Fortnite Season 6 will begin on September 27

Epic Games has confirmed that the next installment of Fortnite shenanigans, Season 6, is to begin on September 27. As a result, there will be additional opportunity for players to max out their current Battle Pass before it ends.

A 400 percent match XP increase is pretty crazy, but for those getting close to the top tier, this weekend should be a great opportunity to unlock those final sweet in-game items.

Aside from the start date, no further details have been released at this time. But since it's less than a week away we can expect some teases to start appearing. The biggest one so far has been the mysterious purple cube, which has in the last couple of days migrated to and melted into Loot Lake, turning the water into a trampoline.

What other fun and games are in store only time will tell, but knowing Epic Games, it's unlikely it'll be too long before we see something.
