Fortnite is set to shake up its traditional battle pass plans with an all-encompassing annual offering.
Files found within Fortnite’s latest update (v11.30) relate to the “2020 Annual Pass”, which grants access to all 2020 battle passes plus a smattering of other exclusives (thanks, Fortnite News).
You’ll also get the more expensive battle pass “Battle Bundle” versions, which instantly unlock 25 per cent of their contents when you cough up a little extra.
“Purchase the 2020 Annual Pass and receive all upcoming 2020 Fortnite Battle Royale: Battle Bundles and 7 Annual Pass exclusive cosmetics,” the Annual Pass description reads. “Battle Bundles unlock 25 per cent of content in each Battle Pass instantly upon release.”
Likely to go on sale in time for Christmas, it sounds a clever way to give a year’s worth of Fortnite – and for Epic to keep players locked in until Christmas 2020.
There’s a Fortnite announcement due tonight at The Game Awards, which begins 1.30am early tomorrow morning. This may well be it!
