After plenty of speculation about when Fortnite's next season would arrive - and some even suggesting it could be severely delayed - Epic has announced season six is arriving next week.

Players will finally be able to discover the next chapter in the Fortnite story on September 27th. Until then, you may want to make the most of the last days of season five: there's a whopping 400 per cent match XP boost in action this weekend to help you reach those higher levels. Unfortunately no amount of XP boost can save me from my terrible building skills. RIP my dreams of reaching level 100.

It's still something of a mystery as to what this season's theme will be, but given the cube recently transformed Loot Lake into a giant trampoline, it could be related to this in-game event. Other fan theories have hypothesised a dark mirror world with lava, while the Fortnite account also teased a "frozen forewarning" skin earlier today. Fire and ice, anyone?
