Fortnite season 8 is in full swing and with it, comes additions to the game's lore. The Ice King's castle had a powerful prisoner who's now free. This prisoner has brought fire and flame to Fortnite, which means that there's new treasure as well. You'll be slugging it out against other fighters, pirates, and ninjas for this treasure. There's a new weapon called Pirate Cannon in Fortnite season 8 along with new locations and the added challenges of playing on a map where lava can damage you.
