Fortnite Season 6 is upon us and a terrible power has been unleashed upon Fortnite Island with the new update, Darkness Rises.

Corrupted areas have popped up all over the battlefield, spawning Shadow Stones. Consume them to uncover their hidden powers. But all is not bleak – we can get pets now. Pets! In Fortnite! Fortnite Pets!

Fortnite Season 6’s biggest new addition is pets that join you as you tear across the battlefield. Level up your Battle Pass tiers and you will eventually get access to Bonesy, Scales, and Camo, who will accompany you in your Fortnite Battle Royale efforts.

Pets won’t fight with you – they are just a visual aspect of the game and will react to what is going on around you in any moment. Keep an eye on VG247 for the weekly challenges, so you can unlock your Fortnite pets even faster.

All of these additions, as always, join a new map for Fortnite Season 6 – take a look at the changes at that link.
