Fortnite Season 6 Skins LEAKED: PS4 Store reveals FIRST New Season 6 Battle Pass Skins (Pic: EPIC GAMES)
Fortnite's main Season 6 image appears to have leaked via the PlayStation Store this evening WAY ahead of the Season 6 launch coming tomorrow morning.
As noted by the Fornite Battle Royale Leaks Twitter account the leakec PlayStation image appears to show not only the upcoming skins for the new season, but also, PETS!
Which was one of the many heavily rumoured new features.
It's worth noting that the main image for Season 5 showed the Drift Skin, Huntress Skin and Sledgehammer Skin, all part of the Battle Pass.
So it's safe to assume that perhaps the skins shown on the Season 6 image are also three of the main skins available in the upcoming Battle Pass.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it and keep reading to look over some of the other heavily rumoured new features with Season 6
Fortnite Season 6 – Custom Battle Bus
In the datamine for patch 5.40, players have managed to determine that different Battle Buses will be coming to the game.
Thanks to a text field in the title, we learned Fortnite will:
"Randomly chooses between favorite Battle Buses (or all owned Battle Buses if nothing is marked as a favorite)"
One example we've seen so far is a Purple Battle bus (which we know about thanks to game files) though we've not seen it yet.
Fortnite Season 6 – Weapon Skins
The same patch revealed that we'll see a large number of high profile weapons get custom skin options, too.
This is something that's been requested heavily by the Fortnite community and is a great addition to the game – despite having a third-person view that obscures your weapon from your own view most of the time.
No skin examples have been leaked just yet, but we're expecting to hear more about them soon.
Fortnite Season 6 – Hats
Rumours abound that Fortnite will be getting hats soon, too. A set of leaks taken from datamined files of the newest build of the game suggests makeovers to older costumes could be coming to the game, supported by new custom headwear.
Data suggested that “favorite_hat,” “favorite_vehicledeco,” and “favorite_mapmarker” would be introduced to the game.
Coming off the back of the Tomato head that was introduced to the game recently, it would make sense to see more custom head items introduced – and for Epic it makes sense: more items to unlock means more rewards for players, and another revenue stream introduced to the game, too.
Fortnite Season 6 – New Consumables
Part of the version 5.40 datamine has revealed a new consumable items called 'Balloons'.
From the text supporting the item, it appears the consumable helps players gracefully fall, float and possibly fly – similar to the Hop Rocks item we've seen before.
'Rapid inflate balloons to help break your fall or soar to new heights!' reads the item description.
We're intrigued to see how this is going to work in-game.
