Zombies to return to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 8

Recent leaks have suggested that Epic will continue with the alien invasion theme this season. However, they will introduce the Fortnitemares Halloween theme next season. Given that Chapter 2 Season 7 is ending on September 12th, this lines up perfectly with the spooky season.

The popular Fortnite data-miner also gave us a glimpse of the types of zombies we can expect to see next season. These include the Brute [Basic, Major, Mega, Exploding] and Fiend [Basic, Major, Ranged, Poison]. In addition to this, it is also speculated that Epic will introduce healing NPCs into the game.

Starting Chapter 2 Season 8, it is believed that there will be healing NPCs around the map who will require you to perform emotes in exchange for their healing services. These NPCs are said to heal players using a chug jug. Additionally, each NPC will hold up to 20 chug jugs.
