Fortnite Season 5 begins on July 12

It's nearly time for a new Fortnite Battle Pass. Well, it's nearly time in about two weeks, anyway. The current Season 4 is coming to an end and Epic Games took to Reddit to announce officially Season 5 to the community.

Season 4 is coming to an end! We want to give you a heads up on the exact ending time. You may have seen the timer update in-game, which means we are giving you two more days to complete Season 4! Season 5 will begin on July 12th at 4 AM EDT (08:00 GMT).

As an added bonus, folks still grinding out Season 4 will have additional opportunities before then to get the last rewards. A +100 percent match XP event is taking place this weekend, starting on June 29 and running to July 2.

No other details were released, but we'd expect to get some kind of teaser for Season 5 pretty soon.
