There has been loads of leaks over the last few days, as always, but this is the first official teaser of what's to come.

First Official Fortnite Season 8 Teaser

You can check out the first official teaser below, straight from the Fortnite Twitter.


It shows an image of a flying saucer and is accompanied by some radio chatter, presumably involving Maven and IO agents. You can read what they're saying in the video too.

It'll certainly play into the upcoming live event.


Operation Sky Fire Event Details

We already know what to expect from the Operation Sky Fire, which is due to kick off at 4pm ET/9pm BST on September 12.

As the official description reads: "With the Mothership’s sights set on the Imagined Order’s secret base at Corny Complex, Slone has hatched a plan to end the Invasion once and for all. You’ve answered her calls, worked as an undercover agent for the IO - now it’s time to infiltrate The Last Reality and put a stop to the Alien’s occupation. It’s time to commence: Operation: Sky Fire."

Make sure you're ready for when it kicks off.
