The Battle Pass for Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2 isn’t as star-studded as its predecessor.
Fortnite started off Chapter 4 with a loaded Battle Pass for season one. Not only was it headlined by The Ageless Champion, a youthful snapshot of the game’s main villain, Geno, but it included not one but two huge crossover characters. The Doom Slayer/Doom Guy from the iconic video game series Doom, and Geralt of Rivia, the main character of the Witcher franchise.
The Battle Pass was stacked. The secondary characters were fine, and they may be someone’s favorite outfits, but the pass was headlined by three characters mainly. The Chapter 4, Season 2 Battle Pass doesn’t have the same star power by any means.
Sure, the mid-season outfit is Eren Yaeger from Attack on Titan and that’ll get some fans hyped, but mostly it’s the only major outfit that is attached to the Pass. So Season 2 isn’t hitting as hard as Season 1 did.
Yet, the Season 2 Battle Pass was far more on-brand than Season 1.
Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2 Battle Pass is more on-brand for its season
Dubbed “MEGA”, Fortnite’s second season of chapter four is leaning hard into the Japanese aesthetic. All of the new elements of the season borrow from Japan to some degree. From drifting cars to a samurai sword, to an enter new Neo Tokyo point of interest fans can explore.
The game has definitely leaned into embracing an eastern presence.
That’s maybe no more evident than in the Pass for season two. Eren Yaeger is one of the biggest pop culture creations in Japan currently going, and at least five of the Battle Pass outfits are inspired by, or directly connected to Japanese customs, traditions or designs.
Clearly, they’re going all out repping Japan this season and that’s a far more on-brand for Fortnite than the season one Battle Pass.
