When is the Fortnite season 10 release date and when will season 9 end? It’s an important question if you’re one of the millions of Fortnite players who clock in every day to collect Fortnite Fortbytes and tick of daily challenges, as the Fortnite season 10 release date also heralds the end of the season 9 battle pass. So it’s good to know how much longer you’ve got to complete all of your challenges, progress those customisable Fortnite skins, and uncover the mystery of Bunker Jonesy.
Of course the Fortnite season 10 release date isn’t all about what’s ending, and a new season promises sweeping map changes, a new storyline, and a fresh battle pass teeming with curious challenges and cosmetics. There are plenty of theories all ready about what the new season will be about, and indeed, where the season 9 storyline is heading.
Join us as we dig into all of this, from expected map changes to possible themes for the season 10 battle pass. Of course, we’ll also cover that important Fortnite season 10 release date. Here are all the latest details on Fortnite season 10.
Fortnite season 10 release date
Our best guess is that the Fortnite season 10 release date is July 18, 2019. Seeing as each new season usually arrives on Thursday, July 18 is the most likely season 10 start date as it’s exactly ten weeks after the launch of season 9. On occasion Christmas or Overtime challenges have extended season length by a couple of weeks, so August 1, 2019 is also a possibility.
Fortnite season 10 teasers
If we assume the release date is July 18, 2019, then we can expect to see the first Fortnite season 10 teaser arriving on July 15. This will likely appear on the official Fortnite Twitter account and give a clue about the new season’s them, while also confirming the release date.
Fortnite season 10 battle pass
This format hasn’t changed much since the battle pass was first introduced, so we’re fairly certain we know what’s coming with the Fortnite season 10 battle pass. First off, you’ll need a total of 950 Fortnite V-Bucks to purchase the season 10 battle pass, this will unlock the premium tier of rewards that you’ll need to progress through in order to earn every goodie. There will be new skins, emotes, stickers, harvesting tools, gliders, back blings, and much, much more inside. You can also expect a season 10 tier 100 battle pass skin with its own set of challenges that only the dedicated few will stand a chance of completing.
Fortnite season 10 map changes and theories
It’s very tricky to guess what exactly might be happening to Fortnite’s map in season 10, but there are a few likely changes.
The most notable one pertains to the gigantic moving eye inside the icy cliff where Greasy Grove used to be. Clearly, there’s some kind of huge monster lying in wait, and the most logical way for it to escape is for the ice to thaw or for Polar Peak to be destroyed. This change may happen during season 9, but the result would almost certainly be present when the new season rolls around. Some have gone as far as to suggest the monster in Polar Peak will destroy the whole map and we’ll finally get a new Fortnite map, but that seems highly unlikely.
With season 9 bringing us to the future we’d love to see the season 10 map rewind the clock and deliver us to the Jurassic era. Even if this only applies to a portion of the map it would be a superb addition. Plus, who doesn’t want tiny dinosaurs as pets? We’ve already seen plenty of dinosaur bones dug up over the months, and there are a smattering of banners featuring archaeological tools and dino skulls. Previously there have been clues for future seasons hidden in plain sight in each battle pass, so there’s a tiny bit of promise to this theory.
And there you have it: everything we currently know about Fortnite season 10, plus plenty we don’t. Every day there are new challenges cropping up and minor tweaks to the map, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more clues and update you as the current season continues.
