“‘X’ Marks the Spot / Treasure abound / Loot that has been lost / Can always be found.” It’s pirates. Season 8 of Fortnite is gonna be all about pirates. I mean, sounds good to me. We’ve yet to get a good pirate game, so Fortnite might as well give it a whirl. It can’t be worse than goddamn Atlas. I’m honestly intrigued to see what Fortnite is gonna do with pirates; that is, if it indeed turns out that we’re reading into the tweet correctly. This is still conjecture, for the most part. I wonder if they’re gonna add ships to the proceedings, maybe create bodies of water that weren’t there before. It could be interesting.

What’s also eye-catching about the tweet is the whole “‘X’ marks the spot” and “Treasure abound” thing. I’m questioning if that’s a hint to some kind of treasure hunt event that will kick off the season. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Not long now.
