After a break of over 2 months Fortnite is ready to launch it’s next season, season 8.
It has been a long time for fans of the game to wait and the timing may not have been ideal for such a break.
Rival Battle Royal game Apex Legends launched during this time and gained a huge 25 million players within a week.
With such an enormous following and in such a short space of time will Fortnite be able to entice their fans back?
So what do we know about the possible direction of Season 8 of Fortnite so far?
Since Valentines Day players have been experiencing earthquake tremors.
These have grown in intensity and now cracks have appeared on the island.
Fortnite’s creators have now started Tweeting teasers about the theme of the new season.
The first image was of a Pirate’s hook with the tag line –
‘X’ marks the spot, treasure abound.
Loot that has been lost, can always be found.
The next Tweet a day later was of a Cobra-like Snake with the text –
Sssomething shimmers within the cave,
But beware of those who arrive on waves.
The third Tweet, which included an image with a Tiger-like beast, came with the words –
Awaken beasts of fire and ash,
battle it out and loot the stash.
The 4th and final image came with these words –
Explore the world, challenge your fate.
Unearth the secrets, adventure awaits.
So now all 4 images have been released it it clear that they are all part of the same image.
So what can we predict may be included in the new Fortnite season 8?
Characters in the image leads us to believe there will be Pirates, Snakes, Tiger-like beasts and Bananas?!
The base of the image resembles a volcano, which could be related to the earthquakes and cracks in the map?
The skull-like image and Pirate Hook may mean the ice has melted and the game now has a nautical theme?
All will be revealed tomorrow when Season 8 is launched.
As always we here at Gaming Displays will also be launching our new Fortnite season range.
