Fortnite Season 3 About To End; Last Chance For Challenges And Skins

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 3 is coming to an end. Epic Games announced Season 4 will start Tuesday, May 1, and that means today, April 30, is Battle Pass owners’ last chance to complete Season 3 challenges and reap the rewards.

Season 3 was made up of 10 weeks of challenges, ranging from blowing up opponents to finding llamas and hidden gnomes. While new challenges were revealed every seven days, you can still go back and complete previous weeks’ challenges, meaning there are tons of opportunities and rewards available right now that will disappear tomorrow. In order to play, you need a Battle Pass, which can be bought in-game for 950 V-Bucks.

Of course, with Season 3 ending it means Season 4’s surprises are right around the corner. Season 4 is set to begin on May 1, and presumably, we’ll learn all about the game’s Battle Pass and its latest skins available then. Epic Games has been teasing on Twitter that Season 4 may be superhero-themed and related to the small meteors that have been hitting the island. The latest Twitter tease features the words “brace for impact,” suggesting the big meteor strike could hit and bring these superhero characters with it.
