The Fortnite Fall Skirmish is on, letting players compete for their share of a huge pool of cash.

Season 6 of Fortnite is nearly here. After much speculation–and a rather bizarre turn of events related to the mysterious purple cube that has been rolling around the island–Epic has finally confirmed when the new season of its massively popular battle royale game will begin, and it’s very soon.
The developer announced on Twitter that Season 6 will begin next Thursday, September 27.
