Fortnite is in Season 7 territory, and there’s a plethora of exciting content to explore in the update. Still, some fans are already looking ahead to all the new changes that Epic Games are planning for the Fortnite Season 8 start.
Fortnite Season 6 has ended its memorable run, and Season 7 is already proving to be an exciting new start with all the impressive content that’s being added. This includes major map changes, UFOs, and a Superman skin.
Now, quite a few players have started looking ahead to the next major update. There is mass speculation about when Season 8 will arrive and how it will change the battle royale. Here’s what we know about it.
When does Fortnite Season 7 end?
According to notable data miner HYPEX, the Chapter 2, Season 7 Battle Pass, will expire on September 12, 2021. If this is true, then the Fortnite Season 8 start might come with an exciting Halloween-themed battle pass.
Data miners were able to pull this information from the game files after Epic Games temporarily shut down the servers while they implemented the new patch. However, this date isn’t set in stone.
Sometimes, the developers decide to add more content to the battle royale than previously planned. If that’s the case, we could see Season 7 extended to last a while longer.
When does Fortnite Season 8 start?
Generally, the new season launches as soon as the previous one comes to an end. We expect to see Fortnite Season 8 start on 13 September, right after the Season 7 end date.
It’s too soon to tell whether or not Season 7 will have an epic live finale or some solo outing that you can join at any point. Hopefully, the current season will have a memorable conclusion that will kick off the Fortnite Season 8 start.
However, the inclusion of a live event does not usually alter the start and end dates for Fortnite seasons based on the Battle Pass timer, so players can expect to see the above date be adhered to unless something major occurs in the game’s development.
How much will the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass cost?
While we don’t know the exact cost of the Season 8 Battle Pass yet, it will probably cost 950 V-Bucks. You’ll be able to purchase the smallest bundle containing 1,000 V-Bucks for $7.99 / £6.49 from the Item Shop.
If you want to unlock the first 25 tiers of the Battle Pass right away, then you can spring for the Battle Bundle upgrade, costing $19.99 / £15.99. This will grant you 2.500 V-Bucks, along with an additional 300 for free.
The past couple of Battle Passes have contained skins for characters from other popular entertainment franchises across video games, movies, television, and comic books, so it would not be shocking to see the Season 8 Battle Pass for Chapter 2 continue this trend with some high-profile crossover cosmetic items.
We’ll be sure to update this article as more details about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8, become available, so stay tuned!
