Fortnite Season 7 has Arrived
Fortnite Season 6 gave us a primal theme provided for lots of fun hunting wild animals, or being hunted by the wild animals of the island. This led to Fortnite battle island turning into a feral battlefield. Well, as for season 7, there is a lot of things in store for the gamers.
This season 7 happens to feature some sort of alien invasion that would soon be underway in Fortnite. Players have already been abducted by several UFOs and the huge beams of light then dropped in an entirely new location on the island. Well, Fortnite season 7 has arrived, and everything that you need to know concerning season 7 including the battle pass details, event time, teasers, and much more.

Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass
The entire battle Pass Reward system has been switched entirely for season 7, and so instead of just getting some set of rewards for each of the tier of the battle pass that you get to, you would get a Five Battle Stars for each of the tiers that you get to spend on whatever reward that you want.
Some progress element still needs you to get to the higher rewards that you want. There is still an element of progress needed to get to the higher level unlocks though, in other to gain access to each of the page rewards, you have to get to a particular battle pass tier or have spent a particular amount of battle stars available on the past page.
With the teaser that has been released already, we would be seeing superman, Rick, and Morty, and other franchises might be skins or other cosmetics.
Fortnite Aliens and UFOs
The aliens are already on the island, and they are here to stay. The aliens can be found patrolling the island locations around the map, in the same way as the Henchmen or the IO Guard in the past Fortnite seasons.
The aliens also brought parasites that have been spotted on the island. Thearasites would attach themselves to players’ heads and slowly reduce their HP. The only way to get them out is to jump into water or have a teammate or foe shoot of the parasite.
You might also notice some places on the map that is flickering purple on the map, and this is where you would find Fortnite UFOs, an entirely new type of vehicle that has some amazing functions.
You might also be required to shoot down some UFO to take control, and once you are piloting the ship, you can ascend and descent while hovering, boost forward for a much brief speed increase, and shoot out an Energy Cannon Weapon, although this does a lot more damage to structures than enemies. From the UFO, you can also shoot out a tractor beam to lift any object that is under you in the air. And this includes scenery, vehicles, and even other players.
