Fortnite Season 9 is the next phase of Chapter 2 and could be the penultimate season.

While Chapter 2 has taken a strange turn and has a lot of unanswered questions, it's hoped that this new season will address some of the more confusing issues in the story.

From a gameplay perspective, it will likely focus on a certain aspect of the game which compliments the theme of the new season.

Here's what we know about Season 9 in Fortnite.

Release Date

Season 9 of Fortnite will begin Monday 6th December 2021.

These updates tend to start rolling out in the early-hours of the morning, usually around 5-7AM GMT.

Battle Pass

Price

The Battle Pass will once again feature in Season 9, costing users 950 V-Bucks. This will give players access to 100 tiers of rewards, including the opportunity for bonus skins and variants as the season progresses. Alternatively, users can buy the Battle Pass bundle for 2800 V-Bucks, granting 25 tier skips. You can also buy each additional tier for 150 V-Bucks.

Rewards

No rewards have been detailed yet, but there's still the possibility that Naruto could feature in Fortnite's next Battle Pass, as it was highly rumoured to be featured in Season 8.

The Battle Pass always features at least one crossover skin, with Season 8 focusing on Venom 2's Carnage. Perhaps another movie will feature, with the new Matrix or Spider-Man movie potentially being the focal point.

Map

While the changes are unclear at this time, expect the map to have a few changes to remove the POIs, put into place, as a result of the Cubed theme in Season 8.

Weapons

New weapons are always implemented, with the new Mythic Weapons being related to the theme of the Season. You can also expect a few weapons to be unvaulted, while others are vaulted to make way and avoid overcrowding.

Skins

As far as we're aware, skins are still a mystery. However, Epic have revealed well in advance that they are collaborating with the new Disney+ show 'The Book of Boba Fett'. This means that a Boba Fett skin will be released and potentially more relating to the show.

While this won't be available on release of Season 9, they have informed us that it will arrive on the 24th December 2021 at 7pm ET.

Events

By now, most of you have more than likely seen the leaks pertaining to the fact that next season is going to be the first in Chapter 3.

With this said, we've seen plently of leaks surrounding the event, from leakers such as FNLeaksAndAudio and iFireMonkey.

Once the event begins, players will see the Chapter 2 Finale Event Loading Screen in the playlist called 'The End'.

In the new playlist, players can grab two weapons: the Legendary Scar and Legendary Revolver according to @iFireMonkey.

A new POI is also expected to arrive named 'Guava'.

Can't wait to find out more? @FNBRintel has posted some event gamepaly tags that may reveal what's to come (only click the link if you're ok with spoilers).

In the leadup to the new Chapter, Epic may have accidently leaked their own trailer for the new Chapter. This new short video was found via Tik Tok as a random advertisment that users have seen, and it details what may happen during the event, along with our first look at the new map.
