If you missed it, earlier this week the season six update arrived in Fortnite, adding new items and pets to the game.

In Season 6, Epic has added height information, so if a player's movement produces an echo, that could be because they are in a basement below you, or shuffling around in an attic.

Heading into Season 6, Loot Lake was one of the least popular locations, mostly due to the openness of it and the difficulty navigating across the deep water. We're sure that Epic Games is on the case with figuring out the cause of this issue, and Xbox One players will be able to enjoy the game alongside PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile players sooner rather than later.

When you purchase the Battle Pass, you'll immediately gain two of season 6's skins: Calamity and DJ Yonder, which were two skins that featured in Epic's teasers for season 6.

While there are plenty of things you can do for free, you will need a Battle Pass to fully enjoy the new content.

The fan hype and tantalising teasers continue as Fortnite Season 6 is on the horizon.
