'Fortnite' releases Season 8 trailers for story and Battle Pass

Fortnite Season 8 is Live With All Sorts of Pirate-Themed Items and More

Fortnite Season 8 Heats the World up With Volcanoes, Pirates, and Ninjas

Fortnite's pirate-themed Season 8 rolled out on Thursday, and the latest iteration of the popular game includes some big changes to gameplay and two new locations to explore. As you're no doubt well aware, it can be annoying to try to play a game when you can't talk to the people you're trying to coordinate with.

Two new locations have also emerged from an in-game volcanic eruption, Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps. The start of a new season also means you should say goodbye to vaulted items like the and X-4 Stormwing plane, but luckily the new arrival of hot air vents make for an acceptable transportation substitute. Because of the lava.

The new Battle Pass is prized at 950 V-bucks, just like its predecessor.
