Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 release date

The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 release date was Tuesday, March 16, 2021.

This had an update time of around 9am EST / 6am PST / 2pm GMT. Since the previous season was slated to last 15 weeks in total, we expected it to expire around the second week of March. The current battle pass also expires on March 16, which makes room for the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 battle pass, which we expect will be available for the usual 950 Fortnite V-Bucks.

This set players back $7.99 – however, they could earn a total of 1,500 V-Bucks by completing the Battle Pass challenges each week. You also had the option of buying the Battle Bundle, which cost

Fortnite Zero Crisis finale

To kick off Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, there was a single-player mission that will be available from March 16, loading when you first log into the game from that date. You can also watch this mission in cinematic form if you prefer.

This is the first time that Fortnite has experimented with a solo mission for its battle royale mode, and while it’s linked to the Zero Crisis storyline that’s been building up ever since Agent Jones leaped into the loop back in December.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic

So far, the biggest indication of where things are going in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 has come from Epic themselves. This new comic book series partnership with DC sees the Dark Knight teaming up with characters from the Fortnite universe to return to Gotham after being sucked into a black hole, losing his memory in the process. If anyone can solve the mystery of the Zero Point, it’s the ‘world’s greatest detective’.

The Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point mini-series was released on April 20. So why is this important? Well, there are some skin codes that will be printed in each issue of the comic book series, unlocking various skins to use in Fortnite!

  • The Batman/Fortnite Zero Point comics will be a six-issue physical comic mini-series.
  • Every printing includes codes to unlock in-game items for Fortnite.
  • The first issue includes the ‘New Rebirth Harley QuinnFortnite skin.
  • Getting all six codes unlocked a new ‘Armored Batman Zero’ Fortnite skin.
  • Each issue cost fans $4.99 for the regular edition and $5.99 for the card stock variant.
  • Both the card-stock variant and the regular issues of the comic had the same skins.
  • If you are a DC Infinite subscriber (US only), you could get the comics and codes for free.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 theme

While the islanders managed to contain the Zero Point, reality collapsed in the process, turning the island into a more primitive space. The Season was dubbed Primal, and saw the introduction of animals such as wolves, chickens, and later raptors to the map. Spires also sprouted at various points on the map, each one with a guardian that gave players powerful weapons upon their defeat.

This season also saw more cameo characters join the Fortnite roster, including Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider series, DC Comic’s Raven, and professional footballer Neymar Jr.
