Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 has taken players back to Fortnite Chapter 1, also known as Season OG. The update has left players reminiscing in nostalgia as Epic Games has brought back many old gameplay mechanics and items and the season started with Chapter 1, Season 5. When players entered Season 6, they once again enjoyed older items, such as the Hoverboards in Fortnite.


This has left fans wondering when they’ll experience more of the older seasons, such as Fortnite OG Seasons 7 & 8. After all, these seasons were one of the most fun times fans had in Fortnite. Epic Games introduced a snowy biome in Season 7. Season 8 came with many pirate-themed attractions all over the map.
