The Fortnite Battle Pass often introduces a character later in the season. Season 7 did so with Superman, and it gives fans a reason to stay excited. However, we knew that Superman was the additional character well in advance, in Season 8, we're left in the dark.
There is a mystery character lurking around the Season 8 Battle Pass screen and we just need to know who it is!
Latest Leak - New Banner Reveal
Finally, our first leak of who the mystery character might be has surfaced, thanks to the recent 18.20 update.
It seems to be the Cube Queen Outfit, so hopefully we'll hear more official details this week.
Season 8 Mystery Character
In the Battle Pass menu, clear as day is a silhouette for the mystery character. We have no context on who this might be as Season 8 is still quite young. It appears to be a feminine figure with a kind of celestial/crystal armor.
When you click into this section of the Battle Pass, no further detail is given as to who it might be. We can see that there will be 10 unlockable items along with them, but that's it. We do, however, have a release date which appears to be counting down to Thursday, 28 October. Spooky Season.
Is the Mystery Character part of Fortnitemares?
With the dates lining up the way they do, it's very possible that the skin may be tied to an event. I would hazard a guess that it's more tied to the overall season story than something like Halloween though.
Given how the outline of the skin appears and the ongoing moving cube situation, this is where the link is. We still know so little about how the Season 8 story will play out, but this character may have a huge role to play.
We can't wait to see how things play out over the coming weeks. We'll keep you up to date with the latest news and updates on Season 8 right here.
