With the start of Season 8 closing in, Epic has already made changes to the game before its arrival. On top of that, “overtime challenges” are now available to every user. Make sure you complete them in time to earn yourself a FREE Battle Ppass for Season 8.
Fortnite has been going through a series of drastic changes with the emergence of Apex Legends. Free Battle Pass, new LTMs, and other such changes were implemented quickly by the developers to keep up with the competition that came out of nowhere. With almost every user grinding towards a free Battle Pass, the launch of Season 8 is the most anticipated start to the season in the game’s history.
Let’s take a look at what season 8 holds in store for us.
Pirate Themed Season?

Epic’s latest Season 8 teaser points towards a pirate-themed season. Previous seasons had pirate-themed treasure map challenges in them and Season 8 could see the return of such challenges.
In the past week, Epic developers have confirmed that they might introduce Apex Legends style respawning into the game. In Apex Legends, players can bring back their eliminated teammates using a re-spawn beacon. Once a player is back in the game, recovering lost loot might be what is referenced in the tweet.
For now, expect a pirate costume with the Season 8 Battle Pass.
Map Changes – ‘The Crackening’
Tremors have frequently occurred towards the end of Season 7 suggesting major tectonic changes. Cracks can be found on the surface of Dusty Divot and other locations. Depending on the severity of the next upcoming live-event, we might see the map divide itself into continents. Traveling through water might come into the mix along with pirate ships and other water-related elements.
One thing is for sure, a major event similar to the Ice-King Event is going to take place and this time it’s not going to be just a change in the climate. All leaks suggest that separate island is going to emerge in Season 8.
X-4 Stormwing Vaulted
The X-4 Stormwing is going to vaulted by the end of Season 7. Majority of the pro players had issues with “planes” being an over-powered item in the game. Streamers were also voicing out the fact that planes encourage “stream sniping”.
Over the past few days, it’s been confirmed that Season 8 is going to start without the X-4 Stormwing. We are yet to find out whether a new improved mode of air-transport might be introduced.
When Does Season 8 Start? How Much Does the Battle Pass Cost?
Season 8 is set to start on the 28th of February and the battle pass is set to be priced at 950 v-buck ($10 USD).
Make sure you complete 13 Overtime challenges in case you want to get the battle pass for free. Also “Snowtime Challenges” are offering various additional options to existing outfits. With just 3 days remaining, make sure you complete of all the available challenges to get the full value of the Season 7 Battle Pass. Don’t forget, the deadline is on the 28th of February.
