Epic Games are updating Fortnite to bring in the highly anticipated Season 5.
The new season will reset all challenges and unlock a new ladder of levels for players to grind through.Â
New skins, cosmetics and emotes will become available throughout the season, but you can still buy some of the old items in theÂ Fortnite ItemÂ Shop.
Each day Epic Games will reset what is available to buy using V-Bucks, so keep your eyes open for your favourite skins in the shop.Â
Skins are everything in Fortnite – players spend hours grinding through challenges and racking up kills all in the name of earning skinsÂ andÂ cosmetics.Â
With Season 5 coming into the game tomorrow, Thursday, July 12, a whole new batch of skins and cosmetics will be entering theÂ game.
So far, fans have collected everything from Adonis statue skins to unicorn heads and superheroes, but Season 5 offers a new themeÂ to explore.Â
Fortunately, all the skins from Season 4 and before are still available for purchase in the Item Shop.
Using V-Bucks, the in-game currency, players can buy skins and cosmetics they may have missed throughout other seasons.Â

V-bucks are an extremely important premium currency in Fortnite, and there are several days ways to get your hands onÂ them.
The easiest way to get V-bucks in Fortnite is to simplyÂ loginÂ to the game each day.Â
Every day that youÂ loginÂ youâ€™ll receive a daily reward, and each day youâ€™ll have a chance for that daily reward to come outÂ as V-bucks.Â
On top of logging into the game, you can also complete daily and weekly quests which will grant you different rewards likeÂ Survivors, Heroes,Â Schematics, and also V-Bucks.Â
With Season 5 coming into the game tomorrow
Youâ€™ll often find at least one quest a day that you can complete for V-Bucks, so make sure youâ€™re doing those.Â
Quests can be found in both the Save the World and the Battle Royale game modes, making it easy to earn V-Bucks inÂ both versions of the gameÂ thatÂ isÂ currently available.
If grinding isnâ€™t your thing, you can always purchase V-Bucks with real money. This is the much easier method, but pricesÂ can quickly skyrocket ifÂ you want to collect lots of yourÂ favouriteÂ items.Â
â€˘Â 500 + 100 bonusÂ V-Bucks (plus the Rogue Agent outfit and Catalyst Black Bling backpack) – ÂŁ3.99/$4.99
â€˘Â 1000 V-Bucks – ÂŁ7.99/$9.99
â€˘Â 2500(+300 Bonus) V-Bucks – ÂŁ19.99/$24.99
â€˘Â 6000(+1500 Bonus) V-Bucks – ÂŁ49.99/$59.99
â€˘Â 10000(+3500 Bonus) V-BucksÂ – ÂŁ79.99/$99.99
V-bucks are an extremely important premium currency in Fortnite
It is worth noting that the Fortnite Season Battle Pass has previously cost 950 V-Bucks – equivalent to ÂŁ8/$10 – if you areÂ setting some V-BucksÂ aside for Season 5.Â
This may change, as Season 5 could be slightly longer than previous seasons – though nothing has been confirmed by EpicÂ Games as of yet.Â
The Battle Pass is valid for one season, which itself lasts for a few months.Â
Complete challenges to earn battle stars and progress through each of the Battle Passâ€™s 100 tiers, or you canÂ pay to unlock each tier for 150Â Fortnite V-Bucks.
