Fortnite Season 2 release news
The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 release date has been locked in for February 20, 2020, and Epic Games has provided its first clues. And it’s a good job the developers have decided to provide more teasers for the upcoming update, as fans had started fearing the worst. This has been one of the longest seasons in recent memory and its led to a clear stagnation, even with the new map to explore.
There’s no doubt that Epic Games will struggle to top the hype created last year with the Black Hole and it doesn’t appear that something of the magnitude is being planned.
While the Black Hole won’t be returning and fans can be safe in the knowledge that Fortnite isn’t shutting down, there’s still plenty of mystery surrounding Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.
Epic Games has started to share more on what is happening and a lot of it appears to be revolving around gold.
Gamers have started to notice objects turning to gold in-game, making for a low-key Easter egg hunt on the map.
The map itself looks set to be revamped following its debut last year as part of the Chapter 1 launch.
New teasers have been shared online that suggest a new base will built on the Eye Land location.
This appears to be connected to the Evil organisation ALTER, who looks set to leave a stamp on the island and several locations.
But there are other clues that have yet to become, along with new characters which could have an impact on the ongoing narrative.
For now, we only have the barest details and it appears that another big project from Epic Games isn’t going to spring into life during Fortnite Season 2.
Fortnite Save the World is going free-to-play in the future but Epic Games has yet to give it a release date.
Fans are also expecting some kind of merging of the two games, based on certain changes made to how currency works in Save the World.
But while some fans are eager to try out the original Fortnite mode, it doesn’t look like this will be happening at the start of Chapter 2.
Whatever is being planned, Fortnite fans should have all their questions answered on February 20, the official Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 release date.
“With the addition of the 11.50 update, Chapter 2 – Season 2 is now expected to launch Thursday, February 20.
“Chapter 2 – Season 2 will feature REDACTED with multiple REDACTED. We can’t brief you on all of next Season’s secrets just yet,” a message from Epic confirms.
“Before the Season ends, we’ll have additional Overtime Challenges and a new two-week event. Stay tuned to Fortnite social channels for more details!”
The Fortnite Season 2 start time has not been confirmed yet but based on past releases, we would predict early morning donwtime for servers.
This will be followed by a big update needing to be installed and the full Fortnite Season 2 launch going live in the early afternoon in the UK.
