In addition to map changes, there have also been weapons updates as well as new NPCs introduced. But as is the nature of gamers, many are already peeking ahead as to what the next phase of Fortnite may have in store.
Here's everything we know so far about Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 9 including the release date, events, and much more.
When does Chapter 2 Season 9 of Fortnite start?
As of writing, Epic Games has yet to confirm the official start date of Chapter 2 Season 9. However, the game devs have provided us with the end date of Chapter 2 Season 8, which serves to the same effect.
Chapter 2 Season 9 of Fortnite should start on Monday, 6th December 2021 following the conclusion of Season 8 on 5th December. The beginning of the workweek should serve as a natural break-point for a Monday patch update.
Fortnite Winterfest - Chapter 2 Season 9
Leaks from respected Fortnite sources suggest the return of an ultra-popular promotion may be imminent. Popular leaker ShiinaBR recently posted a tweet containing some exciting information from a pulled Fortnite file.
Winterfest was an awesome holiday-themed event from previous years of Fortnite, and the Presents are simply free gifts for all Fortnite players, always a hit.
Chapter 2 Season 9 Battle Pass
Epic Games have not yet announced anything regarding the upcoming battle pass for Chapter 2 Season 9. With weeks left on the Season 8 pass and the recent release of the Shortnitemares film festival, game devs will likely wait for a less hectic time to drop the news.
Though if Season 9 follows a winter and or holiday theme, the battle pass will likely feature content reflective of that. It will certainly be interesting to see how game developers chose to progress the storyline.
