Season 6 is here, the darkness has risen and we’re jumping head first into it. Have you explored the corrupted areas? Enter Wailing Woods, face the corruption of the cube or visit the Haunted Castle while looking for the Shadow Stones to uncover their power. The next ten weeks of new skins, weapons and map enhancements will make this the best season yet. We’ve compiled a list below on what you need to know.
Let’s start with the new battle pass. You can get it now in-game for 950 v bucks. Once you buy it, you’ll instantly get two exclusive outfits, Calamity and DJ Yonder. The biggest change to the season 6 battle pass? Pets. When you level up your pass you’ll unlock Bonesy, Scales, and Camo who will be your companion as you trek across the map. Just like the other battle passes, you can compete in weekly challenges to level up.
Explore the new map with your passive sidekick and see what Epic has in store. New areas on the map include Floating Island, Corrupted Areas, Corn Fields and Haunted Castle. The Storm is always fast approaching and this season it’s bringing with it a new enemy. You’ll have to learn how to take down this tricky opponent.
Throughout the map – but typically in the corrupted areas – you’ll come across Shadow Stones which let you become one with the shadows. When you’re stationary you become invisible to your opponents. As you move, you’ll become more visible and leave behind a shadow trail. For the 45 seconds that the Shadow Form lasts, you’ll gain increased movement speed, jump height and fall damage immunity. You can also enter into Phase which can be activated by pressing the Primary Fire button and allows you to propel in the direction you are facing and allows you to pass through objects.
Launch into Season 6 and let us know what you think.
