Gamers are reporting that the latest Fortnite event has occurred and could mean big things for the Floating Island.
According to those who have been keeping track of Kevin – currently stuck in the floating island – the cube could be returning to what used to be Loot Lake.
The island has been floating around the map for some time and now looks to have completed its task.
Having activated the runes originally left by the cube, it looks like the final ritual has been completed and all the runes have been dropped.
This week has featured the runes heading toward the island, which have now been headed back to the ground.
What this means is anyone’s guess, although fans are still hoping for some kind of big volcanic explosion, possibly as part of a new Halloween 2018 event.
This was hinted near the end of season 5 and was something Fortnite players thought would involve the cube.
There’s also the fact that the island now looks to be consuming everything on its surface, including the house.
Whatever Epic Games does have in mind for the cube and the island, we could be finding out very soon.
The development team have just started teasing Fortnitemares, which sounds like it’s being expanded for Halloween in 2018.
Epic Games posted a new picture of what looks to be a zombie calamity mash-up, along with the caption: “Costumes and dancing, Partner up, be wise. They could be friendly, Or a ghoul in disguise.”
Could this be a new LTM mode, much like we saw with the High Stakes event? It seems like that might be something Epic Games is hinting at.
And as fans found out with High Stakes, there could be new challenges and gear released too.
More teases could be released later this week as Epic Games starts gearing up for Halloween season.
Fortnite recently saw a new update released that changes the way games begin.
In order to make the action even more fast, frantic and chaotic, the Battle Bus has been given an update in the engine department.
Epic Games announced the news on Twitter, revealing that the Battle Bus would now travel at greater speeds.
“The Battle Bus is test driving an engine upgrade and now travels 25% faster while flying,” reads an Epic tweet. “Remember, always buckle up and thank your driver!”
