 Season 8 rumors & speculation

With less than 10 days left until Season 8, rumors have been circulating about what will happen with the new season. A source from GamingIntel showed an alleged screen-grab of the Season 8 update which seems to suggest there will be earthquakes that change Tilted Towers and Polar Peak. This can’t be confirmed as the page now leads to a 404 error, but Epic does typically make slight modifications to the map each season. Other changes allegedly include updates to Save The World heroes and the official launch of Fortnite Creative.

What we do know is that the previously snow-covered map has been slowly melting and the defrost has uncovered what appear to be dragon eggs. Could dragons be on the horizon just in time for Game of Thrones?

Fortnite Season 8 release time if we assume the game's usual patch time:

  • UK: 9am (BST)
  • Europe: 10am (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 4am (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 1am (PDT)

User Feedback



I have heard a lot of speculation on season 8 and other ideas from friends of mine and one in particular thinks that the cracks from the earthquakes in the northeast corner of the map is going to be bringing the volcano and linked it back to the Aztecs with sacrificing the virgin and something else to do with Tomato Town. They also believe the Block will be moved in order to keep the featured place going every week
