Keeping up with the Joneseys: weekly Fortnite recap

Another big week of Fortnite news with the leadup to the new season, including a some major map changes, a new Battle Pass, and a Season-ending event.

Here's everything you missed from this past week in Fortnite.

Epic Games

Season 8 is here!

Obviously, the biggest news of the week is the release of Fortnite Season 8: Cubed.

We'll have Jaxon's full thoughts on the new map after a full day of playing it, but the initial impression is: so far, so good.

The major POIs have been relatively unchanged, but Epic added a ton of new elements to the map.

I expect to see some more changes over the course of the season, but the current meta is pretty fun.

New Battle Pass

A new season means a new Battle Pass to explore.

We got a new version of Fishstick, a Carnage crossover at level 100, and some brand new characters introduced.

You can take a look at the full Season 8 Battle Pass in the video below.

Operation: Sky Fire event

The event that concluded Season 7 was one of the best we've seen in several seasons. I'm not ready to give it the "best ever" tag, but it hit several notes that had fans excited.

Out of all of the things we saw, the biggest reveal has to be that there are multiple Kevin cubes and that they originated from the invading aliens.

We'll do a full event ranking soon, but this one is undoubtedly in the top five.
