Rumors suggest that with the end of season 7, the aliens in the game will no longer be present. A new clique will present itself and help make the island more suited to human life by introducing new locations and architectures. Rumors also point out that the clique might be called Zen Zonation, and members of the clique might even plant cherry blossoms around the map. Unfortunately, the rumors/leaks don’t delve into what the ulterior motive of this new clique will be.

 

Battle Pass

The battle pass will bring loads of new content, and maybe even characters of the aforementioned clique. Rumors point towards a cherry blossom skin, a unique Naruto outfit, and a Zen Zonation Goddess skin that players will be able to acquire when they reach level 100.
