Fortnite Battle Royale: Full Details on Season 3 Battle Pass

Season 3 kicks off today on PS4, adding new framerate options, better building and more.

We’re kicking off Season 3 of Fortnite Battle Royale this week, and along with it our new Battle Pass! In addition to the Battle Pass, we have some awesome features coming in, a movement tool in Save the World, and improvements to how you build in Battle Royale!

Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite in 60 FPS!

The v.3.0.0 update brings a new 60 FPS mode for PS4 and PS4 Pro. You’ll be able to pick up those Victory Royales with more clarity than ever before with buttery smooth framerates. If the highest-quality graphics are still your preference, you can toggle the 60 FPS mode at any time for improved visuals instead. We plan to continue work on the mode and improve it over time so definitely give us your feedback!

Better Building

Building is vital to your survival in Battle Royale, so we want to make it feel as good as possible. Find a tiresome tree in your way? No problem, now you can build right through it and continue on your way to a Victory Royale. Additionally, with the Turbo Build mode and Material Swapping you can keep building those stairs as you sprint ‘n shoot and if you run out of wood the brick or metal (whatever is available) will swap right in!

Save the World Updates

Fans of our Save the World mode also get a slew of new content. Cruise around the storm in style with the brand-new Hoverboard, a new way to traverse the map. No need to use stamina as you surf to your quest objectives and complete them quicker than before. The v.3.0.0 update also brings in a new Lunar New Year questline with all new Heroes and weapons.

P.S. If you’re feeling Heroic, I’d give a listen to the newly overhauled orchestral Save the World music. There may even be a little in Battle Royale as well ;)

New to the Battle Pass? It’s a way to get exclusive loot by playing Fortnite, and then earn or buy tiers to unlock even more rewards!

When you buy the Season 3 Battle Pass, you’ll instantly unlock a batch of great in-game rewards including the new Mission Specialist Outfit! As you play during the season, you unlock a series of reward tiers. 100 tiers, 100 rewards. The more you play, the more you’ll unlock.

Fortnite Season 3

So what’s different from the Season 2 Battle Pass? There are now 30 more tiers in Season 3 (100 total), and with more tiers comes more loot. Even though we added 30 tiers, you’ll still be able to complete the Season 3 Battle Pass in the same amount of time as the Season 2 Battle Pass (typically 75-150 hours). Don’t have the time? You can always purchase tiers for 150 V-Bucks each.

Finally, don’t miss out on the new PlayStation Plus Celebration Pack that’s free for PlayStation Plus members. This exclusive bundle gives you a new glider and a new outfit for use in Battle Royale. Be the envy of other players… right before you take them out.

See you in Fortnite!

No doubt the best Free To Play game to hit the PS Store. I have been playing Battle Royale every day with my friends since it launched last year.

If I have to choose, 60 fps is so much more important to me than a 4K mode. I know sometimes these limitations are on the CPU side of things, so I’m infinitely grateful you guys made it work. 60 fps should be a standard, or at least an option in every game. I will always take decreased visuals if it means I can get a better framerate.

Love the Save the World PvE mode! I have well over 100 hours into it. I am glad you are still supporting it as I am not a fan of Battle Royale mode. Is there an ETA on when Canny Valley and Twine Pines Save the World content will be finished? Love the game and new currency which eliminates some of the problems the game had in the beginning and thanks for the continued support!

I keep waiting for the Founders Pack to go on sale again.

I regret not purchasing it when it was.
I was wanting to get the Limited Edition one so I get two friend passes.

Played today and the Hover Board is amazing! Thank you! You should do a deal with Universal and get Marty McFly as a Legendary Hero in Fortnite Save the World! “You can’t go on water unless you got POWER hahaha!” It reminds me of the Bulldog from BttF2!

When I first went on fortnite BR on ps4 I tried connecting my account to my account I play on pc. Your system was glitching saying my password was wrong when it wasn’t. Literally could log on pc but not on ps4. So because friends were waiting I skipped it. Found out later the way to fix it now that I can get it working using a pc. I go to unlink the PS4 account by creating the account it was using and I went to disconnect and now I have to wait for my email to get answered to get it unlinked. It’s dumb that I have to wait until you guys respond since I’ve never bought anything on the PS4 account. Should not be so much work because now I can’t even play on ps4 because it makes no sense to anymore while a wait smh
