Fortnite Season 4 – Start and End Date, Battle Pass Price, Equipment
THE Season 4 Fortnite has just been released and is available to players from all over the world, but you will need to have access to the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass if you want to have access to the elite items and challenges that are part of the event. In this guide to Fortnite Season 4, we will detail the cost of the Battle Pass and everything else we think is important for the next big season of the popular game. We’ll also detail all the Fortnite Season 4 skins as well as the challenges, starting with Week 1.
Fortnite Season 4 – Start date
As we mentioned earlier, Fortnite Season 4 started on May 1, 2018, worldwide. Bearing in mind that Season 3 ended on April 30th, the Fourth Season started on the following day, arriving as a 2.3GB update for all platforms.
When you start the game, you will be presented with a new cinematic that you can see below that shows the impact of the comet, with shadows emerging from the wreckage. Was this the way to reveal the existence of aliens in Season 4? We will have to wait and see.
With this new season, a series of changes and additions to the trendy game arrived:
- A new Battle Pass with new rewards, themed with superheroes
- The arrival of a comet that introduced changes to the map, including new locations and adjustments to current ones
- Weekly Challenges starting with Week 1, with those for Week 3 becoming obsolete
The arrival of this new Season has also introduced many changes to the general mechanics of Battle Royale. The official patch notes reveal that:
- Structures on the central island (excluding Battle Bus) can be destroyed
- Unless it’s from below, headshot damage is prioritized when other parts of the body – like hands – are in the way.
- As a spectator, damage values will appear
- You can mark items as favorites in Locker, and a new “random” option can select one of these favorites when you join a game, giving you a surprisingly cosmetic loadout
- The emote wheel is no longer limited to six items
- When you run automatically, an icon will appear
- You can play the game in 4: 3
- The beast is currently unavailable in the game
- In Fortnite mobile, maintaining the direction for three seconds allows you to run automatically and buttons were created to “repair building” and “switch weapon”
Regarding the Fortnite Battle Royale map, you can see where the comet landed on the map if you head to Dusty Depot. The entire location was practically destroyed by the comet and you can see a smaller crater on the floor of Tilted Towers, which many players thought would be completely destroyed by the comet.
Fortnite Season 4 – New Skins
Below, you can see two skins for the characters that you can automatically unlock in Fortnite by purchasing the Battle Pass for Season 4 (more on that below).
There is a new Dynamite emote that will be unlocked when you buy the Season 4 Battle Pass as well as a new spray, which you can see below:
Fortnite Season 4 – End Date
Epic has yet to reveal any details on when Fortnite Season 4 will end, but considering that this season is likely to last 10 weeks, we assume it could happen a few weeks after the beginning of July 2018.

Partnership with the Avengers
Epic Games announced on its Twitter that Fortnite will have a collaboration with Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.
The collaboration between the two properties is highly timely. On the one hand, the theme of Fortnite Battle Royale Season 4 is superheroes, on the other hand, Avengers Infinity War is already breaking records at the box office, surpassing other Marvel superhero films in the same period of time.
In this collaboration, Thanos will be available as a playable character – if you find your Infinity Gauntlet.
The glove will reach the map via a meteorite (yes, one more) at the start of a match. Grab it and you will become Thanos, gaining superpowers.
You’ll be able to throw punches that allow you to stun enemies and destroy structures, make a jump against the devastating ground, create a beam of energy that causes damage over time and jump higher. In addition, Thanos has a regenerating shield and does not take damage from falling.
The counterpart? You will not be able to build, use weapons and use items as stepping stones. According to Epic’s notes, Thanos “doesn’t need these useless human devices”.
If Thanos is killed, the Infinity Gauntlet will fall to the ground and could be picked up by someone else.
Fortnite Season 4 – Battle Pass Cost
It’s a new Fortnite season, which can only mean one thing: a new Battle Pass that you need to buy.

You can use 950 V-Bucks to purchase the basic Battle Pass for Season 4, the equivalent of 9.99 euros on both the Xbox Live Store and the PSN Store. Alternatively, you can pay a staggering 2,800 V-Bucks to unlock the basic Season 4 Battle Pass, as well as some tiers, guaranteeing you some very interesting loot for your characters in the process.
