Fortnite season 5 Vikings CONFIRMED: Epic Games reveal new time travel Battle Pass clue

Epic is continuing to tease Fortnite Season 5 ahead of the changeover later this week. 

Yesterday, we had a tease via Twitter that showed a Japanese mask and part of the rift above the arena in-game. Today, we've got a new image that appears to tease Vikings.

The image shows what appears to be a Viking axe striking the 'screen' and causing a crack like those we see in-game.

This plays into the idea that the game will be moving towards a time-travel theme - something supported by leaked assets of the Wild West, a series of Egyptian assets and other items related to bygone eras cropping up in the game over the last week.

Either way, we're going to find out what Season 5 of Fortnite's Battle Pass will be themed after when it launches on July 11 2018 (provided no extended downtime occurs...)

When will Fortnite Season 4 end?

Epic has been running a countdown in-game to show players how long they have to complete tasks, before the Battle Pass is taken away ahead of being replaced by Season 5's.

Players get an extra two days to complete all their tasks - just over 18 hours at the time of writing - thanks to previous issues with Season crossovers before

So if you're keen to grab everything you can in Fortnite Season 4, you're going to want to grab what you can over the next day.

Fortnite Season 4 will end on July 11 2018.

When will Fortnite Season 5 start? 

Fortnite season 5 is set for a release date of Thursday, July 12

That'll make the new season go live one day after Season 4 ends.

According to Epic, you can expect the Season to go live at 9am BST, 4am ET and 1am PT.

Do be aware, however, that Epic has previously delayed these start times thanks to the backend works it needs to carry out on servers when these changeovers happen - so bear that in mind and prepare for delays ahead of the new Season going live.
