Fortnite’s eighth season appears to be pirate themed

Seaman Staines and Roger the Cabin Boy unconfirmed

We are just a few short days away from the eighth season of Fortnite: Battle Royale with Epic Games dropping a fairly large hint that the theme will be pirates.

This seems to suggest some sort of treasure hunt, perhaps for weapons or gear that was available previously for a limited time. Will a good sea shanty and well tacked mainbrace be enough to stop players leaving the game and heading to Apex Legends? Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, during a Q&A session on Reddit the developers were asked if the game would ever get a respawn function. “We’ve been considering this mechanic for a while” said Epic, “Want to make sure we give it the time it needs and fully understand its impact on the game as a whole.”
