Fortnite season 8 leaks were bound to happen
Fortnite season 8 leaks were bound to happen, it was only a matter of which platform would by the guilty party. Would it be PlayStation? Or Apple’s app store like in season 7? Maybe Epic would let it slip on social media too early?
Nope, it’s Xbox, which has been responsible for a few leaks like this in the past, and tonight they have leaked what appear to be three Fortnite season 8 battle pass skins judging by dozens of screenshots players have taken of a very brief window in which the image appeared in the Xbox store.
There was some question about whether or not these were legitimate for a little while, but I’ve seen a ton of different captures of these so far, too many to be a coordinated fake, and just looking at them, you can tell. I may eat my words in about 10 hours or so, but to me, they seem legitimate.
There are three skins featured here, a red, Snake-Eyes type ninja. A black woman adorned in gold. And a guy with a gold cat mask, echoing the teaser we saw yesterday in the season 8 preview image.
The last time we saw a leak like this, the tier 100 skin was front and center (Ice King) and the Tier 1 skin was to the left (Lynx). This time, my money is on the woman being Tier 1 and the cat man being Tier 100, obviously with unlockable styles to come, as that’s now standard. However we have yet to see a female Tier 100 skin, so perhaps it could be her, and her final form is…a lot more involved than what we’re seeing here.
Epic has given out a variety of hints that this season will bring with it a pirate theme in some capacity, though none of these look especially pirate-like to me. Maybe the woman with her gold tattoos and jewelry, but certainly a modern spin on the concept, if so fortnite v bucks generator .
My first thought was that these look like rejected Tekken fighters, and I’m not super enamored with them right off the bat. But I do want to see their unlockable styles before fully making that kind of judgement call, as Lynx was bad until she became catwoman after enough unlocks. I’m curious to see what these might become.
There are usually six skins in the battle pass, so this is only half of them. I am almost positive we are indeed seeing tier 1 and 100 here, as that’s almost always how these images work, but I suppose I could be wrong and perhaps at least one of those is absent. Again, we’ll find out in just a few hours, and perhaps you aren’t even reading this post until after the new update has gone live.
