Fortnite: Battle Royale: What are Back Blings?

Of course, you can always purchase tiers of items outright for 150 V-Bucks a pop. Most notably, some of the best multi-platform games have yet to be ported to the Switch, but this week, game journalist and frequent leaker Marcus Sellars claimed on Twitter that both Fortnite and Diablo 3 are Switch-bound. That essentially means the studio has just jammed more loot into the Pass, with 30 more unlockable items available to get your hands on for season 3.

Battle Passes typically offer several tears, which you can accelerate the progression of by outright buying them.

Despite the additional tiers, it is still expected to take the same amount of time to unlock all of the items - around 75-150 hours. Epic Games says this is against the layout of the survival video game and should be prevented. The main issues that have come with this new update include the lag and audio delay in which some gamers are saying that the game is actually unplayable.

Beyond offering Battle Royale players lots of skins for very little in-game money, the Season 3 Battle Pass also introduces new types of rewards and ways to unlock them. And Epic Games has done a fantastic job of monetizing a free to play game with the Battle Pass system.

It's not been announced whether there will be any Fortnite server downtime on Thursday, but Epic Games tends to take Fortnite offline ahead of big updates.

A glimpse at Season 3's newly unveiled Battle Pass. Levelling up, effectively, will get you new outfits, weekly challenges, and more. Such is the difficulty updating a game with millions of concurrent players all over the world on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

With all of these improvements, Fortnite continues to prove why it's a popular game, as such quality of life improvements expand the title's playability. Which cosmetics are you most excited about?

For those who can't be bothered to add, that's a total of 76 items compared to the 46 cosmetics found in Season 2.

That's right. The daily challenges from season two are now being replaced with weekly challenges.

However, some players are able to do away with the reload time by simply switching weapons back and forth.
