Fortnite Battle Royale Season Two Begins, Battle Pass Available For PS4, Xbox One, And PC

The Battle Pass gives you immediate access to many of Battle Royale's new cosmetic items.



Fortnite Battle Royale's Season Two kicks off today, December 14, and along with it comes a slew of new cosmetic items you can get in the PUBG-like survival game. While Battle Royale is free to download and play, Epic is offering a Battle Pass that grants you immediate access to some of the new items in Season Two and lets you earn more by playing.

The Battle Pass can be purchased with 950 V-Bucks and unlocks a handful of items for your character right away, including a squire outfit, Pulse Axe Pickaxe, and Royale X Glider. You'll level up your Battle Pass the more you play during the season, which in turn can unlock more than 65 additional rewards. You can also spend V-Bucks to purchase levels and speed up the process.

You can read more about Fortnite Battle Royale's Battle Pass on the game's website. Those who don't purchase it will still be able to unlock many of the new cosmetic items for free just by playing the game, including the Sir Glider the Brave glider and the "Wave" and "Ride the Pony" emotes.

Fortnite Battle Royale's Season Two runs from December 14 to February 20. Today also marks the start of the game's Christmas-themed Survive the Holidays event, which is available in both Battle Royale and Save the World. However, players only have a few more days to take part in Battle Royale's limited-time 50 vs. 50 mode. That runs through Sunday, December 17.
