For everyone waiting for Fortnite Season 8 to start, there’s been plenty of interesting developments happen over the past day.
Epic Games just finished their Season 7 event, involving earthquakes and the falling apart of The Wailing Woods.
It looks like a volcano is being primed for eruption over the current wood location, meaning big changes are afoot.
And all of these massive Fortnite map updates will be heralded in the upcoming Fortnite Season 8 trailer.
This new video will provide all the important information for Season 8, including the new theme, as well as what is changing on the map and what the new storyline will be.
It should also be noted that there is a lot of interest in the start of Season 8, due to Epic Games making it possible to grab a free Battle Pass.
So when is the official Fortnite Season 8 trailer set to drop and how can you watch it?
The good news is that Epic Games always makes it easy to tune and find out the latest info on Fortnite.
The new trailer will be shared both on the official website and on the game’s various social media feeds.
Fans will be able to head over to the official Reddit page or to Twitter to find a link to the video.
The Fortnite Season 8 trailer will be hosted on YouTube, meaning everyone should be able to access it.
And when it comes to a start time for the new trailer, we have some news in that area too.
Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite server downtime is planned tomorrow so that they can release a new update.
This scheduled maintenance is expected to last at least an hour and will mean the game will be offline.
This process will begin at 9am, GMT, on PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile.
And it’s expected that Epic Games will release the official patch notes, Battle Pass news and Fortnite Season Trailer soon after it begins.
Judging by how past seasons have operated, Fortnite fans can expect the official trailer to drop between 9am and 10am tomorrow, February 28.
Here’s the latest from Epic Games, who confirmed: “Ahoy, mateys! Season 8 approaches and X marks the spot!
“Downtime begins tomorrow, February 28 at 4 AM ET (0900 UTC). Please note that the patch size will be larger than normal updates.”
There have been various “leaked” Fortnite Season 8 trailers popping over the past week but these all look to have been faked.
The only thing solid we have had to go on is the special teaser images released by Epic this week.
These all suggest that a tropical pirate theme is being used during Fortnite Season 8. So expect to see a few pirate ships and treasure maps popping up when the new trailer goes live later this week.
