Things are starting to heat up in the world of Fortnite, as Epic Games have begun teasing something extra-terrestrial for Season 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2.

It all began when Fortnite content creators started receiving some strange DVDs with footage of crop circles inside. One of the many content creators to receive this strange package was InTheLittleWood.

Following on from these strange packages, players found themselves being abducted in Fortnite after UFOs began appearing around the island. Not only this, but eagle-eyed players also noticed that there were crop circles appearing at the Colossal Crops POI.

With the latest Fortnite teaser claiming that ‘They’re Coming’, it’s practically confirmed that Season 7 will revolve around the theme of Space and Aliens. So, make sure you’re ready on June 8 when the unknown arrive.
