Hints at Season 7 theme: Aliens?!

The latest weekly update saw the introduction of the Foreshadowing questline. It’s widely believed that this five-part Epic Quest series will provide the story link between Seasons 6 and 7.

Thanks to Twitter user @FN_Assist, we know that the latest map updates provide some heavy hints as to next season’s theme.

While most of the assets they uncovered have now been confirmed to be part of the Foreshadowing quests, the posters around Sweaty Palms remain a mystery. They show what appears to be aliens and human beings hand-in-hand.

Given the distinctly sci-fi/horror flavour of the Foreshadowing questline, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case.

Further data mining has uncovered texture files, animations, and sound effects which all point to an alien theme, too.

Finally, Twitter users @FortTory and @HYPEX have revealed that a number of Fortnite Creators have received mysterious DVD players containing footage of crop circles. While the connection to Fortnite isn’t confirmed yet, it seems likely that this is part of an ARG to promote the new season.

What will be included in the Season 7 battle pass?

Details of the new season battle pass are tightly under wraps just now. However, considering that many new introductions last time around were related to the season’s Primal theme, some sci-fi/alien skins and weapons seem like a fair bet.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more!
