The new season in Fortnite: Battle Royale is just a few days away—and now, Epic Games has posted the first teaser image for season eight.

The image depicts what appears to be a pirate hook or hook hand of some kind. Similar to past seasons, the tweet also includes a short poem that mentions “X marks the spot,” treasure, and loot—which could be hinting at a pirate theme or cosmetic set in season eight.

In the past, Epic has posted daily teaser images leading up to the release of the new season. As season seven comes to an end, season eight is set to begin on Thursday, Feb. 28. 

The preseason teaser images usually have something to do with the upcoming season’s Battle Pass, which is sure to feature a ton of new cosmetic goodies for Fortnite fans. So today’s teaser image very well could be giving us our first look at one of the new skins coming in season eight.

We’ll officially find out what Epic has planned when Fortnite’s eighth season starts in four days.
