Fortnite UFO & Aliens Content Update - Features and Possible Release Date
UFOs may soon land in Fortnite!
Fortnite fans may be in for an extra-terrestrial treat very soon, as a UFO is expected to arrive in the Battle Royale game sometime today (June 1). But what will it do? Is it teasing Season 7? So many questions need to be answered!
Thanks to various Fortnite leakers and data miners, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what the UFO will do and when we can expect to see it arrive in-game.

Fortnite UFO & Aliens
UPDATE: UFOs are now live in-game! Check out the clip below to see them in action. Be careful not to get abducted.
Ever since the final update for Chapter 2 Season 6 was released, strange occurrences have begun around the Battle Royale map. Most notably is the Alien Markings/Crop Circles that have appeared at the Colossal Crops POI.
Although this was the only feature that appeared in-game, there were plenty of leaks and data mines that point towards a UFO and Aliens appearing in Fortnite incredibly soon.
On May 29, according to Fortnite leaker VastBlast, a hotfix was released modifying the spawn rates of UFOs. This means that they are indeed a real thing that will be arriving in Fortnite very soon!
The UFOs and Aliens could start appearing as soon as today (June 1), that’s according to Fortnite leaker HYPEX anyway. If the new content update isn’t released today, expect them to arrive in Season 7.
As well as these in-game occurrences and leaks, Fortnite content creators such as InTheLittleWood have started receiving strange packages. The packages in question appear to be teasing something Fortnite related with a DVD titled ‘They’re Coming’.
Check out footage from the DVD, which features real life crop circles, in the tweet below.

So, what will the UFOs actually do in Fortnite? According to leakers, players can expect the UFOs to begin appearing randomly across the Battle Royale map.
Once you come close to a UFO, it’s possible that you may begin glowing and could even be abducted by the UFO and spat out at another part of the map.
Unfortunately, though, these features are partly speculation from leakers and it won’t be known what the UFOs actually do until they’re live in-game. Once the UFOs are live, we’ll update this article with more information!
