Epic announced $8m Fortnite summer series

As a final housekeeping tip, remember that any replays saved during Fortnite Season 4 will not play via the in-game Replay System once Season 5 begins.

If the new Battle Pass is anything to go by, players will have ten weeks and 100 new tiers to unlock, packed to the rafters with new skins, gliders, pickaxes, emotes, loading screens, back bling and much more besides!

With the ramp up to Fortnite's Season 5 nearly concluded, it's safe to say that Epic Games poured a lot of time and investment into promoting the mysterious content of the forthcoming event. We'll do our best to provide insight on those as soon as possible. Season 5 will begin simultaneously across all platforms.

We'd bet on it being at least an hour, but because Season 5 looks to be a huge download, it may take longer to get things in order.

The latest tweet from Epic teases that "Worlds Collide" tomorrow, July 12th, with the launch of Fortnite Season 5.

Let's be honest in the run up to the start of Season 5 you'll have undoubebly seen all the various teasers and real world events that have been going on. It'll be interesting to see if Epic sticks to this date considering the delays we've seen on the rollout of specific features such as Playground LTM.
