Fortnite: Battle Royale – Season 8 Rumors, Leaks And Teasers

Season 8 is dangerously close to release, and Epic has gone quiet after the Operation: Sky Fire event, which ended on a cliffhanger, bringing the Cube from Chapter 1 back into the game. Small teasers and hints have been released, and in this guide, we go over all the rumors, leaks and teasers involving Chapter 2, Season 8 of Fortnite.

Release Date

Season 8 is slated for release on September 13, 2021, tomorrow, 12 hours after Sky Fire.

Official Teasers

Teaser 1

So, apparently there’s going to be a horse outfit next season: Fabio Sparklemane.

Teaser 2

More Anime-esque Outfits?

Teaser 3

Some sort of Russian chimp??

Teaser 4

A video has released showing small bits of the changed map, as well as showing off a potential Carnage outfit.

What You Need To Do Before Fortnite Season 8

We have only a few more days left until the launch of Fortnite’s eighth season, which means that there is some finishing up to be done before we head into the next season – whether is be related to cosmetics, XP, V-Bucks or the game itself. Most of these special items/locations/cosmetics will be gone by the time Season 8 launches. In this guide, we go over all you need to do before Season 8 arrives.

  • Finish Up Your Battle Pass – Your Battle Pass level will be reset next season, so finish up the Battle Pass to unlock the Rick Sanchez outfit and use any other Battle Stars for bonus rewards and enlightened of the Battle Pass outfits. Try to also unlock the Kymera styles by collecting Alien Artifacts, complete the Superman quests to unlock Clark Kent and the Epic quests to unlock Clark’s cosmetics and styles.
  • Secure Your V-Bucks – Next season’s Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks, and around 2,500 for the Battle Bundle, so be sure to have enough V-Bucks at hand when Season 8 launches.
  • Spend All Your Bars – Your bars will be reset next season, so it’s probably a good idea to spend them all before the season begins. Plus, a new Legendary quest was added which had Human Bill offer you to spend a bunch of gold in exchange for XP, so there’s really no excuse. Bars can be used to purchase exotic weapons and hire characters.
  • Talk To Every Character – Characters can be found all over the map, and there’s a big collection book where you can find information on each one. Their descriptions are only readable if you talk to them and if you talk to every one, you get an achievement!
  • Try Out New Weapons/Items – Season 7 introduced new IO tech like the Pulse Rifle and Rail Gun, as well as Alien weapons like the Kymera Ray Gun and Alien Nanites.
  • Win And Unlock The Seasonal Umbrella – This season’s seasonal victory umbrella is the Invasion Umbrella, which you unlock from winning in Solos, Duos, Squads or LTMs like Tilted Taxis, Solid Gold, Arsenal, etc. (Not Team Rumble)

Apple Will Have To Accept Other In-App Purchases, Epic Vs. Apple Hearing Declares

We got another Epic Vs. Apple court case hearing today, which should serve as one of the final hearings for a while. Some details were revealed by The Verge and iFireMonkey on Twitter.

This order was also released recently:

Apple is permanently restrained and enjoined from prohibiting developers from including in their apps and their metadata buttons, external links, or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms, in addition to In-App Purchasing and communicating with customers through points of contact obtained voluntarily from customers through account registration within the app.

The Verge

To sum it up, Apple is no longer allowed to prohibit developers from using third-party payment systems, which was the main reason why Fortnite was banned from the App Store in the first place. This is a pretty big deal for other game developers looking to have their games on iOS operating systems and making a good chunk of money from it. Epic CEO Tim Sweeney was not a fan of the new changes, however, claiming that the new rule still was not fair for game developers or consumers.

Fortnite has not returned to the App Store just yet, but Sweeney has mentioned that it will when both Apple and Epic payment systems can coexist at the same time.

What Will The Theme Of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 Be?

