Epic Games’ battle royale game, Fortnite, is ready to enter its eighth season, and fans around the world can’t wait. Many new things were introduced in Season 7, such as the alien invasion and live performances. A teaser trailer for Season 8 of Fortnite has been released by the game’s official Twitter account while the servers are offline for maintenance and degradation.
Fortnite’s seventh season came to a close on September 12th, 2021, with a massive live event in which players discovered Kevin the Cube, the luminous purple hallways of the alien mothership, and an explosion that threw everyone out of the ship.
‘To be continued’ appeared on the screens of players at the end of the live event as the final visual cue. An end timer appeared on the screen after the game ended, letting players know the game would return on Monday, September 13, 2021.

In a series of tweets, Fortnite Status also claims that during the Cube takeover, gamers will be unable to play Fortnite before the server shutdown.

More will be released upon the official launch of Fortnite Season 8.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 Battle Pass
In Season 8, a Redditor with an excellent track record for accurate leaks has highlighted several events that are likely to happen. That Uzumaki Naruto would appear in the game has now been confirmed as one of the primary leaks. Superman and Rick Sanchez could headline the battle pass in Season 7 of Naruto. Even if this isn’t the most believable leak, Epic questioned users months ago about adding Naruto to the game.
Doctor Slone collaborating with Lex Luthor and Batman was revealed in the Batman and Fortnite: Zero Point comic, which all but guarantees the possibility of further DC crossover skins being released to the game.
There are a couple of DC characters we haven’t heard about yet, like Bloodsport from The Suicide Squad finding his way into the battle royale game. Shazam and Green Lantern, two additional DC heroes, are expected to join Fortnite at some point in Season 8.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 Leaks
According to the source, the fabled Cube will make an appearance after Season 7 under the authority of an unknown Queen character. The ‘Sideways,’ a new mechanic for Season 8, is also coming. This is a nod to Demogorgon’s other reality, the Upside Down, from the hit Netflix series Stranger Things.
Monsters have been rumored to inhabit the Sideways, but not all of them are dangerous. Season 8 will include rideable mechs and monsters to the game, implying that the Sideways also generate creatures that aren’t going to eat us right out of the water.
If the sources are to be believed, we may be getting another Mad Max-related movie in the works as well. Images of cactus textures and references to pyramids in the game code were revealed by leaker HypeX.
Starter packs are also available for those who want to get their feet wet. The “Fallen Light” package includes the “Dark Blessing” tool, “Shattered Hope” back-bling, and the “Dark Blessing” clothing.
