Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8: Latest News, Release Date, Map, Trailer, Battle Pass, Theme, Skins and More

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will be released on 13th September 2021.

While Fortnite may have just moved into Chapter 2 Season 7, there is no reason why we can't look towards Season 8 already.

Epic Games have refused to rest on their laurels with the successful battle royale series, which has taken the gaming community by storm since its release back in 2017 and amassed more than 125 million players in less than a year.

In their most recent update, we witness an intergalactic takeover from a mysterious outer space army led by Doctor Slone, where players were tasked with suppressing the alien attack.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will be released on 13th September 2021.
