Just like winter has come and gone, so has Fortnite’s Season 7. That, however, is no reason to be alarmed as this only means that a new season kicks off with more stuff to do and things to unlock. Here’s everything you need to know about what’s new in Fortnite Season 8.
What’s New in Fortnite Season 8
Fortnite Season 8 is now live and, just like previous seasons, it brings about a handful of map changes. If Season 7 saw an iceberg colliding with the map, Season 8 kicks off with a volcanic eruption that’s equally dramatic.
As expected from any respectable volcanic eruption, Fortnite Season 8 adds lava to its map. Step in it and you’ll receive 1 damage per touch, as well as bounce off its surface. Volcanic Vents have also appeared, their gusts of hot air ready to boost both players and vehicles into the sky.
There are also two new locations to explore, loot and fight in. Look for Sunny Steps and Lazy Lagoon on the map.
Finally, you’ll also find Pirate Camps littered around the map that have taken over existing buildings. They’re large wooden structures in which you’ll find campfires, as well as the new Pirate Cannons.
