Fortnite Season 8 Gets All Piratey & Adds Volcanoes, Lava & Tons More

By Suzie Ford on February 28, 2019 | News | 0

Fortnite Battle Royale has been updated to Season 8 that brings the new Battle Pass on board. Players can earn over a hundred new rewards including the wicked Blackheart pirate skin (YARR!). Season 8 comes along with some big changes to the map including "a monstrous volcano" where "pirates, ninjas and a ship load of new fighters will tussle over treasure, battle with Pirate Cannons and uncover legendary loot".

Players will find new hazards to overcome and new locations to explore and danger lurking around every corner.

Other components of Season 8 Battle Royale:

  • Pirate Cannon weapon
  • Lava hazard
  • Volcanic Vents to "boost players and vehicles into the sky in a gust of hot air"
  • LTM 50v50
  • LTM Close Encounters with shotguns and jetpacks

Season 8's Battle Pass is available for 950 V-Bucks or it can be earned for free by completing thirteen Overtime Challenges during Share the Love. Battle Bundles also yield some additional awesome loot.

For Creative players, there is the new Jungle Temple Theme to mess with that allows players to set up "deadly traps or harrowing trials". 

Save the World players will find that Hero Loadout has been retooled completely that gives players to "customize playstyle by mixing and matching new and unique perks for each Hero". Players can choose a Commander and five Support members and a team perk to form the perfect squad. In addition, there are eight new quests, with each one unlocking a new Hero. "More Heroes, more combos!"
