Fortnite Season 5 leak: Baby Yoda, ‘Crew’ Subscription & more

Nicholas Sakadelis

Leaks have surfaced regarding the next Season of Fortnite, coming with Baby Yoda and The Mandalorian skins.

The fifth season of Fortnite is expected to launch in just a week, on December 2, and it looks like the Battle Pass will bring an element of the popular Star Wars Disney Plus series, The Mandalorian.

For the two main characters, The Mandalorian and “Baby Yoda” or, The Child – will be available as a character skin and backpack bling, respectively.

The below image comes from data miner ShiinaBR and showcases the new preview image from the next season.

It’s unclear if the new season will come with a huge Star Wars overhaul, however, it would be interesting to see Disney allow Epic to use the Star Wars license for gameplay elements and events like they did with the Marvel superheroes.

Currently, it’s not confirmed, but we could also see The Mandalorian appear as the “secret” skin or the Tier 100 skin in the Battle Pass.

The Crew Subscription Service

Epic will also be bringing a subscription service to Fortnite in Season 5. The subscription will be called “The Crew” membership and will cost $11.99 a month.

The service will include the Battle Pass each season, 1,000 V-bucks every month, and an exclusive crew skin, featuring a brand new skin for members each month. The first skin will be the Galaxia skin. You can watch the trailer below.

In terms of value, this subscription service seems to give roughly $30+ of value per month for the $11.99 price tag. Each item in the subscription would go for $10 alone, and skins can be up to $20, so the true value of this subscription could be $40 a month, for just $11.99.

For any regular Fortnite player, this is a great way to get some stylish skins without breaking the bank. The Crew membership, The Mandalorian, and The Child are all expected to launch in Fortnite on December 2.
