According to the Fortnite Trello board, Epic Games is working on eliminating server and client hitches on Xbox One and PC. With new locations and features like pets, this season will have plenty to offer for players of the absurdly popular game.

Keep an eye on our Fortnite Season 6 hub page as we update the page with the latest changes.

There are three pets in all being introduced in season 6, and they're all exclusive to the Battle Pass.

"Darkness Rises" is the theme for Season 6 and follows the events of the purple cube and its subsequent dissolving into Loot Lake.

With a new Battle Pass also comes a plethora of challenges for players to complete and a secret Battle Star to locate. This season they're tied to the Hunting Party challenges and we've already figured out where to find the first set of hidden battle stars. These new items can be found scattered around corrupted areas of the map and grant the player a shadow form when consumed.


Epic Games has chose to not remove or add any named locations this time and has instead focused on introducing new points of interest in various areas.

You won't be able to use weapons after consuming a Shadow Stone, which lasts for around 45 seconds.

In addition to Shadow Stones, the Vaulted Impulse Grenade, Suppressed Submachine Gun, Light Machine Gun, Bouncer, and Remote Explosives have all been added back into the vault. Season six brings pets that you can carry on your back, including dogs, dragons, and chameleons. Each pet is available in a variety of different color schemes, and if you want them all, you'll need to work your way all the way up to Battle Pass tier 98, which isn't exactly an easy feat.

New Season, new Battle Pass. 100 levels, over 100 new rewards.
