X Marks the Spot
— Season 8

Season 8 of Fortnite: Battle Royale started on February 28th, 2019, and ended on May 8th, 2019.

The theme revolves mainly on Adventure and Pirates. You can find the full list of cosmetics released this season here.

The Season 8 Storyline

The continuing storyline that dates back to Season 3 continues, with Wailing Woods exploding and being replaced with a volcano which was summoned by The Prisoner. Pirates also find the island, raid and destroy and take over Lazy Links, replacing it with Lazy Lagoon, and Sunny Steps. Wind holes and lava (presumably connected underground to the Volcano, the source) begin to appear around the North-Eastern area of the island. The unlucky building at Tilted Towers is repaired (again). Later on in the season, the vikings take over Snobby Shores and the government arrives in helicopters to dig up Loot Lake. The main Season 5/6 villain known as Kevin the Cube’s remains are destroyed. A bunker is then revealed. Dig sites appear across the map (most prominently the neglected Dusty Divot). Eventually, all these dig sites are revealed to be filled with lava, confirming the instability of the island, due to the volcano.

The Unvaulting Event

Near the end of the season, the Loot Lake bunker opens up, revealing The Vault and The Zero Point to be down there. Players vote on a weapon to be unvaulted and the Drum Gun is chosen, to some delight and dismay. After returning to the map, The Volcano erupts and volcanic rocks strike and destroy the eastern part of Retail Row, Tilted Towers (surprisingly, everything but the ever-so unlucky building), as well as cracking the ice beneath Polar Peak.

How did it End?

During the eruption, Jonesy and Peely ran to escape and ended up in a bunker with a dance floor, an exercise center, an arcade, and... a refrigerator with nothing but an empty can. A lot of time passed before someone finally opened up the bunker, and that person being the robot Sentinel. At the time it opened, Jonesy got a long beard, and Peely turned into a smoothie. As the now named Bunker Jonesy exits the bunker, he sees Tilted Towers in a futuristic form, named Neo Tilted. Season 9 began at this point.
