Thanks to reliable Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi, we know of some key Fortnite Season 9 Battle Pass details. This includes the Season 9 Battle Pass release date.

Fortnite Season 9 will begin once Season 8 ends. Season 8 is set to end on May 8, 2019. This means that the Season 9 Battle Pass for Fortnite will likely go live on May 8 or 9, 2019. Traditionally, Weekly challenges go live every Thursday, so it would make sense. Expect it to go live by the end of next week, certainly.

The Season 9 Battle Pass in Fortnite will end on July 24, 2019, if the leak is to be believed.

As per the leak from Lucas7yoshi, we also know how expensive the Season 9 Battle Pass will be in Fortnite. Fortunately, Epic Games has not put up the price of the Battle Pass. This means that when it does go live it should set you back 950 V-Bucks. It’ll set you back just under $9.99 to purchase the Season 9 Battle Pass.

During the duration of the Battle Pass, you will be able to earn in-game items and rewards worth up to the value of 3,500 V-Bucks. Whether it’s worth it is entirely up to you.

Unfortunately, we know very little about the actual contents of the Season 9 Battle Pass. It’s a shame, too, that there doesn’t look like any way of earning the Battle Pass for free this time around (as you could for Season 8).

If you take a look back at previous Battle Passes, however, you will see that you can earn plenty of rewards for purchasing them. This includes access to Battle Pass challenges alongside the free set each week, new skins, items, and other cosmetics. All told, the complete Fortnite experience is always available for those who buy the Battle Pass.
