Epic Games updated the game news feed to announce a new item coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, Shadow Bomb (in the shadows).
Epic has released three patching / client updates in a row, something they typically do not do. Each update saw new files added, and dataminers leaked new content during the downtime.
The shadow bomb was originally leaked in the v8.40 update, however, there was no image of the item until the v8.50 update. Along with the image of the Shadow Bomb, the Shadow Bomb sound has been leaked, which can be heard in the tweet embedded below.

Epic recently updated the game news feed to announce that the new item would come to the Fortnite Battle Royale. The item description says: "Stealth and utility are a surprise!". You can see the image of the Shadow Bomb in the game news feed below.
Epic released the v8.50 update on a Thursday and the v8.40 update on a Wednesday, so there's no way to guess when the content update will be released. However, at the beginning of the season, Epic released most updates on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it's safe to assume we'll see the next update fall on one of two days.
We will keep you updated if any further information about the Shadow Bomb is released prior to launch. We'll also update you to see when the final season 8 update will be released.
