2.Final Fortnite Season 8 Teaser Fortnite season 8 officially starts tomorrow, which means today’s teaser will be the last one. The first two teasers showed a snake and then a dragon, both surrounded by fire. This morning’s teaser shows a volcano in the foreground but we’re more interested in the banana in the background. Banana? Banana. There is clearly some sort of fire and brimstone theme here, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see how a banana fits into things.
