Fortnite Season 5 Release Date

With their current Season nearing to an end, Epic Games have just confirmed release date of Fortnite Season 5 in a Tweet.

Shortly ahead of its anticipating launch, developer/publisher Epic Games have come forward to announce an official release date for Fortnite Season 5 through a teasing Tweet today. We know now that the newest season of the insanely popular free-to-play Battle Royale game available for all platforms, is only a few days away and this was really nice of them to finally confirm the date which we knew earlier from this month to be July 12, following the end of a thriving Season 4.

Speaking of tease, aside from making the announcement for their next season in the Tweet, developers have left another hint, which is a mask from a crack on screen and is going to break out in-game anytime. Like always, theorist fans are coming up with different ideas and booming up online with suggestions regarding the mask. It looks similar to kitsune or fox in Japanese, which shape-shifts into diverse forms and has supernatural powers according to Japanese yokai folklore.

We are in no position of making any solid meaning of the subtle clue left by Epic Games but this marks to be the first time Japan has been referenced in the game so far. Players have already ventured through history of ancient Egypt, pirate anchors and wooden carriages so far. Possibly themes of Ancient Japan might be explored or there are even chances for a time-travel. At this point, we are just spit balling and waiting for three more days to know what is waiting ahead of us all.

Considering the game is all about building and shooting, shifting forms and appearances may be a hint for introducing stealth, which is just a wild guess from us of course. Lately, the company had been in a beef with PUBG Corporation concerning a lawsuit over copyright violation on last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Since that case has been dropped afterwards, Epic Games is fully back on track with newest Season for their most successful game ever.

With help from SkyBox Labs, Microsoft has taken this joint effort to bring together their fan-base and increase the pleasure of playing together. One thing that seemed odd is that while both of these companies are promoting a competitor’s console so positively, Sony decides to be a grumpy old grandpa and not allowing cross-platform play on their consoles. They already are in a controversy regarding not letting players use their Epic Games accounts on PlayStation 4 for other consoles.

That situation has been worsened and the Minecraft developer team has been trying to reach out to them for some time to bring the experience to PS4 but they simply won't join the parade. Where Microsoft and Nintendo chooses to play together and survive together, Sony is probably rooting for survive alone and being left behind.
