When does Fortnite Season 11 start?

While there's no 'official' start date as such for Fortnite Season 11, October 6 is generally accepted to be the date people are expecting it to start.
That's because not only do Season 10's competitive events run until at least late September, but a PlayStation Store listing had October 6 down as the end of Season 10.
It's possible that while the previous season could end on that date (or earlier), we might not see the next season for a couple of weeks after that.
In the past, these strange limbo periods have been propped up by Epic Games with 'Overtime' challenges, which allow players to accrue experience and special rewards in the absence of a big content update.
What new locations will debut in Season 11?
Usually, each new season of Fortnite brings with it two or three new POIs (points of interest), often replacing old ones with thematically different takes on existing locations.
But ahead of Season 11, dataminers have managed to uncovered evidence for 12 brand new locations among the game's files.
Whether they'll replace older locations - and which ones they might usurp - remains to be seen; could Fortnite's map even be getting a size upgrade?
We'll just have to wait until Season 11 starts to find out.
What's happening in the game's 'story'?
While Fortnite - being a multiplayer focused game - doesn't have a 'story' per se, Epic Games make sure to keep players talking with a sort of meta narrative.
In game events and clues left by the developers hint at a plot going on around all the Battle Royale chaos, and occasionally we get big happenings, like the giant robot fight at the end of Season 9, or the volcano eruption that signalled the end of Season 8.
It's not yet known what the big event at the end of Season X might be, but players are already speculating.
The game's Visitor character had at one time set up shop at Dusty Depot, where he was building rift beacons which would later move around the map.
Now dataminers have uncovered the fact that the Visitor has built himself a rocket launching station with rocket.
Fortnite's first major event included a rocket flying around the map at the end of Season 4, so it could be that a similar rocket event is on the way.
Some fans have suggest that the rocket may be used to protect the island from an incoming meteor strike, while others have theorised that Season 11 will play with some sort of theme of the corruption of time.
The upcoming Dark Reflections pack - a physical release of in-game content - is scheduled to land smack bang in the middle of Season 11, and comes with the text: "Did the Cube ever corrupt, or was the darkness always there? Let your dark side take control while wearing the Dark Reflections pack!"
How much is a Battle Pass?
As usual, all players will be able to enjoy Season 10 of Fortnite for free, and even partake in some of the weekly challenges, but to get the most out of it you might want to opt for a Battle Pass.
It's expected that the Battle Pass will once again deliver 100 tiers to progress through by completing challenges and gaining in-game experience, with loot to unlock along the way.
There will be new cosmetics to unlock, meaning you'll be able to customise your character's look even more.
The Battle Pass will likely cost 950 V-Bucks (Fortnite's in-game currency).
The cheapest pack of V-Bucks you can buy is 1,000 for £7.99.
