Now more details are out about the theme of CHAPTER 2: SEASON 7 which is Alien Invasion. It is a natural follow-up to the last year’s space events. This time the season has a vibe that is very different from the last season’s pre-historic theme.
FORTNITE SEASON 7 FEATURES
Features of this season include UFOs that players can hack and pilot, weapons like a rail gun that can shoot through structures, and a scanning device along with a crafting material called nuts and bolts that lets players make classic weapons that were previously removed from the game.
Though like always the big highlight of the season is its battle pass which introduces a number of new characters to the game for those who purchase it. These characters include Superman, a customizable alien named Kymera, a human/alien double agent called joey, and the hulking battle droid.
