Battle Pass - Unlock More Content

If you want to kick up your Fortnite experience several notches, the first thing you may want to consider purchasing is the Battle Pass for the current season.

Get More Rewards with a Battle Pass

The Fortnite Battle Pass is a seasonal ticket that lasts until the end of the current Season. You can receive seasonal exclusive skins & emotes by playing the game and raising your Battle Pass tier!

Be sure to purchase the battle pass for the season that you want because these items cannot be bought from the Item Shop in the future!

Season Theme - Worlds Collide

Every Fortnite season has a theme that dictates the content's overall look! For season 5, the theme is "Worlds Collide"!
