Season 3 of Fortnite Battle Royale has launched an all-new space-themed Battle Pass! We also released our massive v.3.0.0 update which includes a whole slew of new features and improvement that every Victory Royale seeker will appreciate.
With v.3.0.0, all Xbox One and Xbox One X players will now be able to experience Fortnite at 60 fps! Players will now default to buttery smooth framerates and visuals tuned specifically for Xbox One and Xbox One X. If you want to play with an even higher level of graphics, you can toggle the 60 fps feature as a trade-off. Providing a smooth experience while maintaining a high level of graphics will continue to be our goal with this feature as we iterate!
We’ve also been in the lab hammering away at some building improvements which will change the way you craft your way to that Victory Royale. With Turbo Building, you’ll now be able to continue building stairs as you run towards combat and hold down your primary fire button. Our new Material Swapping option allows you to continue building when you run out of one material type by auto-switching you to the next available material. For a deeper dive on all of our building improvements, you can read our dev blog.
V.3.0.0 also marks the launch of our Season 3 Battle Pass. If this is your first time jumping into Fortnite, now is the perfect time as the new Season 3 Battle Pass brings a ton of Weekly Challenges and cosmetic loot to unlock.
What is the Battle Pass?
The Season 3 Battle Pass features over 100 items and cosmetics you can use in-game to stylishly rack up those Victory Royales. Space Outfits, Skydiving Effects, Gliders and more are available to unlock as you progress through the season.
What’s different from Battle Pass Season 2?
So, what’s different about the Season 3 Battle Pass? There are now 30 more tiers in Season 3 (100 total), and with more tiers comes more loot. This season also features new Weekly Challenges. These replace Season 2’s Daily Challenges and allow you to play on your schedule since Weekly Challenges unlock and stack as the season progresses.
Even though we added 30 tiers, you’ll still be able to complete the Season 3 Battle Pass in the same amount of time as the Season 2 Battle Pass (typically 75-150 hours). Don’t have the time? You can always purchase tiers for 150 V-Bucks each.
What is Fortnite Battle Royale?
100 players. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments are combined with intense PvP combat. The last commander standing wins.
