Things are getting futuristic for the next season of Fortnite.
With the recent Unvaulting event that brought back the fan-favorite Drum Gun, the world of Fortnite has completely changed. Fornite’s Volcano also erupted, destroying both Tilted Towers and Retail Row.
Of course, these incidents were just teasers for the next season of Fortnite.
Thanks to a new tweet from Epic, we now know that the future — that is, Season 9 — will be unknown, though it will begin on May 9.
The teaser also revealed a new skin that looks similar to a demon from Japanese folklore, which leads us to wonder, will Epic introduce another supernatural force in Season 9 or is it just a cool new skin? We’ll have to wait and see.
The picture also showcases the letter “N” so Epic may spell out something over the next three days. The word will likely consist of four letters if Epic drops one letter a day.
Our best guess is “Neon” because Fortnite looks like it’s heading in a more cyberpunk aesthetic for this new season, with the bright neon colors and the reference to the “future” in the teaser.
The next hint will likely drop tomorrow, so stay tuned for more.
