Fortnite Season 8's Theme is becoming more and more clear

We are just a day away from Fortnite Season 8 but we're still unclear on what exactly the theme will be. Fortunately, recent leaks and comments from someone high up in the Epic food chain gives us a decent hint at what's next.

You can be sure that Season 8 will bring us relentless content. We've been spoilt during Season 7 and hopefully, this doesn't change moving forward.

What theme will Fortnite Season 8 follow? Let's check out what we already know...

This could further solidify its involvment in the Season 8 story moving forward. We'll know for sure in just a few days time!

Possible hints towards 'The Last Reality' Theme

Donald Mustard, COO of Epic, met with a fan recently and teased that we could be learning more about Kevin the Cube and The Foundation very soon.

When questoned by the fan about teases for next season, all Mustard had to say was 'The Last Reality'. What this means is unclear, but it seems we're heading far away from the possible Ancient Egypt theme that was initiaally rumoured.

Operation Sky Fire announced

We are one step closer to learning more about the Theme for Fortnite Season 8. Operation Sky Fire signals the end of Season 7 and will take place on Sunday, 12 September, 2 days before Season 8 begins.

We can't wait to take part in what will be an incredible event. Hopefully, by the time it's all said and done, we'll have an idea of what the Season 8 Theme is.

What Themed skins could be coming?

If we are in fact heading to ancient Egypt in Fortnite Season 8, we have some ideas for Battle Pass skins additions. Imagine this, Rick O'Connell from 'The Mummy' film series.

With Brendan Fraser's career resurgence well underway, a Fortnite skin can't be too far away!

Fortnite Season 8 Themes possible leaked

Fortnite leaker @HYPEX has been up to their old tricks and possibly revealed what theme Season 8 will follow. We could be looking at an Ancient Egypt theme based on the skin and POI they have identified.

A mummy skin and pyramid POI were found in the game files and could be used for Season 8. This would be quite the departure from the futuristic alien battle we're currently engaged in.

Will The Cube play a role in Season 8?

We are expecting The Cube to return soon as it appeared in a flash-forward during the Rift Tour. The Cube may play a role in the Fortnite Season 8 Theme as the cause for how we go from battling aliens to the dry and dusty deserts of ancient Egypt.

Nothing more has developed since the initial vision of The Cube so we are still in the dark as to when it will reappear. With just a few weeks left in Fortnite Season 7, it's hard to imagine it playing a major role too soon.

When does Fortnite Season 8 start?

We should have a much better idea of what the Season 8 Theme will be when it begins on 14 September. This falls on a Tuesday with is Fortnite's usual update day. You can expect some major downtime on that morning.

Hopefully, our magic leakers will be able to reveal more prior to the event going live. If not, Fortnite will surely leave us some hints and tips in-game to keep anticipation high.
