The epic finale of Fortnite Season 7 saw the destruction of invading aliens ‘The Last Reality.’ Dr. Slone and The Imagined Order’s plan worked like clockwork and the invasion collapsed on its head. The Mothership was destroyed with the aid of loopers and carefully placed bombs in various points of interest.

However, things did not end on a positive note, as Dr. Slone betrayed the island loopers with the appearance of Kevin the cube and his clan. This sets the center stage for a much darker storyline in Season 8. And to counteract it, Epic Games has rolled out light-hearted challenges in the upcoming week.
