With Fortnite Season 7 officially into ‘overtime,’ having gone on over the usual 10-week duration we’ve seen in the past, Epic is sharing the love. Not only have we got Overtime challenges to be grinding out, there’s also a free Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass up for grabs. Here’s what you need to know to get one.
How to Get the Free Season 8 Battle Pass
There’s not a whole lot you need to know to nab yourself the free Battle Pass for next season. All it requires is taking part in and completing the Overtime challenges that just went live in Fortnite.
Specifically, you need to complete 13 Overtime challenges to get the free Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass. That means you can save yourself 950 V-Bucks in a couple weeks time for just playing the game and completing some pretty simple challenges.
If you’re having any particular troubles completing the Overtime challenges, we’ve got you covered down below.
