Developer Epic Games has confirmed the next season of the Battle Royale phenomenon is arriving on schedule, tweeting a blood-red teaser image depicting a pirate’s hook.

The next season of Fortnite will be maritime-themed, it seems, with the current line of thinking predicting that the new season will bring a thaw to the snow and ice that has covered the map across Season 7. It looks like we will also see the appearance of some mean looking snakes, if the second teaser is anything to go by, pointing to the mysterious eggs in the basement of Polar Peak’s castle.

Fortnite’s success shows no signs of abating. Season 7 was its biggest ever, bringing significant changes to the map and a new mode in the form of Fortnite Creative.

Towards the end of last year Epic Games said that Fortnite had topped 200 million registered players. A report said the free-to-play game made $2.4bn from microtransactions and battle passes across 2018; the most annual revenue of any game in history. And on 2 February, the game had its biggest day ever with 10.7m players online. Notably helped by the live in-game concert by DJ Marshmello.

That it continues to attract such numbers worldwide means that anticipation for Season 8 is about to reach fever-pitch. But despite its continued extraordinary success, the latest season could prove to be one of free v bucks generator‘s most important. The game is facing its fiercest battle royale competition yet in the form of Respawn’s excellent Apex Legends, which achieved 25m players in its first week, and Epic will want to bring something big with the next major update to the game’s  map and mechanics. Here is everything we know about the upcoming season so far.