Chapter 2, Season 7 is nearing it’s final moments, and with the Operation: Sky Fire live event mere days away, the community’s hype for Season 8 is growing steadily. Like with Season 5, 6, and 7, a lot of information is under wraps, so a lot of the speculation here consists of rumors and leaks, leaving a lot of room for theorizing. Will the Foundation return in any way to enact revenge on IO? Will we see massive pyramids and ancient heroes or will we see the return of an old friend from Chapter 1? All of this and more are answered in this guide.

Season 8 Release

Season 8 is slated for release on September 13, 2021, ending Season 7 with the Sky Fire event. The event should bring us into downtime for at least 12 hours like what happened with Season 5, which means the update won’t go live until the morning of September 13.

Possibilities

Egyptian Theme?

Leaks from various leakers in the community (Including @HYPEX) have stated that pyramids and cactus consumables will be making their way to the game in Season 8. An Egyptian theme for next season will be a complete shift in tone from the science fiction nature of Season 7, but it seems entirely possible.

Spooky/Darkness Season? The Cube?

Recently, an unknown insider has been revealing things about the game: Things like Ariana Grande coming to the game for a crossover, or the Suicide Squad coming over with the Bloodsport outfit. A new leak claims that the Cube will return, along with the Sideways, a new feature that will reportedly be a parallel dimension, kind of like the Upside Down from Netflix’s Stranger Things. An older loading screen from 3 years ago suggests that the Upside Down is the reflection shown on the right side of the screen, the one with Dark Bomber. This could tie into a spooky season, especially with all of the “First Shadows” stuff the Fortnite Crew is doing.

Fortnite: What the Week 10 Loading Screen Looks Like (Season 5)
Chapter 1 Connections?

At first, people theorized that the Chapter 1 and 2 seasons had some sort of connection between them. C1S1 and C2S1 were plain and simple, being about a fresh start. C1S2 and C2S2 were rather different, but C1S3 and C2S3 had space-themed elements in them. C1S4 and C2S4 is where the theory goes into overdrive, as both seasons involved superheroes and a genius coming from another world to build a device (The Visitor and Tony Stark). C1S5 and C2S5 both focused on deserts and worlds colliding, and C1S6/C2S6 had some minor similarities. Both had wolves, castle-like structures, corrupted people and a landmark where the Zero Point was. C2S7 is where the theory dies out, as the two seasons have little similarities. Both have a massive group of people (A.I.M soldiers and aliens) arriving onto the Island and feature a crossover with a pop music sensation (Marshmello and Ariana Grande) but other than that, there’s not much both Season 7s had in common. Hopefully Chapter 2, Season 8 revives the theory, and features some elements from Chapter 1, Season 8, like pirates, ancient civilizations and walking bananas.

Secret Outfit

Every season since Chapter 2, Season 2 (Season 12) has seen a collaboration outfit taking the role of the secret outfit. Season 12 had Deadpool, 13 had Aquaman, 14 had Wolverine, 15 had Predator, 16 had Neymar Jr. and 17 had Clark Kent/Superman. We’re not entirely sure who the secret outfit for Season 18 is, but seeing how we have rumors that Naruto’s coming to the game, we could see him be available as the bonus character.

Fortnite: Battle Royale – Operation: Skyfire Live Event Guide

Operation: Skyfire is the official name for the live event to cap off Fortnite Season 7, which should take us to the skies to bomb the Mothership. This event will be on September 12, at 4 PM ET and will focus on the climax of the conflict between IO and the Last Reality, which should lead into Season 8.

Updates

There are no official updates or delays as of September 3.

The Story

After Raz’s abuse of the Spire’s power attracted the attention of the Last Reality, an alien race, Doctor Slone has arrived on the Island to gather operatives (Including us, the player) to spy on the aliens, mindwipe citizens and investigate suspicious activity. While the IO have been doing this, the Last Reality have been abducting POIs and scanning Loopers’ memories, which forced Slone to build a bomb to destroy the Mothership with.

Time, Date And Location

The event will be on September 12, at 4 PM ET. Time zones are listed below.
