One of Fortnite's continual draws is not the gameplay but the shared meta-narrative, with dramatic events occurring across all play instances at the end of each season. The approach to Season 8 is no different. Players have been reporting shaking and the sound of earthquakes for several weeks now, and as of this morning there is now visible evidence that the world is falling apart. Here's some footage courtesy of FortniteBR, a Fortnite news service which also hosts a countdown clock to the next earthquake.
Don't forget that participation in the ongoing Valentine's Day event can net you a free Season 8 Battle Pass, if you want to enter this dangerous new phase of the game fully kitted out with appropriate cosmetics. The challenges that you need to complete to get that free Pass end on February 27th, leading many to predict that Season 8 will kick off for real on February 28th.
