Epic Games has released the latest Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass Update, so lets take a look at what’s new.
After fighting for survival, traversing primal battlegrounds and hunting for wildlife in Season 6, aliens have invaded more than just the Island in Season 7 – they’ve upgraded the season’s Battle Pass too!
This all-new Battle Pass puts you in the driver seat, leveling up and claiming rewards in the order you decide. Let’s start with a video and then break it down further!
CHAPTER 2 SEASON 7 BATTLE PASS
BATTLE STARS ARE BACK
In this season, Battle Stars return to the Battle Pass with a fun new twist. Every time you Level Up, whether by playing and completing challenges to earn XP or buying a Battle Pass Level with V-Bucks, you’ll earn 5 more Battle Stars. Use your Battle Stars to claim a suite of awesome Battle Pass rewards in the order you decide!
YOUR BATTLE PASS REWARDS IN YOUR ORDER
With the new Battle Pass, cosmetics are no longer tied to reaching specific season levels. Instead you’ll earn Battle Stars when you level up, and can exchange them to claim Battle Pass rewards in the order you decide.
As you earn season levels and claim rewards, more pages of the Battle Pass will unlock, offering new reward options to choose from. Want to claim the Abduction Contrails on Page One straight away? No problem. Or would you rather hold on to your Battle Stars and level up more to open Page Two and snag a new space-age Lobby Track first – the choice is yours!
Each page of the Battle Pass also has a special locked reward, like the punk rock believer Sunny or synthetic artist Guggimon, only available once all other rewards on that page have been claimed. Scope out your favorites and snag them first as you work to reach Level 100 and claim the intergalactic traveler Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty. After claiming all 100 Battle Pass rewards, you can keep exchanging your Battle Stars for a selection of sleek new Outfit styles for Doctor Slone and others within additional pages of Bonus Rewards.
Don’t own the Battle Pass? No worries, all players earn the same number of Battle Stars when they level and each page of the Battle Pass has rewards available for all players to claim as you play.
Purchasing the Battle Pass will immediately unlock the face-swapping alien, Kymera. With over 800,000 combinations of head shapes, eye and skin colors, patterns and armor colors to choose from you’re sure to find a style that fits just right! If the one-eyed squid-mouth look isn’t trendy anymore, don’t sweat it – you can freely mix & match from any of your unlocked style options at any time.
So how do you craft the perfect look for this appearance-altering alien? By collecting Alien Artifacts! Explore parts of the Island impacted by the Invasion each week or squad up and unravel the mystery of crystal-encased Cosmic Chests to collect Alien Artifacts. Similar to Battle Stars, these can be exchanged to claim additional styles for Kymera that permanently expand your choices of custom alien looks.
The Invasion is here and with the new Chapter 2 Season 7 Battle Pass your rewards are in your hands.
WITH AN EXPLOSIVE OPENING ATTACK, A MYSTERIOUS ALIEN ARMY IS INVADING THE ISLAND. UNDER THE COMMAND OF DOCTOR SLONE, THE IMAGINED ORDER (IO) HAS TAKEN IT UPON THEMSELVES TO FIGHT BACK. AS YOU BATTLE AMIDST THE CHAOS, MEET CHARACTERS WHO EMBRACE THE INVASION, OPPOSE IT, OR JUST WANT TO KEEP FISHING. THE FATE OF THE ISLAND IS AT STAKE.
UFOS AREN’T JUST FOR ALIENS ANYMORE. SHOOT DOWN SAUCERS OR HIJACK THEM TO TAKE CONTROL. FLY AROUND WITH YOUR SQUAD AS YOU FIRE AT YOUR FOES, PICK UP ANYTHING THAT ISN’T BOLTED DOWN, OR TOSS AROUND FLEEING VEHICLES.
INNOVATIONS OF THE IO
THE IMAGINED ORDER HAS DEPLOYED SOPHISTICATED WEAPONRY TO COMBAT THE ALIEN INVADERS. SURVEY WHAT’S AROUND YOU WITH THE RECON SCANNER, SHOOT THROUGH STRUCTURES WITH THE RAIL GUN, AND FIGHT YOUR WAY FORWARD WITH THE FLEXIBLE PULSE RIFLE. THE ALIENS HAVE DEVISED UNIQUE TECH, TOO, LIKE THE KYMERA RAY GUN AND MORE TO COME AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES.
REMODEL ON DEMAND
THE ROVING SAUCERS HAVE MADE IT RAIN NUTS AND BOLTS — DISCOVERED TO BE A VIABLE CRAFTING INGREDIENT! WITH NUTS AND BOLTS, CRAFT TO CONSTRUCT ONCE VAULTED WEAPONS. TURN AN ASSAULT RIFLE INTO A BURST ASSAULT RIFLE, A SUBMACHINE GUN INTO A RAPID FIRE SMG, OR A SHOTGUN INTO A LEVER ACTION SHOTGUN.
CREATE YOUR OWN ALIEN
IN THIS SEASON’S BATTLE PASS, YOUR IMMEDIATE UNLOCK IS THE CUSTOMIZABLE KYMERA OUTFIT — AN ALIEN SPECIMEN FOR YOU TO SCULPT. THROUGHOUT THE SEASON, COLLECT ALIEN ARTIFACTS TO CLAIM ADDITIONAL STYLES FOR KYMERA. MIX & MATCH DIFFERENT HEAD SHAPES, EYE COLORS, SKIN PATTERNS, AND MORE TO CREATE YOUR OWN LOOK. EXPLORE KYMERA’S STYLE COMBINATIONS, THE RETURN OF BATTLE STARS, AND THE REST OF THE REWARDS IN-GAME ON THE BATTLE PASS PAGE.
Fight in a cosmic war in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7: Invasion. Alien forces have infiltrated the Island while Doctor Slone leads the IO forces against them. Jump into battle by taking up both side’s tech: abduct your foes in a flying Saucer, blast enemies with the Rail Gun, create your own Alien in the Battle Pass, and more. As the Season progresses and the war escalates, new weaponry will be deployed and the battlefield will be shaken up. The battle for the Island begins now.
Fortnite Season 7 will be available until September 12th.
