In Season 8 of Fortnite, pirate cannon isn’t going to be the one and only pirate-y item players may see because an update from Epic Games unveiled that a brand-new item coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale with the name: Buried Treasure.

1 New item coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale season 8!

Sooner or later, maps for buried treasure will appear in the game since maybe Port-a-Forts way back when. Those maps somehow would be among of the most left-field additions to Fortnite. According to Epic Games’ update, the new item’s description reads: “Scour the island for hidden loot with the new Buried Treasure item,”.

There’s not much information which has been leaked out such as the official releasing date of Buried Treasure or how the new item will function. However, the treasure has been a part of Fortnite for such a long time and we all realize its absence through the two previous seasons. So, it would be logical if the game developers make treasure more visible via treasure maps to reveal unique, powerful weapons hidden somewhere around us, which would fire a race to find them.


How will the treasure map work?

Cause in no likelihood can we know anything else about this item until it’s officially introduced. Some situations have been imagined while we are waiting to figure out what effect Buried Treasure has on the game. One of those predicts that this new item could possibly be the key point impacting the battles, varying on its functions as well as what kind of treasure the map reveals. The map may drop as loot or out of chests. Then players will get it and use it or open it in their inventory. Maybe a big red X will appear somewhere around, which locates the treasure. Come to the X for a nice cache of loot and find out what it contains inside.

Epic seems to leak teasers of new items a bit sooner than the official launch time so Buried Treasure item is expected to join the world of Fortnite either tomorrow or Thursday.
