Fortnite Season 6: Darkness Rises is here!

01 October, 2018

Fortnite season 6 finally landed on Thursday and gamers are exploring all the new parts of the map that have come with it. A list of available pets hasn't been mentioned, but the teaser video for the season, showcases there to be a dog, a chameleon and a dragon. All three feature their own animations and personality, and each comes with its own slight variation on the same backpack. The new season surely brings darker things together with a good amount of map changes, in which the Cube's response has been a bit brutal.

With Season 6, Epic is introducing a new Halloween theme for the game, just in time for Halloween, of course.

Not only is this a nice addition to those looking to collect everything going, but also, they often lead to extra Battle Stars to help you progress through your Battle Pass. But there are some nice perks, including the ability to move faster, phase through objects and taking a fall with no damage regardless of height. Here is where you can find all of the Fortnite Shadow Stones locations. Epic Games has written a blog post about the new season, and while it contains a lot of information about what's new, you can be sure there will be plenty of surprises too.
