Fortnite Season 7: Alien Theme

The primal biome in Season 6 had its charm, but all good things come to an end eventually.

Epic Games have come up with a new theme to explore in Season 7, and it's going to be based on outer space. Aliens and UFOs might appear in the Fortnite map, as a part of the natural ecosystem.

UFOs have already started randomly abducting players from the map. This might hint at a new in-game dynamic that the publishers would put in place for Season 7. Perhaps, UFOs are going to replace Spire NPCs and POIs all around the map.

Alien-like crop circles at Colossal Crops are a foreshadowing for all the upcoming changes. Players can also expect some old fan-favorite POIs to come back.

The working theory is that the Spire itself will disintegrate and this will give birth to a new map in Season 7. This will not only expose the Zero Point but also reveal more details about the Foundation.

Players can expect POIs like Boney Burbs, Colossal Crops, and all the Guardian Towers will yield their position to new locations.

Superman, Star Trek, and all things "alien"

Since the general theme will follow Aliens, fans can expect to find some of them hiding in plain sight. A pair of black spectacles were leaked a while ago by Fortnite data miners. All the theories and speculations point towards the item belonging to Earth's favorite alien, Superman.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to fans as the Fortnite Batman Zero Point will join the narrative with Season 7. The man of steel isn't the only one who might join the island. Leaks and rumors suggest that Wonder Woman, Robin, Nightwing, and Cyborg are on their way too, and might make an appearance in Season 7.

Speaking of appearances, fans might get to see the next big Fortnite collaboration with Star Trek. Popular data miner ShiinaBR revealed that recently Epic Games divulged some information on Discord. A riddle was given for fans to piece together. Although most have failed at deciphering this mysterious image.

Our best guess is that its significance will come to light during the end season event in Season 6. The best fans can do now is wait patiently as the downtime for Fortnite Season 7 will commence soon.
