"Fortnite" is set for the next chapter.
Fortnite has gamers guessing as to what their next season will entail. The popular battle royale styled game is getting its first major competition soon, with the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. COD will incorporate the battle royale style gameplay into their title, which has a much bigger audience than other competitors such as PUBG. That means Fortnite developer Epic Games needs to keep their gamers preoccupied with something new and inventive. Season 6 plans to do that.
The sixth season will launch on September 27. The events that will set up the new season seem to revolve around the cube that melted into Loot Lake. Dubbed "Kevin" by the collective internet, the purple cube rolled around the map for a while before it ended at Loot Lake. The once liquid body of water was transformed into a giant trampoline. Epic Games announced the new season via Twitter on Friday (September 21). "Season 6 is now dropping from the Battle Bus on September 27," they wrote. "Celebrate its arrival and unlock those final Battle Pass rewards with an additional 400% Match XP all weekend, from now until September 24 at 8 AM ET (1200 GMT). Glide into the party!"
