Season 10 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is almost over
October 3, 2019
Season 10 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is almost over, but developer Epic Games is giving players a little more time to earn XP and unlock rewards. As part of its 10.40.1 patch notes, the studio has announced it is extending Season 10 by an additional week, and it’ll soon roll out a set of overtime challenges that includes some new end-of-season prizes to unlock.
Beginning Tuesday, October 8, players will be able to take on a set of “Out of Time” overtime missions. These will be available until October 13, the last day of Season 10. Complete the challenges and you’ll earn XP and unlock rewards, including new cosmetics and a commemorative Season 10 loading screen.
While Fortnite’s Batman crossover challenges may be over, you’ll have a little more time to purchase Batman skins and other cosmetics from the in-game store. The items were originally slated to leave the store on October 6, the original end date of Season 10, but the cosmetics will now be available until October 13. Among the items you can purchase is a Caped Crusader Pack, which includes two different Batman outfits, a Batwing-style glider, and a Batman-themed harvesting tool v buck generator. The Gotham City Rift Zone will also remain in the game until that day.
As for what’s new in Fortnite this week, Epic has unvaulted the Flint-Knock Pistol and made some changes to the Zone Wars limited-time modes. Now the modes are grouped into two playlists, and you have the option to either queue up by yourself or with a party.
Fortnite Creative, meanwhile, gets a new meteor prop gallery, while Save the World receives the new Surround Pound hammer and an escort quest. You can see all of this week’s changes to Fortnite: Battle Royale below; the full 10.40.1 patch notes can be found on Epic’s website.
