Chapter 2: Season 8, also known as Season 18, is the eighteenth season of Fortnite: Battle Royale. The season started at 5:00 AM (EST) about 13 hours after Chapter 2: Season 7's Live Event Operation: Sky Fire had concluded. It started on September 13th, 2021 and will end on December 5th, 2021.

The theme is "Cubed" and it revolves around the invasion of the island by a group of Cubes and how its evil corruption spreads throughout the Island, similar to Chapter 1: Season 6 and just in time for the Halloween season.

This is also the second shortest season of Chapter 2, which has 83 days. The first being Chapter 2: Season 3 which has 70 days.

Previously, In Fortnite...

The Island and its inhabitants were faced with an alien invasion by The Last Reality. The Mothership arrives to abduct pieces of the Island and turn part of the Island into an alien biome. Loopers were also abducted by The Mothership and were used in experiments. Doctor Slone of the Imagined Order set up the Mothership Countermeasure Device in Corny Complex to end the invasion.

How Did It Start?

After the Countermeasure Device was activated, the Mothership blew in to pieces and, along with the Cubes, crashed on to the island causing destruction. The player is then hit by a crashing Abductor and passes out. After downtime, the Cubes were spread out all over the island and summoned monsters. The new war between the islanders and the Cubes had begun.

In the story trailer, Headhunter, Triggerfish, J.B. Chimpanski, Bracer, and Shadow Ops were walking close to a Cube which awoke and summoned Sideways Monsters to attack the group. The Foundation, which was rifted to the ocean in the previous season, is still underwater. The Queen Cube says "you should have known we'd return... you thought you saved your little reality.. all you did, was prepare it.. for us, so go on and gather what's left of your 'army' .. ready your defenses.. and now when we are done.. only Nothing will remain."

Battle Pass

The Battle Pass is purchasable for V-Bucks - Icon - Fortnite.png 950 V-Bucks, or if you own the Fortnite Crew, you will have it on season launch.
