We’re greater than midway by Fortnite Season 5, and we’re nearly midway by Chapter 2 itself. Fortnite has picked up pace on its storyline within the current seasons and there’s a lot happening. The Zero Level has destabilized, an unknown NPC has entered the world by an alternate dimension, ridiculously highly effective “hunters” are going round making an attempt to eradicate gamers, and the IO guards are on the free. Right here’s every part it’s essential to know in regards to the launch date, storyline, theme, and content material of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.
What would be the theme of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6?
The theme of Fortnite Season 6 is just about confirmed, given the sample Epic Video games has been following until now. The current seasons of Chapter 2 has the identical theme because the corresponding season of Chapter 1. The one exception is Season 1 (which didn’t exist in Chapter 1) and Season 2.
The fifth season of every chapter was about interdimensional journey – Chapter 2 with the Zero Level destabilizing and Agent Jonesy coming in along with his military of hunters, and Chapter 1 with the introduction of Rifts, that introduced in Drift, Ragnarok, and different characters from alternate dimensions. The fourth season of every chapter was superhero-themed – Chapter 2 with its Marvel crossover and Chapter 1 with the Omega-Carbide storyline. The third season of every chapter was about astronauts – with Chapter 2 having the story of Siona’s spaceship, and Chapter 1 having the enduring astronaut skins corresponding to Darkish Voyager.
Following this sample, Season 6 has a really excessive likelihood of following the “darkness” or Dice Power theme from Chapter 1. The purple Dice from Chapter 1 – named “Kevin” – is prone to return in some form or type. The power plant at Steamy Stacks already has a miniature dice mannequin, and is thought to harness Dice power to generate energy.
What would be the storyline of Season 6?
We don’t know but how Dice Power will issue into the story of Season 6, however some plot growth from Season 5 is fairly apparent. In the beginning of Season 5, we lastly acquired a glimpse into Agent Jonesy’s world. Apparently, he works in a corporation that is aware of in regards to the Zero Level and might management its energy. The IO Guards that work with them are additionally towards us, and it’s theorized that IO stands for “Interdimensional Order”. Jonesy is ordered by somebody increased up within the group – a mysterious lady we all know nothing about – to enter out world, stabilize the Zero Level, and use the hunters to verify not one of the gamers (us) escape.
Throughout this name, the lady additionally asks him to keep away from drawing the eye of the Seven, however by this level, Jonesy has left the workplace in a rush. It’s nearly sure that Agent Jonesy will do one thing that may alert the Seven, and we are going to lastly get some extra info on this mysterious group. The Seven had been final seen on the finish of Chapter 1, and we solely find out about three of its members: The Customer, The Scientist, and Paradigm.

It is vitally doubtless that the pre-season dwell occasion could have Agent Jonesy making an attempt to return to his world by the Zero Level, however failing due to The Seven.
What skins and content material can we anticipate in Season 6?
The unique Chapter 1 Season 6 launched throughout Halloween and had fairly a number of skins themed accordingly, however this time we will probably anticipate some Dice-themed skins together with the fourth member of The Seven. One factor to recollect is that the Seven skins have at all times been time-limited. The Customer was locked to Season 4, The Scientist to Season X, and the Paradigm appeared for a quick interval within the Merchandise Store. Whereas Epic did say that Paradigm was a restricted time pores and skin, she is prone to return in Season 6 if we actually get a brand new member of the Seven. An Agent Jonesy pores and skin can be very doubtless, given how he’s on the heart of the storyline proper now. We would additionally get some Zero Level-based skins, and a pores and skin for the top of the IO company.
So far as content material goes, the Chapter is simply going to get higher from right here. Following the trail of Chapter 1 the place we began getting extra LTMs, Epic has lastly started including among the basic Chapter 1 modes corresponding to Ground is Lava. In keeping with leaks, Staff Rumble can be going to get extra variations – and certainly one of them (One Shot) is already dwell. Amongst weapons, we will positively anticipate the Pump Shotgun to make a return. The IO Company might be anticipated as a POI on the map, and we’d even get different previous places like Fortunate Touchdown and Shifty Shafts returning to the Chapter 2 map.
When does Fortnite Season 6 launch and when is the pre-season Dwell Occasion?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is anticipated to launch on March 16. Nevertheless, Epic is thought to delay seasons by a number of days and even weeks, and based on current leaks, we could be getting new challenges in that week.
