MAP: Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8's initial map

Apollo Island has undergone many changes over the course of Chapter 2. Season 5 saw the entire center of the island turn into a huge desert, while The Wilds took over a good portion of Season 6. Season 7 saw the destruction of The Spire and abduction of several POIs on the map, and Season 8 has Cubes running amok, corrupting large swaths of land as they move toward a final destination.

There is no telling what Chapter 2, Season 9 will bring, but fans can be sure remnants of previous Seasons will remain. A curious note is that all the Guardian Towers from Chapter 2, Season 6 are still intact. Could they play a pivitol role in future Seasons with the rumored return of The Foundation?


Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9 Trailer

It is still too early in Chapter 2, Season 8 for a Season 9 trailer to have dropped, but this section will be updated as soon as it does.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9 Battle Pass

There is currently no known information leaked or officially released by Epic concerning the Chapter 2, Season 8 Battle Pass. It is expected that Season 9 will still feature the use of Battle Stars, with players unlocking page by page of rewards, but it is unknown what will be featured.

More information to come as it becomes available.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 9 Theme

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 brought The Sideways to the island, a major force that threatens IO and their grip on the Zero Point. During the opening cinematic of Season 8, we saw the awakening of The Foundation, who was blown into the ocean following the destruction of The Spire at the beginning of Season 7.


Will fans finally get to see The Foundation and Agent Jones back in the spotlight again? It is possible this will be the case, which means other members of The Seven may get involved. It is also possible that Midas may make a reappearance since Epic has focused three months of The Crew around his Shadow operatives.

There is also a new Batman/Fortnite crossover comic coming soon, which will have a big impact on Fortnite as a whole, similar to how Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point did. With such a big storyline currently underway, it is also possible that the Sideways theme carries over into Season 9, something players have not really seen in Fortnite yet.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 Skins

While there are sure to be some exciting skin and other new cosmetic items in the Chapter 2, Season 9 Battle Pass, players can be sure that Epic will release a slew of new skins, both original and licensed over the course of the Season. While there has been no news of this as of yet, it is possible several skins from the recent survey sent out to certain individuals may show up in the game.
