The new season of Fortnite will arrive towards the end of Summer!

Fortnite's latest season, Season 3, got underway in June with an awesome water theme that saw the map flooded and will slowly recede as the season continues.

The Summer Splash Event has also offered players a range of LTMs and challenges to get stuck into.

However, eyes are starting to shift towards Season 4 and what it may offer.

Here's what we know about the new season of Fortnite.

When Does Fortnite Season 4 Chapter 2 Start?

The new season of Fortnite will begin on the 27th August, as this is when Season 3 will end.

The update time will begin at 7am BST.

Fortnite World Cup 2020

Speculation is growing surrounding the Fortnite World Cup 2020 that it may be cancelled, especially as qualifiers started back in April last year.

You can expect tournaments around this event to begin during this season.

The Fortnite Competitive Twitter account recently tweeted this:

Meaning that the likelihood of seeing anything around the World Cup in the current season is unlikely.

Ninja also pointed out the extreme lag that players experience in custom games.

Map Changes

Every new season brings map changes including new Points of Interest. In Season 2, four new POIs were added, but in Season 3 only one was added at the start of the season.

However, the map was flooded at the start of the new season and as time goes on, the water will recede and reveal more of the map.

It's likely that the map will retain a similar look to the end of Season 3.

Battle Pass

The Battle Pass will once again play an important part in the season and although we're unsure what it will include, we can expect plenty of skins, emotes, pickaxes and gliders.

It will likely be the same price, costing 950 V-Bucks for the battle pass - this is about £7-8.

You can also obtain the Battle Pass Bundle, which will cost 2800 V-Bucks and rewards you with access to the first 25 tiers of the Battle Pass immediately.

Last season it took 7,560,000 XP to reach max rank.
