According to a leak, the newest season of Fortnite may have rideable creatures. This leak comes only days before the release of Fortnite Season 8, which will follow Fortnite’s Season 7 closing event on Monday. If this feature is added to the game, it will be accompanied by a slew of additional changes as part of the seasonal update.
Since its debut in 2017, the immensely popular battle royale game has been increasingly bizarre, continually growing with new gameplay features and bizarre themes. Players were treated to a variety of science-fiction classics in Season 7, including a major alien invasion as well as properly themed weaponry, equipment, and skins.
Players may also operate UFOs, a fanciful twist on the interactive vehicles that were first introduced to the game last year. As Fortnite’s creator Epic Games continues to introduce new features, more chances for crazy and imaginative themes appear.
Rideable monsters, according to a DualShockers report, maybe the newest set of themed vehicles. This information comes from the same source that revealed the new Will Smith skin, as well as a number of other verified additions.
These monsters are said to be part of a “sideways” world inspired by the Netflix series Stranger Things. These creatures will apparently “leak” across from the alternative reality, at which point they will be able to be ridden. It’s unknown how much of the “sideways” realm will be seen beyond these possibly mountable animals at this time.
Season 8 is only a few days away, so that any Fortnite lover will be ecstatic about the prospect. While this feature has yet to be verified, several of this source’s leaks have proven to be correct, including the title of the Season 7 closing event and the addition of the Shang-Chi cosmetic to Fortnite. Even if this source has shown to be trustworthy in the past, fans should nonetheless treat any disclosure with caution.
If this leak proves to be accurate, it may have some very intriguing ramifications for Fortnite’s overall gameplay elements and dynamics. Climbing or flying mechanisms may be included in these monstrosities, allowing for a wide range of traversal choices.
Because the monsters are said to be inspired by Stranger Things, their introduction might provide Epic the opportunity to change up Fortnite’s visual style with something a bit edgier. Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait long to learn the truth behind the leak since it will be disclosed on September 13.
