After we all managed to survive and defeat the alien invasion of the previous season, Fortnite season 8 is finally here. But there is no time to rest. Season 8 introduced a lot of new battle pass skins, new game mechanics, and perhaps most importantly, Kevin’s Cube.
If you just recently converted to Fortnite church, then Kevin the Cube is a huge purple cube, I can only describe it as a fashionable time magic ability. In fact, it is just an interesting symbol with no practical use, such as the space needle.
There are a lot of details to discuss, so let’s prepare for Fortnite Season 8 as thoroughly as possible.
Fortnite Season 8 Story Trailer: The Return of Kevin the Cube
As we mentioned above, Kevin the Cube has returned to Fortnite. However, he brought some new friends, and they didn’t seem to be satisfied with us. The purple cube that powered the alien mothership in Season 7 has now fallen to Earth, and the resulting chaos of time has opened a rift in a dimension called “The Sideways.”
Functionally, these cube cracks are new places where you can fight with enemy NPCs to collect loot.
In the season 8 battle pass trailer, we also heard a monologue by a character called the queen. She seems to be dissatisfied with us and intends to destroy our dimension. You can see her outline on the battle pass page. It seems that she will appear later, just like Superman in season 7.
This is a slightly adjusted image of the “mysterious character” (probably the queen) that we can currently see in the Battle Pass tab! ! 😳We can actually already see some other details of her face and skin! (Picture from @FN_Assist) pic.twitter.com/xl26BYiuCSSeptember 13, 2021
Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass
The Battle Pass for Season 8 includes another 100 tiers of rewards, which can be collected through upgrades. You will start with Charlotte, a casual Gothic woman. Although it looks quite ordinary, her second echelon is equipped with a paint samurai sword.
Other battle pass skins include
-Charlotte’s Enchanted Spirit suit, let her wear a kimono-style skirt.
-Kor, a woman with the temperament of Ada Wong and a red trench coat.
-Fabio Sparklemane, the notorious unicorn spoof Fabio Romance Novel CoverGiven his completely different face, he can easily become the most unique character visually this season.
-JB Chimpanski, a monkey astronaut holding a lamb chop. I really want to mash some beer with this primate.
-Torin, a young woman dressed in a cloak, exuding superhero temperament. Strangely, her built-in expression turned her face into a creepy alien skeleton, so I’m not sure if she is on our side.
-Finally, we have Marvel’s carnage. Not to be confused with anti-hero venom, slaughter is another symbiotic creature that works through the serial killer Cletus Kasady. Epic will never let the marketing crossover be wasted, Venom: Let the Holocaust be shown in theaters soon.
Fortnite Season 8: Sideways treasure chests and weapons
Epic is always eager to add some new game mechanics in each season, and Season 8 is no exception. This time, we have Sideways loot boxes and weapons.
As shown in the following ShiinaBR tweet, there are Sidways rifles, Sidways Minigun and Sideways Lightblade.

Fortnite season 8 map changes
Fortnite Season 8 is definitely one of the most dramatic map changes we have seen in the past few seasons. If it were not for the wreckage of an alien mothership, it would be the purple cubes dotted in the landscape. Distributed around the map are several wreckage locations pulsating with cube energy. There are strange energy tunnels in these areas, you can fly through to quickly escape or pinch your opponent from the side.
Slurpy Swamp has also been renamed to Sludgy Swamp.
Fortnite Season 8: Punch Cards Return
Punch cards are back and can help players gain extra experience points more easily. This is basically a different way of organizing daily and weekly rotation challenges, so if you see a punch card that looks feasible, please complete it without hesitation before it disappears.
More creative punch card missions will allow you to interact with NPCs and start their mission line. These are most likely tasks where you need to search for unique objects or complete targets beyond “causing X damage.”
Fortnite Season 8: Paint-a-Toona Fish
Like the Kymera customizable skins from last season, Season 8 will let you collect paint cans to customize your own cartoon version of Fortnite fish sticks.
