get the real goodies, doesn't it?

Weekly challenges will remain active for the entire season, however, so latecomers will still be able to get everything.

Alternatively, you can buy the Battle Bundle, which includes the Battle Pass plus the first 25 tiers, which costs 2,800 v-bucks (around £17/$25). As Polygon highlights, you'll need to spend around $150 if you want everything without having to play at all.

The Battle Pass gives players the chance to unlock new cosmetic items to customise their in-game character without having any impact on the gameplay.

It's worth reiterating that everything in the Battle Pass is purely cosmetic and won't have any impact at all on your in-game performance (no pay-to-win here).

Season 2 wraps up today, February 20 with Season 3 beginning immediately afterwards.

Unlocking these perks takes serious time, but the inclusion of stackable, persistent Weekly Challenges further lightens the load. Epic Games says this is against the layout of the survival video game and should be prevented.

A major update is arriving to "Fortnite" later this week and will greatly affect close-quarters combat. Epic states that players will still take the same amount of time to complete them all though.

First, players who buy the Season 3 Battle Pass will instantly receive several rewards, including the Mission Specialist Outfit.

The SMG has become the first weapon to be moved into the vault, meaning it is no longer available to use in the game.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now.
