The studio has definitely promoted the title in a creative way, as many in-game assets have now been disappearing due to dimensional rifts showing up, with the portals having supposedly transported them to our world.
Data miners also discovered a few cosmetic items in the game's files, such as differently themed contrails, but the Season 5 remains a secret for now.
Fortnite Battle Royale's Season 4 kicked off in May as meteors changed the face of the map significantly and a new theme was introduced.
Battle Pass owners will also get the chance to earn XP more quickly by completing weekly challenges. My money is on this being a constantly changing event, with the Wild West featured during Fortnite Season 5 week 1, before the island is then sent through time to the dinosaurs, or something just as cool!
Speculation ranges from time travel to more missile strikes and from an alien invasion to some sort of post-apocalyptic world.
How long will Season 5 last? The time span gives players ample opportunity to earn all of Battle Pass items and the cycle seems to work perfectly.
Fortnite is not as old as other online multiplayer games with millions of players, such as World of Warcraft, Counter-Strike, or World of Tanks, but it definitely managed to quickly gain a large following. Now, it seems as if Epic Games is content to continue marketing the hybrid construction shooter by way of real-life props, as there have recently been multiple sightings of Loot Llamas across Europe.
