Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 was a great season with numerous new features and gameplay changes. Players saw aliens invading the battle royale island. The new 17.20 update is also here, bringing with it several unique skins and features.
However, the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is almost coming to an end now. According to the popular leaker HYPEX, the Battle Pass for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 will end on 12 September 2021. This means that players can expect the new season to arrive somewhere between 14-16 September. However, nothing is certain, and Epic will be dropping hints pretty soon.
A new live event in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is also in the works along with some things being added for the Halloween Celebrations.
A New Live event is coming to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7
Epic is planning on doing something big with the new 17.20 update. Several prominent Fortnite leakers and data miners are hinting towards a new "Special Event" that will be making its way into Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. Although not much is known about this event yet, leakers have shared a render. Players can check the tweet below.
As leaks suggest, the timer will appear in the near future and will likely mimic the doomsday timer design. The event might happen sometime during the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. However, Epic has not yet confirmed anything as of now. Players will need to wait and see how this fits into the season's theme.
Fortnite Update 17.20 brings Pride Sprays to the game
The new update has also added cosmetics in support of the LGBTQ+ community. Leaked game files from the 17.20 update reveal that a horde of Pride sprays are set to arrive in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. In total, there are 4 distinct Pride Sprays players can get their hands on. These are in the shape of a bomb, a heart, a unicorn, and a star.
Halloween Celebrations in Fortnite?
Although there's still a few months until Halloween, Fortnite seems to be already gearing up for this year's Fortnitemares event. HYPEX reveals that Shadow Bombs may soon be set to make a return to the game, although it is unclear whether the return will be after the 17.20 update or during Halloween.
Alongside this, as is tradition, Zombies Fiends will most likely return during the Halloween update/event. They usually spawn at locations at random and are generally dangerous as they attack unsuspecting players in swarms, which in-turn could quickly dry their health bars, sending them back to the lobby.
The leaker also mentioned that two other Halloween zombies, namely Brute and Fiend, have been previously added. It is interesting to note that the leaker believes all of this might be for Season 8.
Epic might be planning some kind of Halloween Celebration for the players in the game. HYPEX also has tweeted about the Shadow Stones and Shadow Bombs that have gotten updated for "probably" Halloween.
He also mentioned some details regarding the Shadow Stones update. Players can view the tweet below.
