Fortnite Season 8: The Battle Royale’s theme may have already been revealed

We could see the return of some familiar skins

2019 is here and with it comes fresh speculation around Fortnite Season 8.

With snow having taken over the battle royale map and a number of themed skins being added to the game that focuses around a wintery royal theme, players have been speculating as to what the theme of Season 8 will be.

Reddit user ‘LethalSnowmeme’ came up with a theory that makes a lot of sense, especially now new areas and environmental objects have been added to the game.

LethalSnowmeme believes we will see a return to the theme of Season 2, with the Medieval making a grand return.

In Season 2 we were introduced to 4 knights, the royale knight, blue squire, red knight, and black knight. The map was also covered in snow.

Skip forward to Season 7 we have seen the addition of a giant castle on the mountain by Haunted Hills, a limited time sword that was added to the game.

LethalSnowmeme finishes his theory by pointing towards three further bits of evidence:

  1. There’s a giant statue near wailing woods that’s been moving around. Back in the medieval day, moving statues had a name, it being golems.

  2. There are dragon eggs slowly being revealed from the thawing glacier. They may have been fossilized for a while, so that means that the other things may have been fossilized as well. And also, Ragnarok’s female variant was released 2 seasons ago with an ice dragon glider.

  3. The new frozen legends pack has an iced red knight along with 2 other iced skins, which helps back up my theory.

The map may be divided by the melting iceberg into different factions represented by different medieval skins.

At this point, it is merely speculation, but the arrival of flying dragon mounts to the battle royale could be an exciting development.
