Fortnite Season 2 Is All About Spy Wars, Hideouts, And Deadpool
Shaken, not stirred in Chapter 2, Season 2.
After a delay resulted in the longest season yet, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is now live, and brings with it a super-secret spy theme to shake things up in the Battle Royale--just don't expect any official patch notes, at least at this point. As you'd expect, it's not as significant of an overhaul as the initial Chapter 2 debut, but there are a lot of new elements to dig into once you download the larger-than-average patch. Here's a look at the highlights of what's new in the 12.0 update, which kicks off the new season that is expected to run for the next 10 weeks.
The trailer below shows off some of the new skins the season will introduce, including a very strange cat and muscular man hybrid called Meowscles, a variation of Maya that will look different to every other player in a match, the golden-armed Midas, and more. Another trailer for this season's battle pass also reveals that Deadpool is joining as a special Battle Pass skin, although there's no firm date on when that will happen.
With the spy theme, Epic Games is asking you to pick sides for this season, giving you specific challenges and rewards based on your choice. You'll also be able to visit all new points of interest on the map, such as a luxury yacht, volcano hideout, opulent mansion, and more to face off against NPCs from your opposing faction for some good loot rewards.
Epic Games also revealed some new weapons for the season, including new decoy grenades, proximity mines, and disguises that all play nicely with the theme.

Epic Games has said that Season 2 will be a larger patch than normal, and that the trend will continue throughout the season as more is added to the game. This season's Battle Pass will cost the regular 950 V-bucks (around $10). If you fully level it up, you'll be able to earn a total of 1,500 V-Bucks.
Season 2 is expected to end in late April.
