Season 7 will conclude at 1am PT on February 28 and downtime for the 8.00 patch will begin immediately after. Patch notes detailing any new weapons, map changes, or gameplay alterations will be released by Epic as soon as downtime begins.
Downtime between updates typically lasts about an hour, but Epic has confirmed this is a larger patch and downtime will take longer.
Any replays saved before the update will be rendered useless after downtime concludes. Unlockable styles for outfits from the Season 7 Battle Pass can still be unlocked during Season 8 as long as the base skins were unlocked prior to the new season.
Teasers hinting at the theme of Season 8 were released throughout the last week. The first image showed a pirate hook, the second featured a snake, the third a beast, and the final teaser showed a volcano. Putting all four teaser images together formed a giant skull leading fans to believe Season 8 will revolve around pirates.
