Fortnite hints at Season 8’s theme.
Fortnite has hinted at the theme of season 8 via a tweet. With a little rhyme, they seem to hint at a pirate theme as a follow-up to the winter theme of season 7.
Update 3: And there is number four. Another rhyme, another picture. And especially for you, a complete picture too!

Take a look, there is illustration number three. As you can see there is a strange beast on it, but luckily a rhyme has been added with a short, cryptic explanation.
Or fire and ash
Battle it out
And loot the stash.

Apparently Fortnite is making a nice collection of announcements for Fortnite season 8. They tweeted a second rhyme yesterday in the same form as the first. More and more it looks like we’re going to get a pirate theme folks!
Within the cave …
But beware of those
Who arrive on waves.

An observant Twitterer merged the two posted images and made a clever comment that together they will look a lot like a skull. We continue to puzzle and keep you informed.
Original: In three days, Season 8 of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode, the hyper-popular game from Epic Games, will begin. For days, speculations have been rife about how the transition from Season 7 to Season 8 will take place, but now the official Fortnite Twitter account itself is leaving a big hint as to what theme to expect for the new season:
‘X’ Marks The Spot
Loot that has been lost
Can always be found.

So it seems that Season 8 has a pirate theme, if we interpret this hint correctly. Fortnite Season 7 certainly had a distinct winter theme, including a major in-game event where a gigantic sphere filled with ice hung over the world from scratch and eventually covered the entire map with snow. There are only a few rumors about whether there will be another event on this scale before the start of Season 8. In any case, we will keep an eye on it for you.
People are finding strange cracks all over Fortnite’s map. Nobody knows what they mean, but there are theories. You can read more about it here. Also nice to read; a company sets up a Fortnite event and goes all out. Check that here.
