New Fortnite Battle Royale seasons are always exciting since they come with numerous new challenges, weapons, skins and many other surprises. There have been 7 different seasons so far, and the 8th one is finally here. The Fortnite Season 8 also comes with many novelties. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Epic Games already confirmed that the new season will be out on Thursday, February 28th, and the update will be available for all platforms. There will be a new series of changes, as well as a new battle pass, the way we are already accustomed.
Releasing a new season is always a huge event, as it manages to offer the game a small reset. In the past, we have seen numerous major changes, including some that changed the Fortnite map.
Fortnite Season 8 Is Finally Here
The server downtime for the update will start at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT / 8 PM AET. We can’t tell you how much that will last, but since the update is a big one, you should expect the game to download in at least a couple of hours for the new Season 8 to reach to Fortnite Battle Royale.
We already received a couple of teaser images that contained several clues. There have been numerous references which revealed that pirates are the theme of the new season of Fortnite Battle Royale. The first clue was “X marks the spot” which is supposed to help us get to a “lost treasure,” followed by a warning for “those who arrive on the waves.”
The other hints also included information which might be connected to the new skins of Season 8. For instance, a banana with a face might be one of the upcoming skins. There should be some gameplay new additions as well, especially since players noticed several earthquakes in the game recently. However, soon we’ll find out everything about Fortnite Season 8.
