Season 8 of "Fortnite Battle Royale" could be the biggest season so far. Epic Games has announced some huge changes that will be released with the eighth season and players can't wait for it to start. The upcoming season is scheduled to begin on February 28, and it will be interesting to see how the playerbase will be affected by it. Considering that "Fortnite" has a serious competitor in "Apex Legends," its developer will have to do a great job to keep the playerbase.

Speaking of "Apex Legends," this popular video game has the respawn mechanic, which is something that is unique.

Most battle royale games only give one life to all players and allow reviving in duos, squads, and other big-team modes. However, "Apex Legends" players are able to respawn even after dying. According to an Epic Games developer, this is something that will be added to "Fortnite Battle Royale," possibly in the next season.

Fortnite to get a game changer

"Fortnite Battle Royale" has been getting weekly updates for over a year. Its creator has worked very hard to keep the game updated with new content, which is something that players both love and hate.

While constant updates are a great thing, some players are simply tired of the constantly-changing meta and new items that enter the game.

Epic Games has already announced some big changes for the next season, as well as the plans for future updates. One of the things that the game developer has been considering for a while is the respawn mechanic, and according to the Reddit AMA post, players will get more updates on this during Season 8. This means that "Fortnite Battle Royale" could get the mechanic during the upcoming season, but it is very likely that Epic Games will use this season to run respawn tests with different limited-time game modes.

"We’ve been considering this mechanic for a while and have been exploring it. Want to make sure we give it the time it needs and fully understand its impact on the game as a whole. Look for further updates during Season 8," is what RZElive of Epic Games responded to the question about respawning in the PvP mode of "Fortnite."

Season 8 changes

Epic Games will remove the X-4 Stormwing from the game in Season 8. Additionally, console players will get more options for graphical settings and will be able to turn Motion Blur off.

Once again, we can expect some huge map changes, although the developer hasn't revealed anything about this year.

There have been two Season 8 teasers so far, hinting at the pirate theme and snakes. The season starts in just two days, so make sure you are ready on Thursday!
