Fortnite: Real Life Loot Llamas Appear in Europe

  • The latest news on the Fortnite Android release

The image shows a rift like the ones that have been appearing in the skies above Fortnite's map, with a mysterious mask behind it.

According to a Reddit post from Epic Games' MrPopoTFS, Season 5 is then due to kick off on Thursday, July 12th at 09:00 BST (04:00 EDT) so you won't have to wait long before getting your hands on the Season 5 Battle Pass.

This follows previous delays for Fortnite fans during past season crossovers.

Taking everything into account, it will be interesting to see how Epic Games plans on having Season 5 top Season 4, as the most recent season contained a bevy of content for players to sink their teeth into. Epic usually releases seven challenges each week that range in difficulty.

It seems inevitable that Fortnite's map will undergo a major overhaul as we switch from Season 4 to Season 5 as numerous hints and cryptic clues are being discovered on a daily basis. Nothing is confirmed yet but the rocket launch was undoubtedly the start of something big.


A torrent of teasers has been released in-game this week, suggesting that the Season 5 theme will be based around historical time periods.

It expected that the season 5 battle pass will remain priced at around 950 V-Bucks, with the season 4 pass still available to anyone who wants to unlock its cosmetics.

While we don't quite know just yet what these real-life items are leading up to, it seems all but certain tied to the events that Epic Games is teasing for the massively-popular battle royale titles next season, and it seems for sure like it will be the game's biggest one yet.

At face value the explanation for all this is fairly simple: in the game there's now a rift in time and space which is sucking in objects from the game world and spitting them out into the real world.

Because if there's one thing Epic Games is great at, it's keeping fans interested with its interesting marketing displays.
