Fortnite’s latest season kicked off this morning and includes a big change not mentioned in the patch notes. The free-to-play battle royale sensation has changed how its in-game challenges work – how you acquire XP to level up and earn rewards.
And, unfortunately, there seems far less for free players who don’t own the £7.99 Battle Pass.
Weekly Challenges are now themed, named things like “Road Trip” and “Rumble Royale” for achieving the usual sorts of tasks but related to hero character Drift or playing Team Royale mode. But these challenges are all locked behind the Battle Pass. There’s no smattering of free challenges on offer as before.
