Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 has finally arrived and it comes with a whole host of changes. There have been plenty of new items, changes and additions revealed since the new season officially arrived, and players are continuing to discover new features as they go. Here's everything new that has arrived in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
New features for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 battle pass
The new battle pass debuted and it has officially titled this season "Fortnite Cubed". As the name suggests, 'The Cube' is back and wreaking more havoc than ever before. The new skins in Fortnite's latest battle pass are:
- Toona Fish - new customizable skin
- Charlotte - has two variants
- Kor - has three variants
- Fabio Sparklemane - has two variants
- J.B. Chimpanski - has three variants
- Torin - has two variants
- Carnage - has one variant
Players can begin leveling up, unlocking battle stars and purchasing items. The battle stars mechanic from Chapter 2 Season 7 is one of the few game mechanics that stayed over to Chapter 2 Season 8.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 map
The new map has not undergone the drastic changes that many thought were coming. Corny Complex is now Corny Crops and both Sludgy Swamp and Coral Castle remain after being abducted. There are some new crash sites and a new dimension, the Sideways (a Stranger Things collaboration) is present, but the changes are relatively small. Even Misty Meadows is going to stick around for this season.
All Chapter 2 Season 7 POIs have returned, though there are some new locations on the map. After all the leaks and rumors, this is a relatively insignificant change to the map.
