Fortnite's map has changed a little bit following the Sky Fire Event and Season 8

Operation Sky Fire was a success - more or less - and Fornite Season 8 has started with a new map - more or less. There are Funding Stations appearing near named POIs and NPC locations have changed, however... What about Fortnite Island and the Season 8 map itself? What does it actually look like nowadays? Here's everything you need to know.

NEW MAP - Season 8 isn't too different, really...

Fortnite's new Season 8 map isn't actually all that different to what Season 7 looked like - at least at the end of the season. The Alien Mothership has been destroyed and, as you can see below, there are a few Mothership Crash Sites that have appeared on the map:

The Mothership Crash Sites can be found at the following locations:

  • Between Coral Castle and Pleasant Park;
  • South of Believer Beach;
  • Between Holly Hedges and Weeping Woods;
  • West of Sludgy Swamp;
  • Between Lazy Lake and Misty Meadows;
  • South of Dirty Docks;
  • Between Corny Crops and Dirty Docks;

From what we can tell so far, these Mothership Crash Sites are also going to be hotspots for Cube activity. Epic Games has shared the following via PlayStation:

The Cubes have gathered themselves around the wreckage of the Mothership. Shockingly, some of the Mothership’s technologies still work. In fact, its anti-grav tunnels are capable of transporting groups around in loops.
Some of the Cube’s dark powers can be used in our favor. Anyone who consumes a Shadow Stone scattered amidst the rubble will temporarily become a shadow-like apparition, making it possible to move more secretly.

Anti-Grav tunnels should transport you from one Mothership Crash Site to the next and it looks like Shadow Stone is going to be available as a pick-up from these locations. We can imagine there's more to come from these locations as the Cubes spread, so keep an eye on them going forwards.
