Interestingly, there’s a giant alien marking/crop circle that is currently visible in Colossal Crops. This marking contains 6 unique symbols, and as of now, there’s no information on what they denote.

However, many players have noticed that this alien marking, when put above the map, perfectly aligns with The Spire and all the surrounding towers. This can certainly be a coincidence, but considering that the storyline develops every season, it won’t be a surprise if the Spire towers and the UFOs have some mysterious connection.

There’s a possibility that the UFOs will only land on the locations of The Spire towers. Another alien marking will soon appear in the Steel Farm, and it might reveal more information about the upcoming alien invasion.

As per data miners, Farmer Steel will also request the players to put sign posts around the crop circle. These tasks will be a part of the upcoming in-game quests.

SypherPK and other creators have received mysterious packages from Epic Games

Epic Games leaves no stone unturned to hype future events and seasons in Fortnite. Chapter 2 Season 7 is no exception, as many prominent Fortnite creators recently received packages from the developers regarding it.

These packages contained DVD players, and every creator got a different video to inspect. For instance, SypherPK’s DVD showcased a deserted area with a symbol from the crop circle.

Things get even more interesting when we closely look at the current Fortnite map. The symbol that SypherPK discovered from his DVD is a replica of the logo of The Spire towers. Even the Zero Point, that is the source of all energy and reality, has a similar logo.

YouTuber Communic Gaming talked about the symbol in a recent video.

It is safe to assume that the Zero Point, The Spire towers, The Spire guardians, and the UFOs have some hidden connection. Hence, Chapter 2 Season 7 should finally reveal the motive of the Spire guardians, and facilitate the ultimate showdown between the Seven, the Imagined Order, and Agent Jonesy.
