With the dramatic spy theme, Fortnite's developer Epic Games has asked the gamers to pick sides for this season 2 in which the players will face specific challenges and get rewards based on their choice. They will also be able to visit all new points of interest on the game map that includes luxury yacht, volcano hideout, opulent mansion and more. In these points, the gamers can face off against NPCs from their opposing faction for some good loot rewards.

The gaming company also revealed that some of the new weapons for this season, such as new decoy grenades, probably mines and disguises that all play nicely with the theme.

As per the Epic Games, Fortnite Season 2 will be a larger patch than normal and they specifically said that this trend will continue throughout the season 2 as more is added to the game. However, it should be noted that this season the battle pass will cost the regular 950 V-bucks (around $10) but if a player can fully level it up then they can earn a total of 1,500 V-Bucks.
