Fortnite: Epic distributes gifts, get the Battle Pass for Season 8 for free

Epic is giving away the next monthly Battle Pass in Fortnite.

But not just like that, you have to complete a series of in-game challenges.

Season 8 starts in two weeks, although the ten-week term of the seventh season is now over.

To bridge the gap, there are a few free “Renewal Challenges” available with Patch 7.40.

If you complete 13 of these challenges by February 27th, you will receive the Battle Pass 8 for free.

On the one hand, you want to keep the players on the line and – as I said – bridge the waiting time for season 8. On the other hand, the success of Apex Legends should not go unnoticed by Epic. A free battle pass is a good lure to attract players to Fortnite.

What else the new patch has to offer – spoilers: an infantry rifle – you can read in the patch notes.
