LATEST - Season 7 Is Finally Here

Epic Games' next major update for Fortnite has finally released. There's been an update to Fortnite Island, The Foundation has been dropped into the water, and it looks like there's going to be a few more UFOs going forwards.

Still, the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass offers 100 Tiers of content, as per the standard, and there's a new batch of weapons to replace the now-extinct Primal Season weapons. Oh, and as you might imagine there are quite a few new skins to be looked at.

If you missed the Season 7 Story Trailer, we also have that below:

Mysterious Puzzle Confounds Players Ahead of Fortnite Season 7's Launch

A mysterious puzzle has been bamboozling Fortnite players ahead of the launch of Fortnite Season 7, and the community is working overtime to discover just exactly what it all could mean!

Fortnite leaker HYPEX has been chronicling the saga over on Twitter, and over the last day or so, both HYPEX and the community have begun to make decent headway.

The entire thread is pretty wild and well worth checking out even if you aren't a trained cryptoanalyst. While we don't have all the answers yet, we will be eagerly awaiting to see what this could all be leading towards!

When Will Downtime Begin?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is nearly upon us, with the new season beginning on Tuesday, June 8th.

The 17.00 update will bring about the start of the new alien-themed season and based on previous updates downtime should begin between 2-4 am EST/7-9 am BST.

Epic Games will confirm the official time on the evening of Monday, June 7th.

Season 7 Teasers on Social Media

As of today, the first official teasers for Fortnite Season 7 have popped up on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and more.

It doesn't show a whole lot about what to expect, but it continues the 'They're Coming" teases and confirms the start date as June 8.

We're probably get an official teaser trailer from Epic Games soon, and we'll let you know as soon as it drops.

UFO Abductions & Teases

Epic Games has been teasing Fortnite Season 7 for quite a few weeks now. As always, Donald Mustard and the Fortnite team are more than a step ahead of the rest of us.

At long last, a week before release, we're starting to see something a bit more substantial. There have been some teasers leading up to this, though. Fortnite Content Creators and several members of the media received strange cards with "They're Coming" as the only legible text. Now... We're getting UFO Abductions.

We're not sure if HYPEX is right in claiming that this is the first person to clip a UFO Abduction in Fortnite, but it's certainly a good clip to showcase what's going on.

You can't even really see the UFO in the video, but rather an ominous beam of light... It's all very unusual and we can't wait to find out more.

Possible New Weapons

As you can see from the image at the very top of this page, there's a chance that we get an alien laser weapon of some kind as part of the Season 7 update.

How exactly it'll work, how exactly we'll get it, or how rare it'll be, we don't know quite yet, but the full weapons roster will be released shortly before the update.

Season 7 Battle Pass Details

It's a little early to be talking about the specifics of the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass in terms of the content it will include, but we can talk about how much it'll cost and the basics.

Every season, the Battle Pass will set you back 950 V-Bucks, which can be bought from bundles of 1,000 upwards. There's going to be at least 100 Tiers of rewards to unlock including Loading Screens, Weapon Wraps, Icons, Emotes and a few Skins too!

If you're wanting a head start, you can get the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 V-Bucks. This will give you the Battle Pass and the first 25 Tiers. You can earn V-Bucks through the current Battle Pass, but if not this will set you back around $19.99 / £15.99.
