Fortnite: Season 8 Starter Pack leaked in v17.50The Starter Pack for Chapter 2, Season 8 has been added to the game an update earlier than usual, in v17.50.

A closer look at the new set (via @Guille_GAG)

The new "D'Ark" Outfit was discovered by leakers in today's v17.50 patch and is confirmed to be part of an upcoming Starter Pack. The "Fallen Light" set contains the Outfit, "Shattered Hope" Back Bling and "Dark Blessing" harvesting Tool. It's possible the pack and its content could change before it's released in-game, however the cosmetics appear to be final so this is unlikely.

The D'Ark Outfit was originally spotted on a survey of upcoming Outfit designs from Epic Games earlier this year in may.

Once the new Starter Pack Bundle is released during the new Season, the current "Dizzie's Domain" Pack will be replaced and become unavailable.

Fortnite Update v17.50: What's New?Fortnite's latest update for Chapter 2, Season 7 is here with some major changes and additions to the game.

Following last week's theme of flying, week 3 of Fortnite's Wild Weeks is themed around high tech hijinks.

Wild Week 3 starts this Thursday and will make Alien & IO items extremely easy to find, with abductors only carrying the Kymera Ray Gun, Grab-itron, Prop-ifier, and Alien Nanites. The IO chests that can be found around the Battle Royale map will also only give the Pulse Rifle, Rail Gun, Plasma Cannon, and Inflate-A-Bull. In addition to the increased spawn rates, the Kymera Ray Gun, Pulse Rifle and Rail Gun will now be found in normal chests as well as at IO bases.

Fortnite have confirmed in their blog that the final Wild Week of Chapter 2, Season 7 will arrive next week, with details coming then. The Wild Weeks do not affect competitive playlists.

New Discover Screen

Fortnite's v17.50 update also introduces a brand new way to select limited time modes and creative maps.

In a clear move to push Fortnite towards its goal of becoming a major platform, Creative maps, gamemodes, LTMs and Battle Royale core playlists can now be selected from the same screen as each other. The new tags and categories features make navigating to a collection of Creative maps easier than ever, whilst still keeping the core Battle Royale modes simple to access.

The change comes months in advance of the upcoming major Chapter 3 update, which is expected to feature 'Creative 2.0' and modding support for Fortnite.

The Mothership

After months of affecting the Fortnite Island, The Mothership is expected to make its final abduction soon. The 'Corny Complex' location is expected to be abducted in the same way as Coral Castle and Slurpy Swap, which was renamed to 'Sludgy Swamp' in today's update.

As with all major updates, expect leaks from the final patch of chapter 2 season 7. According to an insider with a solid track record, there will be a live event to end the season. The insider mentioned that the countdown will begin on September 3rd. If that’s the case, we’ll see Epic add in the files for the event which will be encrypted.

However, it’s likely data-miners will be able to leak the countdown timer ahead of time. Furthermore, data-miners including Hypex have stated there will be back to school challenges. These will likely be added in v17.50 and will be leaked during downtime.

Expect new cosmetics to be leaked as normal. We won’t get too many new cosmetics as we’re close to the end of the season. The Epic Games insider did mention there will be a Shang-Chi collaboration. If the leak is correct, we’ll see it added in the update.
