Fortnite Season 7 is almost here and we have the answers to all the big questions the community has about the upcoming season. Season 6 is almost over, so you only have a few days left to complete any challenges you may have missed. Season 7 is going to change things up in an exciting way, bringing alien visitors and more to the island. There's a lot to look forward to, including new locations, new skins, and a brand new Battle Pass. Here's everything you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, including start time, theme, leaks, and more.
When does Fortnite season 7 start?
Fortnite Chapter 7 Season 2 will begin on Tuesday June 8 2022. This has been confirmed by teasers released by Epic Games for the new season as well as the Season 6 Battle Pass end date. The exact start time has yet to be announced, but Epic Games will likely reveal more. information about the start of the new season as the date gets closer. Season 5 and Season 6 were both released at 1 h HP/4 h HE on their respective release dates, so Season 7 will likely follow a similar pattern.
When is the Season 7 Live Event?
As of now, no live event has been confirmed for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. According to known leaker HYPEX, there will be no live event this season. Instead, UFOs that have started abducting players will begin to appear more frequently and more alien events will occur on the island as Season 7 draws closer.

Season 6 kicked off with a single-player event called Zero Crisis Finale, and it's possible Epic Games will add another single-player event to the game at some point in the next season. As it stands, there are no events in the game files. The most we'll get is a trailer that will air when the season goes live, much like the one that came out alongside the launch of season 6.
What is the theme of season 7?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 will have a heavily alien-centric sci-fi theme. UFOs have already started appearing in certain locations on the map, abducting random players. Aliens will likely become a bigger threat once the season begins, and a ton of new weapons will be added to the loot pool to match the new theme.
Epic Games released a few images teasing new items coming in Season 7, and one of those items is a new shotgun pictured above. This weapon is called the Pulsar 9000, and it already exists in Save the World. Save the World weapons coming to Battle Royale are nothing new, but they almost always work differently than their PvE counterparts once they arrive on the island. We don't yet know how this weapon will work, but it looks like we'll be getting a new set of weapons to replace the existing Primals. Expect to see a new shotgun, assault rifle, machine gun, and sniper rifle.
What's in the Season 7 Battle Pass?
Season 7 Battle Pass skins and rewards have yet to be revealed, but many believe this season could contain more DC crossover characters or even Star Trek content. DC skins already exist in Fortnite, but with the recent Batman Zero Point comic becoming more important to the overall Fortnite story than most expected, with Raven being on the Season 6 Battle Pass and new DC skins like Beast Boy and Deathstroke hitting the shop element, it's clear that Epic Games is working closely with DC.

Season 7 won't be an entirely DC-themed season like Season 4 was for Marvel, but we could very well see more DC Comics heroes and villains appear next season. A Superman skin could even be coming to the game based on a cryptic teaser for Season 7 that depicts glasses that look a lot like the glasses Clark Kent wears. The teaser's caption states that the glasses make the wearer "unrecognizable," which looks a lot like Clark Kent wearing a simple disguise (seriously, it's just glasses) to become unrecognizable as Superman.
Another teaser alludes to Star Trek content, which would fit perfectly with the sci-fi theme of Season 7. When subjected to a spectrogram, one of the Season 7 teasers released by Epic Games reads "MALFUNCTION OF UNIVERSAL TRANSLATION”, which is perhaps a reference to the Star Trek series. Epic is usually very particular with their teasers because they know the community will take the smallest hint and work with it, so it's probably no accident that that phrase is there.

Expect to see Star Trek uniforms, Captain Kirk, Spock, and more in one form or another in the coming weeks. Whether they're in the Battle Pass or the Item Shop remains to be seen, but even if the teasers mean nothing, a crossover with Star Trek is inevitable. We already have Star Wars (these skins could also return given this season's space theme) and many other major franchises in Fortnite, so Star Trek is bound to arrive sooner or later.
As always, the Season 7 Battle Pass will cost 950 V-Bucks. If you've kept up to date with your Season 6 Battle Pass, you probably already have enough V-Bucks to get it. Otherwise, 1 V-Bucks will cost you $000. You can also subscribe to Fortnite Crew and get the Battle Pass and bonus V-Bucks and other items for just $7,99. If you want to get a head start on your seasonal tiers, you can purchase the regular Battle Pass bundle for 11,99 V-Bucks and get 2 tiers unlocked instantly.
