Fortnite Season 7 is just around the corner, and new leaks claim that we could see players getting abducted by aliens in UFOs in the near future.

Fortnite’s 16.50 update officially dropped on May 25, returning the Dual Pistols and Drum Shotgun to the loot pool, along with a sneaky hint about the possible appearance of Marvel’s Loki.

As always, dataminers have been sifting through the updates files to try and discover what’s coming to the game in the next few weeks. It seems Fortnite could be out of this world in the near future, quite literally, after a number of files about aliens were spotted.

One of the first things found by leaker Mang0e_ was a set of audio files, which sound like aliens communicating and moaning.

After that, Twitter user gameshed_ found an animation of the aliens, which appears to show them abducting players who are running around on the map.

In the clip, the creature appears to be beamed down from a ship before reaching down and plucking an unsuspecting Fortnite character before returning to their spacecraft.

According to HYPEX, the UFOs will spawn randomly around the map and will be able to abduct single players or full squads. It’s unclear if it will be by choice or at the whim of the creatures, but you’ll then be teleported somewhere else after getting healed and your shields filled.

Whether this is a teaser for what the theme of Season 7 will remain to be seen, but some fans have suggested that this is directly linked to the Foreshadowing Quests.

While we don’t have all the answers just yet, it’s likely that we’ll find out what the aliens are doing on the map in the near future.
