Fortnite season 6 is nearly here – after an unexpected delay – and Epic has provided the first official teaser for the big update. It’s a robot llama that looks very much like a masked DJ. Not only is this likely the first skin in the upcoming battle pass, combined with some recent leaks it’s giving us a strong hint about the season 6 theme.
Our disco llama is accompanied by a streak of purple lightning, and the familiar visage of Kevin (you know, the cube) is visible in the background. Epic adds the caption “all great parties need a DJ.” Season 5 teases began with with a kitsune-style mask – the same mask that comes alongside the Drift skin you unlock at the first tier of the battle pass. Disco llama might be a similarly early unlock.
Datamines earlier this month courtesy of FNBRLeaks dug up a handful of potential new cosmetic categories for Fortnite, including pets and weapon skins. There’s also an option for music packs in the new files – perhaps our friendly llama DJ is the harbinger of a music theme for season 6.
The Fortnite season 6 release date is coming up fast, currently set for September 27 assuming there are no further delays. Sadly, the bonus XP event is over, but the Fortnite week 10 challenges have now stretched on for a fortnight – if you haven’t got them yet, follow that link for a full guide.
