release date

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.19.3″ text_font=”||||||||” background_layout=”dark”]

Because of a Christmas Break at the Epic Games headquarters, it is confirmed in a post that season 7 is being extended by two weeks due to a break for Christmas. Epic Games also stated that Season 7 would officially end on February 28th – with expected down time, we anticipate that Season 8 will begin shortly after the Season 7 completion – this means we can expect (given past updates) that downtime will begin likely around 3am CST and will be immediately available post update, hopefully, with no queue times.

what to expect

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.19.3″ text_font=”||||||||” background_layout=”dark”]

Season 8 themes have been running around the rumor mill, some rumors tying close to a Valentines Day festival, but Valentines is on the calendar before the expected launch date for Season 8, so we only expect outfits and items for Valentines Day. Instead, the strongest theme theory is rumored to include water & dragons – yep – both. We, like many others, expect the ice/snow covered map to thaw, keeping with some of the ‘realism’ Epic Games submits to its world, where would the water go? Greasy Grove is currently under a lake of ice with visible buildings, weapons, and chests beneath the surface. With the inclusion of some items from this season; scuba-diver outfits & octopus icons…we might have had the new season theme right in front of us this whole time.

 

Many of you have seen the eggs that pulse around the map – check out Polar Peak. This could indicate some type of creature (dragons?) coming to life in Season 8. We think it’s dragons – what do you think? Apart from those, we expect, if this wet theory is correct, more items that will allow you to stay underwater longer and more vehicles to aid in traveling long distance across bodies of water. Jet-skis? Boats? Submarines?

Check out this video by CommunicGaming on Youtube to get some optics on these theories. Furthermore, check out some details on the eggs.
