Discover the latest updates in the world of Fortnite, including new Seasons, events and more.

Chapter 5 - Season 1

What's new in Fortnite?

Chapter 5 of Fortnite Battle Royale brings a beautiful new Island, but not all is what it seems.

'The Society' is pulling the strings in secret, and they’ve taken Peely in their spite. Join 'The Underground' and take down 'The Society’s' bosses — including its most notorious boss Valeria. To help you out, take the Island’s train, modify your weapons, and use a Ballistic Shield while shooting a pistol.

Join the fight in Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground.

New for Battle Pass: Chapter 5 - Season 1 Big Bang

The Outfits are Underground underdogs and The Society’s crème de la crooked.

With the Big Bang Battle Pass purchase, you’ll auto-unlock troublemaker Hope, the hope of The Underground. Progress in the Battle Pass to unlock more Outfits. Those aren’t the only Outfits in the Battle Pass though. Later on in the Season, unlock Solid Snake of the Gaming Legends Series!

You can earn XP towards your Big Bang Battle Pass in Battle Royale and Zero Build. But did you know you can also earn XP in certain creator-made games? Creator-made games that reward XP have an XP badge in their Discover screen description. Play the way you want to complete this Season's Big Bang Battle Pass.

PS Plus Essential members can stand out from the crowd in Fortnite with exclusive content packs. The Chilling Mystery Pack includes:

  • Subzero Cryptic Outfit

What is the Fortnite Battle Pass?

Buy in-game, earn great rewards 

With Battle Pass, there are 100 tiers of great rewards to unlock in Fortnite Battle Royale every season. Simply buy in-game to start earning.

Cosmetics are no longer directly tied to reaching specific season levels and instead, Battle Stars are earned when you level up. You can then exchange Battle Stars to claim Battle Pass rewards in the order you decide for each tier. You can buy V-Bucks on PlayStation Store to purchase the latest Battle Pass in-game.

Fortnite Battle Pass FAQ

As you level up and claim rewards, more pages of the Battle Pass will unlock, offering new reward options to choose from. Want to claim a specific reward on Page 1 straight away? No problem. Would you rather hold on to your Battle Stars and level up some more to snag a reward on Page 2? The choice is yours!

Each page of the Battle Pass also has a special locked reward only available once all other rewards on that page have been claimed. Scope out your favourites and snag them first as you work to reach Level 100. After claiming all 100 Battle Pass rewards, you can keep exchanging your Battle Stars for a selection of sleek new Outfit Styles within the Bonus Reward pages.

Don’t own the Battle Pass? No worries, all players earn the same number of Battle Stars when they level and each page of the Battle Pass has rewards available for all players to claim as you play.

‘Save the World’ mode has its own great range of events and unlockable items. The Battle Pass, however, is exclusive to Fortnite’s free-to-play Battle Royale mode.

Battle Royale isn't the only place to earn XP towards your battle pass, though. You can also earn XP from missions in Fortnite Save the World.

Zero Build Mode 

Without building, all players have the recharging overshield as their first line of defense in Zero Build. Slide downhill to avoid enemy fire or use mantling to get the high ground on opponents. Don’t forget to sprint between cover on your way to a Victory Royale!
