Fortnite Season 8 looks to be themed around pirates

Fortnite Season 8 will drop in just 4 days and it looks like it’s going to be themed around pirates.

A teaser tweet from Epic has strongly suggested that pirates will be the theme of the day. And I mean, if the ‘X Marks the Spot’ clue didn’t give it away, the hook may just be the hint you were looking for.


There have been some interesting cracks happening across the map, linked to small earthquakes, which suggests this will play a significant part in what’s to come.

While Season 8 is still shrouded in mystery, what we do know for sure is that the current update lets you earn the entire Battle Pass for free.

We’re only a few days away so more news is definitely coming but we’ll share as soon as we learn anything more.
