Season 6 will see a host of new content - including weekly challenges, skins and events.

After weeks of speculations and theories, Epic today launched the 6th season of its popular battle royale game Fortnite.

This time it features a masked cowgirl with the phrase "saddle up". That's where our Fortnite Season 6 wiki comes into play.

The Shadow Stones were a unique item birthed from that mysterious cube - dubbed "Kevin" by the internet - that left a burning path of runes in its wake before changing Loot Lake forever. You can't use your weapons when you are invisible, though, which only works when you are stationary. Known as Darkness Rises, the island has taken on a spookier theme with new locations such as the haunted castle and new consumable items like the shadow stone which can be found in corrupted areas of the map. In Shadow form, you'll also be able to run faster, jump higher, avoid fall damage and even pass through walls and ceilings. The storm circle has also been tweaked, reducing the wait time for each time the storm shrinks, though increasing the timer slightly during the shrinking phase.

But if everything does go smoothly, Fortnite fans could be enjoying season 6 by midday in the UK.


The season 6 update has added three small huts to the Fortnite Battle Royale island.

Console players can now choose their own button configurations, and those who play with a keyboard and mouse on PlayStation 4 will be matched with PC players so it's a little fairer for those playing with a controller.

Epic has vaulted the suppressed submachine gun, impulse grenade, light machine gun and remote explosives as well.

This could be a pretty big gameplay change for Fortnite, depending on how common Shadow Stones are, and how eager people may be to obtain them.

Players can find the full patch notes over at our sister site GameSpot.
