Fortnite Season 8 is now live and it brings a volcano and a new Pirate themed area

Fortnite Season 8 is now upon us. The brand new season means that the Ice King is out and pirates are in!

Fortnite Season 8 also means a new Battle Pass, new costumes, a brand-new area and a freaking massive volcano!

Speaking of the new Battle Pass, if you completed the 13 free Overtime Challenges in Season 7 you will have access to the new Battle Pass for free. Here’s what Epic has to say about Season 8.

Freed from the Ice King’s castle, the now-powerful Prisoner has brought fire and flame to Fortnite and its islands. Pirates, Ninjas and a ship load of new fighters will tussle over treasure, battle with Pirate Cannons and uncover legendary loot.

For those daring enough to explore, the new Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps locations are just a jump away with the help of Volcanic Vents. There are tons of new areas to explore and secrets to uncover. This season, X marks the spot!

A massive volcano has erupted in the place of Wailing Woods and has changed the whole northeast corner of the island. The Block has also been moved to the North West corner.

Along with these changes, Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps have appeared adding to the Pirate theme of Season 8. A new feature coming to Battle Royale in Season 8 is Party Assist. Before matches, you’re able to pick Daily or Weekly challenges and ask your friends for help with them.
