Season 8 could host the next major live event for Fortnite

Popular Fortnite streamer, SypherPK got hold of some interesting leaks. The 25-year-old streamer stated that the climax of Season 7 could reveal a range of interesting things. Fans can expect to see an all-out battle breaking out with the queen of aliens, as Island inhabitants fight back. The entire battle is going to lead to the complete destruction of Coral Castle, which will be replaced with something else.

Season 7 is going to have an end-game event, which makes the next season a better choice to bring back in-game concerts. In 2020, Fortnite managed to congregate millions of players during the Astronomical concert and Fight Galactus event. It seems like Season 8 will serve as the main stage for the return of concerts and Ariana Grande is the front runner to host her own show.

It is also being stated that the American singer will receive a brand new skin of her own. This upcoming event will serve as a great opportunity to host an even better event in 2021. The leaks also pointed at the addition of everyone’s favorite Anime character, Naruto, in Season 8 and it could kick-start the collaboration with anime characters.

It seems like the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad could also reveal a range of new skin bundles. Thus far, the studio has added skins for Batman, Superman, Aquaman, and Flash. This leaves room for other Justice League characters to be rolled out soon.
